"When you watch Coach Alex work with the kids, it is obvious that he really knows what he is doing. When you talk with him you really appreciate the deep knowledge he has of the game of soccer, the strategy and skills behind playing and how to teach it all. Yet I believe his greatest attribute is that he understands at a core level how people LEARN the game (especially children) which allows him to target his training for the level his students are at and come up with creative and fun ways for them to master what they need to move to the next level. We look forward to (hopefully) have our twins in his training for a long time to come."

"When I arrived in Belgium, I felt ready for my tryouts and was able to play at the level, if not higher, than the girls."
