“I am not a believer in burn out.  I do believe, however, that many leave the sport because we have failed to give them the tools to succeed. I have met many players who thought they were playing soccer only to find when they reached high school that they had been misled.  They leave the game because they cannot compete. They could have competed if trained right from day one.”

“Teach Skills and They Will Play a Lifetime.”
