What they are saying
“Not only are they great coaches, but they are great mentors and role models. I'm thrilled my son is involved in the program and would highly recommend others to join.”
“If you have a teenager that wants to get a little better or a lot better, wants to play in HS, or club, or college, this is a great option. And Brian is a phenomenal guy too, he has raised hundreds of thousands for cancer research through various athletic feats.”
“My daughter starting training last fall and has seen a tremendous improvement in such a short time period. She is quicker, more confident, more aggressive, and technically sharper than I've ever seen her before. It seems like she has really hit new levels with Plus One Training.”
“My son had unsuccessfully tried out for a few travel teams and was feeling down on his luck. One of the coaches referred us to Brian and we are so lucky he did.”
“We met Brian five years ago through a friend and over the years he has become not only a mentor to my son and daughter, but a great family friend. He has had such a wonderful and positive influence on their lives and helped them reach levels in soccer.”
