JORDAN HENDERSON – ex-Sunderland AFC star, now Liverpool FC captain – said:
“I would certainly recommend Improtech Soccer to any aspiring young player who has the desire to improve all aspects of their technique. The intense technical drills are a big help in bringing young players on. And the vast experience of the coaches at Improtech has helped them create an environment that encourages freedom, expression, innovation and enjoyment”.
What you’ve said about Improtech
We asked parents and players to complete a questionnaire giving us feedback on everything we do and ideas for the future. Here are some of their comments:
“I really enjoy the variation each night and working with different coaches”
“It is very professional and the standard of coaching is very high”
“My son relaxes when he comes to the sessions and feels that he can express himself”
“The games challenge day was really exciting as we played different games and were coached at the same time”
“I would just like to say thanks for the great coaching you all do. My son Lewis has improved his game and he is also a lot more confident on the ball. His improvement has been noticed by parents off his team as he has had plenty of compliments from them, which is nice to hear, so thanks again your hard work”
“Loved it, he will be joining. He is even talking about getting a rebound net. Kieran said it was the best session he had ever had, cheers”
“Josh is really enjoying the sessions and thoroughly enjoyed yesterday. He came away buzzing so that is really pleasing for us to see”
“Liam is really enjoying the training, very good standard of players in the group he is in, which sets a very competitive pace. Definitely notice a sharpness in his game since he has been attending”
“Martin really enjoyed training, he came home buzzing last night, I personally think the set-up is awesome! He has been to a couple of development centres that are miles behind what you guys are doing. I feel he will progress, learn and develop a great deal if he continues at this level”
to be the best - learn from the best
We at Improtech have found some of the following quotes the most inspirational for young sports people and it these sort of values we try to impress on our youngsters:
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed”.
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do”.
“Practice does not make perfect…. Only perfect practice makes perfect”.
“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done”.
“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you’ll be successful”.
“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill”.
“Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted”.
“To achieve great things you have first to believe it”.
“Don’t tell me the sky is the limit, when there are footprints on the moon”.
