YOUR GAME, YOUR SOCCER TRAINING
ARE YOU SATISFIED?
At FIRSTOUCH FUTBOL, I know that many young soccer players want to take their game to the next level and even aspire to play college soccer. Yet, despite all of their hard work, they notice themselves without a plan and underperforming, leaving them frustrated. As a result, I’ve designed The NeXt Level Academy, a program that teaches dedicated soccer players the High-Performance Habits necessary to eat, think, and train like a D1 college competitor.
“Hunter’s biggest challenge was finding a training environment with like-minded players and a coach invested in his personal growth. He felt frustrated and wasn’t progressing in the ways he wanted to. Joining FTF was life-changing for Hunter. His trajectory completely changed, and his passion for the game and training is at an all-time high and continuing upward. He is on track to play at his dream college. He has progressed to being a starter for his regional teams and a contender for scholarships at top schools in the country. There is no other training available in our state that offers the complete package of nutrition, mindset skills, training, and college recruiting guidance that FTF does.”
"LEADERSHIP & MENTORSHIP"
“Oliver desired to be an asset on his team but lacked the confidence and skill set. As a parent, the challenge was frustrating, and Oliver was very disappointed that his best efforts weren’t enough. His head coach noticed Oliver’s performance at his first tournament after joining FTF, and with his improved effort and quality, he was rewarded by being made a team captain. Oliver began to practice the leadership skills learned at FTF. Oliver went from being a sub on a select team to a consistent starter on an academy-level team. Through Coach James’ leadership and mentorship program, Oliver has excelled not just on the field but in other areas of his life. If your soccer player desires to get to the next level, FTF is the place to be! The biggest reward of joining FTF is seeing the maturity my son has developed in sharing the pitch with college-level players and younger players alike. His level of soccer has improved drastically, and top players from his previous teams have noticed his improvement and have decided to join FirsTouch Futbol.”
"PROFESSIONALISM & EXPERTISE"
“Sebbie has experienced many different mentors, coaches, and teachers, and none have risen to the level of professionalism and expertise as James Burns. He sets the tone in each training session in intensity and effort to show them exactly what it takes to become an elite soccer player.”
