Testimonials

“The program that John Gregg has devised follows the player development philosophy held by US Youth Soccer.  The opportunity for the players to receive weekly guidance to improve their game will be invaluable.  Coach Gregg has designed a professional developmental plan that will no doubt benefit many young American players.”

 

Sam Snow, Director of Coaching Education - US Youth Soccer

"I have known John Gregg for over twenty years and I have been very impressed with the goalkeepers that have trained with him. Many players are now technical goalkeepers thanks to John, and he has helped to improve all aspects of their game, including decision-making, positioning and their overall understanding of the tactical role the goalkeeper plays. His training methods improve the overall quality of the whole athlete, giving them the tools to be confident and prepared every time they step on the field."
