    Prospect Soccer Academy Testimonial:

    My kids have played for DA and ECNL teams in California, and have worked with a lot of good coaches both here and in Europe. Prospect soccer is better than good – they’re great. They are encouraging, positive, and bring out the best in their players. Harry and Rob are very knowledgeable about the training methods of today’s top soccer players and professional teams. My kids learn something every time, and they look forward to every training session.

    The camp actually taught him

    June 2021: Camp communications were great! The coaches answered questions from parents even on the Sunday before the camp. My 9 year old felt like the camp actually taught him serious stuff unlike other camps where they pretty much let kids play without teaching new skills. Coach Josh Scriven was friendly, encouraging and eternally patient. Coach Harry Forrester was great n helpful. When I went to pick up my kid, I was carrying a dozen things. He offered to help take my kid to the rest room so I did not have to walk all the way across the area. I’d send my kid here again!

    Very Engaging

    June 2021: Wyatt really got engaged with soccer hearing his coach talk about his experience as a pro soccer player. Wyatt’s club coach suggested some areas to work on. I informed his coach of those areas and the coach said he would address them.
