Owner & Founder
While I was still coaching in Germany, the biggest deficiency I would see with US soccer players was being given correct instruction at the youngest level. European players are raised with fundamentals and technical training right from the start, but Americans put their kids on the field and point them in the direction of the goal. I started A2D to address this challenge for those kids with a passion to play the game well.
