Richard’s knowledge and passion for the game combined with outstanding guest speakers made this an enjoyable and very educational experience ”

“This is a topic every youth coach should be aware of, especially if players have aspirations beyond club soccer.”

“This course provided me with more than I had signed up for.  Richard is very knowledgeable in his field, and his passion for soccer is infectious.  What I liked most about this course is the science behind the material.  The information provided is invaluable for anybody looking to continue to develop the performance of soccer players from grass-root levels to professional athletes.”

“I would recommend this course 100%”

“Youth soccer coaches are charged with the responsibility to develop players. In order to help these athletes reach their full potential, one needs to know why and how the body works and reacts to certain stimuli. The Soccer Fitness Trainer’s Course is key to understanding the relationship between the body and the game we love: soccer. With Richard’s meticulous on field and classroom sessions, one learns why it is important to know the human body in order to train it to compete.”

“Any coach who is dedicated to their own professional development and who cares about their athletes needs to take the Soccer Fitness Trainer’s Course.”

Dani McKay

U12 Girls Rep. Coach, U13 Girls OPDL Coach, Burlington Youth Soccer Club


“The Soccer Fitness Trainer’s Course was one of the best courses I have taken, so informative and step-by-step teachings of how to train soccer players including biomechanics and the science behind it all.”

“I am so excited to start implementing and training soccer players.”

It was something I’ve always wanted to do.

Natalie Valencia

Girls’ Head Coach

Erin Mills Soccer Club


“Having completed the Soccer Fitness Trainer’s course, I now have a far deeper understanding of the importance and application of proper fitness training for the players that I coach.

When I had first heard about the course, I knew I just had to do it, and going in, I believed that it would change the way I coach for the better.  I expected great things from this course.  Too often, courses, etc. tend to fall somewhat short of expectations.  In this case however, my expectations proved to fall far shorter than what the course actually provided.”

“Richard taught us information that went far further than what I could have expected, in a way that was manageable and understandable.  I highly recommend the Soccer Fitness Trainer’s Course.”

“Thank you Richard for making this course available!”

Rich Cowan

Head Coach, Girls U16

Kingston Clippers Soccer Club


“What a great weekend of learning with Richard from Soccer Fitness! This is one of the first courses I have attended where everything is science-  and evidence-based, with proper data and references to recent studies about soccer. The material was well presented and organised, so it helps people ranging from beginners to even advanced level coaches and fitness trainers to understand it, and then be able to utilise it for their needs.”

“As a fitness trainer and gym owner who works with all level of athletes and clientele, I can utilise the materials from this weekend to provide better knowledge and service that can better my clients.”

“Thank you once again Richard.”

Atif Khedri (Coach AK)

Owner, Strength and Conditioning Coach, AK Playground

“Richard,

I can’t thank you enough for putting this course together. I know it takes a great deal of preparation to put together a course of this nature.

Your information was outstanding and the in depth analysis into each component of the program was great. What came across, for me, was your knowledge and passion for the subject matter. You really put your heart into making sure that each of us came away from the course with the information that we need to ensure that our athletes are fit and physically prepared for the sport of soccer. I also really appreciated Farzad’s presentation.”

“I am far more knowledgeable and confident in preparing my players for the upcoming season!”

Thanks again & Best Wishes,
