We have worked with a lot of elite footballers over the years who have gone on to achieve big things. Below are some quotes about their experiences from training with us.
I have been working with Jack for over three years now, and he has been one of the main coaches who have changed my footballing career. I first started training with Jack at Hayes and Yeading, where he was the Under-18s coach. Jack gave me Under-18s experience when I was only 15 and 16, and this developed me so much as a player and person - both mentally and physically. I ended up getting scouted for AFC Wimbledon, and signed a two year scholarship. Jack worked with me during my first off-season, where he developed my footwork significantly, and also worked on a lot of position-specific practice. Throughout these three years with Jack and The Academy Player, they have massively helped me to develop, and Jack has also been a good mentor to help me achieve my dream of becoming a professional footballer.
I have been doing pre-season at The Academy Player for five seasons now. I have really enjoyed doing it over the years, with it really helping me to come back strong and sharp to every pre-season!
My son, Rafi, has been training with Jack since 2018. In those three years, every aspect of his game has improved. From the speed of his feet, to his decision making and shooting, plus all other aspects of the game - Jack has made him considerably better. Jack's attention to detail is second to none, and I would recommend any young footballer to give him a try see the improvement for yourself. He always pushes Rafi to the maximum, to really try to test him and gain the best results possible.
My daughter found Jack and The Academy Player on Instagram. What a find! She has loved being coached at such an intense level with such positive encouragement and understanding at the same time. Thank you to the whole TAP team!
