“I just watched Gol! Last night. The footwork and dribbling are utterly jaw-dropping! Great video, produced extremely well.” Coach Bruce

“I am a High School Coach and I love your videos. Yesterday I showed our teams the GOL video on the bus on the way home. My goalies now want to see more videos. Thanks.” Coach John, CA, USA

Every coach at any level will get good training and warm-up ideas from this DVD, and players will be motivated by watching it. It is really fun, eye-opening and entertaining.

Review: This is the most fun soccer coaching DVD I’ve ever watched and the best to inspire players to practice to improve ball control, foot skills and moves. I can watch it over and over and every time it thrills me, inspires me and makes me realize why I love soccer and why it’s called the “beautiful game”. Every coach at any level will get good training and warm-up ideas from this DVD. It is the most fun DVD to watch with players and everyone will enjoy it – coaches, players and parents. It will inspire anyone who watches it – both you and the players will want to get a ball and start practicing. It teaches fun and creativity. It shows Simon Clifford, an Englishman, training English boys using a Brazilian style of training. Clifford went to Brazil, studied their training, and developed this training program. He is a very articulate, insightful guy and an excellent teacher. He says the emphasis in youth soccer should be on skill development and fun, and we agree. This DVD proves that a player doesn’t have to be a great athlete to become a great ballhandler. This is a very high quality training DVD that is fun and a truly exceptional value. Players will be motivated by watching this DVD and you can watch it many times and not get bored. Much of the training it presents can be practiced indoors or even in your home (a lot of it is footwork). It shows a training program for improving foot skills using all areas of the foot and all legal parts of the body (thighs, chest, head and shoulders). The instructor is Simon Clifford, founder of the Brazilian Football Academy and Brazilian Soccer Schools, and a consultant to the film “Bend It Like Beckham”. Clifford has excellent teaching skills and is charismatic. Over 150,000 youth in England, Australia and the U.S. now use this training program and it is changing English soccer. Michael Owen and other famous players have studied this program. The program is based on the training methods used in Brazil, and the Brazilians are thought of as having the best footwork, creativity and ball control in the world. Coaches can use the training program presented to train their players. The main program is 85 minutes and there are also Bonus features. The organization and navigation of the DVD is excellent. We highly recommend this DVD. This training approach can lead to creative, spectacular, breath-taking play, as you will see in minute 43 of the DVD. This DVD proves that a player who practices a lot can become good, even if he or she isn’t a great athlete. If you watch this, you will see that the “moves” go far beyond what you see in most American soccer. This video complements the SoccerHelp Practice Games and is consistent with the Soccerhelp Program.

I’ve been playing soccer for over 10 years and have seen most of the major videos. I had no idea what to expect when I got this video – I actually had bought it mainly since it had Mr. Woo on there. But, this turned out to be one of the best advanced individual skills videos I’ve seen. This video is geared for the advanced player – if you’re beginner/intermediate, most of the other videos or just clips off the net will cover basics like Matthews, Cruyff move, etc. This video doesn’t waste a lot of time with that (which I really enjoyed). You’ll see a lot of moves to beat an opponent, freestyle / juggling tricks, etc. not covered in other videos I’ve seen. Recommended if you want to take your game to the next level.
