What Our Client Say

Thanks Leon. It’s really great to have seen him respond to all the great coaching you have given him. I definitely see that you encourage the out-of-the-box play.. I particularly enjoyed the double-shoe-tie before the PK yesterday morning.

Hello Leon, Many thanks for everything this past year Leon. Brodie has improved so much and he loves the experience and he can't wait to be a part of it all again next season. Hope you get some time off now and if so, enjoy the break...See you soon. John

Hi Leon, Check this out... I had parents night at Felix's school tonight, and found a poster all about him. You're the subject of Meet My Hero. Sorry the picture got cut off a bit. I'll try to get a better one. I thought it was so darling that he picked you for his hero, had to share.

Hey Leon, I hope you are doing well. We miss you. I thought I would write because I cannot tell you how many times I ask Miles how he knew how to do something and he says "Leon taught me that." Miles is having a great year. He has only allowed 7 goals in 7 league matches, 3 clean sheets. I just thought you might like to hear your efforts continue to make young keepers better, months later. We hope you and your family are doing well. Russ

Leon, Fred Tencic here. I want to thank you for coaching with Joel Barlow this season, but especially for your support and encouragement of Lily. We deeply and sincerely appreciate it and Lily does as well. We hope to see you back next year. Having the addition of you to the coaching staff was just a phenomenal benefit to the entire program. Thanks again, and best regards.
