FirstStepSoccer


Instructor: Dan Ferrando

These sessions are where so many young players go to have a fun first-time soccer experience. Coach Dan knows that habits are built once a young child starts to kick a ball. FirstStepSoccer was created to instill the proper habits to our young aspiring soccer players. Dan is always positive, encouraging and meets each player where they are in their development. Building each players confidence level is key to each young players growth, and is why skills will always be appropriate and achievable. As players achieve specific skills, they will be challenged with more skills to be developed; and, overcome. Dan’s sessions are always fun based. His love for teaching soccer clearly shows; and, truly takes a special interest in teaching his youngest players.
