    Hello Coach , my name is Mike Van Fleet , I live in Syracuse Utah. I have a son who is ten yrs old and plays Soccer, I want him to get quicker,and faster, I would like him to learn how to do that with proper mechanics and techniques. I’m trying to find someone that could show him how to do that. I was wondering if you could or know someone that could give him some one on one instruction. I’m willing to pay for some lessons. Would be very much appreciated, Thank You
