"Hi Alex, just reaching out to say thank you for your work with the students at our school. From k-6 you were able to engage each student to learn not only practical skills on the football pitch but also in other subject areas as you integrated geography, maths, science and languages into your lessons." Will Glasson, Principal
"Alex has been a soccer coach at our Service for 3 years now and we are very grateful to have him. Alex has a good understanding of children and how best to teach them through play. Children look forward to Alex’s visits each week and families all give feedback on how much they notice improvement in their child’s skill development and enthusiasm for participating in active play. Alex works in with each Services curriculum and modifies his approach to the children’s skills and interest." Kerry Valensteen, Director of the Bangalow Community Children's Centre
"Alex is the best soccer coach in the area...with his extensive knowledge and incredible passion is the perfect addition to your kid's training...Coming from a background where soccer is everything, like a religion, we found with Alex the same professionalism and values we have in Italy! I couldn't recommend Alex enough...My 6yo boy learned so much in so little time and his soccer skills are much better than before...there should be hundreds like him. Thank you, Alex!!!!!" Daria Bove
“Awesome coaching & such a fun programme - my son has hugely grown in all areas of soccer - especially techniques & team playing but most importantly confidence. I would recommend this programme to any parents whose kids show a real love for soccer. Alex will bring out the best in them with his professional attributes & fun attitude. It’s a unique programme.” Becky Seary
"Just wanted to say thanks for the continued support, guidance and feedback you gave Jay throughout the year. There were times where he was down morally but you had a chat or did a quick check on him and he responded quite well. He enjoyed every bit of it and looked forward to improving everyday." Param Reddy
"Alex Spengler has provided soccer training for the preschool children in my care for a few years now. Alex is enthusiastic and engages the children with a variety of themes and topics during soccer sessions. He understands the needs and developmental abilities of the children and his sessions are always tailored to suit the children in our care. Alex runs session with small groups of children independently in a nearby park with preschool educators present but not needing to assist much. His sessions develop a variety of skills each time and Alex is flexible and easy to communicate with. The children love it when soccer sessions incorporate links to our weekly curriculum, and Alex has been very proactive in finding out what topics we are planning for in the room and linking them to his soccer training. I would highly recommend Alex’s soccer sessions for any centre. The children thrive on the physical challenges Alex provides in a positive and encouraging manner, and the families love that we are running a PE/soccer session each week in addition to our program."
