Train2Play Testimonials:

“After two days, there is a significant increase in my confidence, which is translating to increased performance. I find myself demanding the ball, instead of being afraid of it. My favourite areas are the Train2Play funfit and a legit workout tracking system.” - Gabe Quesada: FC

Boulder U23s & 2016 Scholar Athlete of the Year at Indiana Wesleyan University “Train2Play did a great job putting me on the right path to achieve substantial improvement in my game. it’s helped me to get into a D1 college soccer program which I’ll be starting next season. Effective went to the core and really set out a great foundation to build upon. I’ve used other training programs that lack that.” - Saliho Toure: American University D1

“I have never been the most talented player. When I was 16, I transferred to a high level team but I wasn’t a starter. But I trained on my own every day and one year later I was one of the key players. Another year later I earned a scholarship for a college in America. Train2Play does not only offer drills but also helps you to become a smarter player.” - Katharina Baumann: FC Köln
