"I took away several important things from SSA that aided me in my soccer career. One of the biggest things I learned was that I could always do (and be) better. Tim pushes his students to always ask more of themselves and never settle for less than perfect. He uses the expression 'perfect practice makes perfect' and I believe it to be the motto that inspires all of his kids to live by."

"SSA provided an atmosphere where my passion for the game grew, and over time, so did my abilities. The training environment was unique and helped me develop in all aspects of the game. This provided me with the confidence to go anywhere and play for anyone and feel comfortable. Whether it was with the regional team, my college team or against professional teams I could go into any high level environment and know I could compete."

"Tim’s has more knowledge for the game of soccer than anyone I know. His love for soccer is matched by his love for kids, which makes him an incredible coach, mentor, and friend. The academy gave me confidence, a creative outlet, and a second family. I believe every kid willing to work hard in SSA will enjoy the same experiences."
