"I was fortunate enough to be able to train with  Dennis over the summer. He is an unbelievably talented coach. I went into the summer having doubt about my ability on the ball and he was able to not only build my confidence but make me a better player overall. He pushed me to work on technical and tactical skills that were far out of my comfort zone. His enthusiasm and dedication to the sport is contagious and made me look forward to coming to every training session. I set a goal at the beginning of the summer to become a better more focused player, Dennis helped me accomplish that. I am so thankful to have such a passionate and knowledgeable coach. I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without his help."

"To say Dennis is a great Coach is an understatement - he sees the game better than almost anyone I know.  He has the ability to pro-actively adjust to another team's playing style, and most importantly, he is able to incite a passion for the game that is unmatched by any of his coaching peers. Having Dennis as my coach, developed me into the player I am today, and I will never be able to thank him enough."

"Dennis creates a coaching environment defined by passion, dedication, and expert knowledge. In the six years I have known him, he has devoted countless hours to one-on-one instruction with me, helping me improve not only my technical and tactical skill, but also my confidence on the ball.  What sets him apart from other coaches is his energy and his immeasurable love of soccer.  Dennis coaches through demonstration, engaging in drills with his players rather than instructing from the sideline.  I learned so much from Dennis by playing with him and feeding off his competitive spirit.  When I was coming back from an injury, Dennis committed endless hours to helping me regain my comfort and skill.  He has an incredible ability to see potential in players.  Dennis recognizes the unique characteristics of his players, challenging each one’s individual strengths and improving weaknesses.  He has been one of the most motivating forces in my soccer career, pushing me, encouraging me, and strengthening my love of soccer. Dennis is not only an incredible coach, but he is a fan, a mentor, and an inspiration."
