Summer’s Story


As the Women’s U-20 World Cup came to an end, Next Level Training wanted to share a story and conversation with U-20 standout and North Carolina superstar, Summer Green. Before we get into the conversation, I wanted to share some history and information about Summer for those that may not know her.



My First Encounter
Summer first trained with me and our Next Level staff about 4 years ago at our invite only camp. I could tell right away not only was she a special player, but she was one of the most dynamic, dangerous and creative players I’d seen play. Her movement and vision were unbelievable and her instinct for the game was obvious. She would see players and situations develop a step or two ahead every time the ball was around her. She was calm and confident with the ball and if she got someone 1 v. 1 it was not a good end result for that defender.



Training Summer Green

Years later now, I’ve had the privilege of training Summer countless times in an individual and group setting. The one thing I love about training Summer is the fact she is a perfectionist and wears her emotions on her sleeve. She is always eager to learn and listen and never backs away from the work she knows is required. When anyone ever asks what separates her from others who play the game, I advise them to just watch her work in a session. Her attention to detail and demand for perfection are incredible. Her work rate, attitude and technical ability are unmatchable. She knows the reason she’s there and she’s 100% focused on her task at hand. She never complains about how hard something is. She never complains when I tell her it’s not good enough and to do it again. Her attitude is a direct reflection on why she is at the level she is at today.



U-20 World Cup

Anyone who watched the USA round robin games cannot argue that Summer was an absolute game changer. Every time she came on the field, her energy, creativity and technical ability changed each game for the better. Watching her perform in the manner she did on that stage couldn’t make me happier. Breaking down her game, I can recall numerous moments that were identical to things we’ve done in training hundreds and hundreds of times. They would look good and she would want to do it again, again, and again to perfect her technique. She was quick to realize that “good enough” is not good enough. And it’s for these reasons that she absolutely dominated when she was on the field against the Germans, Brazilians and China.


Questions for Summer

NLT: Why do you choose Next Level Training instead of other training avenues when you’re home in Michigan?

Summer: I choose NLT because I never leave without feeling better. I’m always pushed to do better and I also have fun doing it.

NLT: What do you like about training with NLT that keeps you competing at the highest levels?

Summer: What I like about training with NLT is that if you’re ready to work, you won’t find better and more realistic skill sets, finishing and fitness drills elsewhere.

NLT: What advice can you offer to all our NLT athletes that will help them achieve their soccer dreams?

Summer: I would say to do a program like NLT whenever you can and also something on your own with the ball every day.

NLT: What would our readers find Summer doing if she wasn’t on a soccer field, or with NLT?

Summer: I would either be riding horses, hanging out with my friends or be out on a lake or ocean. I am more of a country, open space girl. I don’t like cities and crowded areas
I can’t wait for many more sessions with Summer and what else this game holds for her. The future is bright and you won’t find a better athlete to train. She is always inspiring me to be better at what I do for people like her that commit and dedicate themselves to their passion. Can’t wait to see her at 7:00 am again in the gym for that intense pre-training gym workout before we head out to the field. Congrats Summer and best of luck from all of us at NLT for your continued and well deserved success.

NOTICE: Changes Made to Refund Policy

We no longer offer refunds. Too often have we turned people away because we are full only to receive an email stating that someone has decided to join the school basketball team, etc and can no longer train with us. This is costly to our business and it means that someone who really wanted to train with us couldn’t because we didn’t have a spot. We also receive emails requesting refunds for missed classes. We will no longer issue refunds for classes not attended as this is also very costly to our business. This applies to everyone, whether you’ve signed up for 8 or 5 or 2 classes, etc. Should you have a scheduling conflict we will, of course, do our best to place you in another class. If you opt not to be placed in another class we will not issue a refund. Regarding refunds due to injury, we follow MSYSA guidelines regarding injury related withdrawals, meaning we will refund for injuries, but require a note from your child’s doctor before issuing a refund.

April 21st, 2014


URGENT… We have just been informed that Yahoo has made it difficult to send mass emails so many of you did not receive the May/June mailer. Please find it below and please pay particular attention to #1 on the list. Make sure you add to your contacts to ensure you receive future emails.

Hi all,

Welcome to the May/June session. We apologize for the delay in posting the schedule, but in the tradition of spring and growth, we have a lot of exciting new things we’ve been working on. I’m not allowed to do the big reveal just yet, but make sure you’re checking the website,, for announcements and updates. I know I say this every time, but I really do have some important information for you. So important that I’m going to make it number one on my list (please excuse my total lack of tech knowledge/speak):

1. My mass email provider has just informed me that Yahoo has put something in their programming that makes all emails sent through a proxy server like my mass email provider look like spam to some (most) accounts. I get that they’re trying to protect their clients from getting spammed, but that makes it very inconvenient for us. While it may or may not be an issue, we have decided to treat it as one and create a Gmail account to use with our provider. That address is nextlevelinfo9@gmail. All this long winded explanation means is that you will need to add that address to your contacts so you will receive the next mailing. This address is for the purposes of sending out the schedule, camp flyer, etc. Any and all correspondence will still go through my Yahoo account.

2. The session runs from 4/29 – 6/30.

3. We will NOT hold class on 6/9, 10, 11, & 12. Instead, we will be holding our Pre-Tryout Camp. Make sure you check the website for that flier, though I should be sending that out as well in the next couple weeks.

4. Speaking of camp, have you signed up for NLT summer camp yet? Since I managed to get the flier out early, registrations have been pouring in from everywhere, even places as far flung as Asia, so I suggest signing up soon!

5. When you register for a class, please register for your first choice and include your second and third choices in the comments box. If you would like to take more than one class this session, please indicate that you are registering for multiple classes in the comments box.

6. When registering, please do not register for a class outside your age group. If your child is an u11 but plays u14 you still must register for an u11 class. Our trainers will make the decision whether or not your child needs to be moved.

7. Please, please make sure you are checking the website. Any important announcements will be posted on our homepage. Typically about 90% of your training questions can be answered in the FAQs.

Thank you all for your dedication to NLT. We are so pleased to have built such a quality family of committed, hardworking students. We are so looking forward to seeing both old and new faces this session.
