    I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Next-Level for the work they have done with Aarav. I have seen his skills develop from the first time he was introduced to Next-Level last summer, when he was playing for a B-team of an average club to now when he is playing for an A-team of a very competitive club. Doing the camps and the regular technical training throughout the year has been key to bringing him where he is today. Continuing with Next-Level for me is a no- brainer and truly well worth the money.

    NLT is first class. If you are looking for excellent skills/technical training for your child at a high level, this is the place to be. We can’t thank the coaches enough for their dedication toward building confidence in our eager player. As long as our daughter continues to love the game, we will continue to work under the direction of Next Level Training.

    Just wanted to send a big thank you to everyone at Next Level…. My son, Joshua, did not make the school team last year. He started training with you right after he was cut. The same coach that cut him last year told him he saw a “big improvement” this year….He made the team! You guys made the difference!!!

    Thanks again

    I just wanted to express my gratitude to the Next Level Training team. My daughter, Gabriella (Ella), has only been training with NLT since March. She also participated in the 4 day pre-tryout camp in Bloomfield with Scotty and Aaron. This weekend on day 1 of tryouts, she was signed onto her first choice travel club team! Her growth and confidence at tryout is largely attributed to the development program at NLT and all the wonderful trainers on staff. From Ella and from us, thank you so much! We look forward to many more great training sessions.

    Our son Seth has trained with NLT for 2 years. Seth has always loved being challenged by soccer but found a comfort early on with defense and so he viewed himself as a ‘defender’.

    By training in different disciplines with NLT he sees himself now as a ‘soccer player’ who can play anywhere on the field. He considers the bigger picture during game play and makes better decisions on the field because of it.

    He has had 4 different trainers for various classes and each have brought exceptional teaching skill including clear communication, patience, discipline and commitment to make each session as valuable as possible.

    This is what sets NLT apart to us is that we feel equally comfortable with whomever leads a class knowing the quality is the same and the plan is consistent. We know if Seth is willing to come to work each session and be open to the instruction, he can’t help but improve.

    Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your growing program. It has been wonderful for his development not only as a soccer player but even more so as a person in how he values himself and sees possibility in both soccer and outside of soccer.

    We wish you nothing but success and hope more and more families have the opportunity to have the same experience.

    Class act all the way around: Energetic, professional, motivating, and challenging. Next level kept the group focused and on task working hard with 100% effort the entire session. Every player in attendance enjoyed the training and the atmosphere NLT provided. The only question afterwards was “when do we get to train with Aaron again”. Best technical training I have seen, well done!!!

    Next Level Training has benefited my children, Suhasani and Bartholemeu, so much in their game. It has helped with their footskills and confidence. Keep up the good work friends!

    We started at NLT with our then 12 year old daughter Lindsay after a great recommendation from a Michigan Hawks coach. Lindsay was always an active, sports crazy kid with softball, tennis, basketball and swimming……until she started playing soccer and fell in love with the sport. All she wanted to do was learn the game and get better as soccer became “her passion”. She wanted to get good very fast and NLT was so good and challenging and it channeled her desire, work ethic and strong desire to have a future with soccer. All of the NLT coaches are her favorite and she loves training there more than any other thing and has been nutured, well coached and inspired by Aaron, Scotty and Renado as highly positive role models and soccer experts. I knew she was hooked when she couldn’t wait to get back from vacation because she missed NLT. It truly has been a phenominal and wonderful experience for her and our whole family as her younger sister Kelly does NLT and soon her other younger sister Stephanie will join the ranks too!

    The entire NLT experience has been great for both my daughters. They love the environment, have improved their soccer skills and their confidence with each and every session. We cannot thank you enough for your passion and dedication to the kids.

    It’s obvious Aaron, Scotty and Renato enjoy the game of soccer and have mastered the art of “teaching” their craft to others. I’ve enrolled my son in other types of training but have never seen the type of results that Next-Level offers. It’s a joy to see your child apply the lessons learned week to week in additon to enjoying the sport they play.

    My daughters have completely enjoyed the training experience from all three trainers! The confidence that you give them to control the ball is second to none. Thank you.

    My daughter is currently in her second session at Next Level Training and we are totally sold. All the trainers are awesome and have a great way of maintaining non-stop action and learning while making it totally fun for the students. As usual with soccer, the proof of effectiveness is determined in on field performance. It’s nice to have other parents echo my biased opinion that my daughter is playing great and is still showing measurable improvement every game.

    When watching my son train with NLT, I love the commitment that he has to do his best. Nothing less is ever tolerated with Aaron, Renato, or Scotty. As hard as they are on him though, they are harder on themselves. They never ask for more than they themselves are willing to do. I love that when the are teaching a skill or a drill when it doesnt go exactly the way it was intended they go back and figure out a better way to teach it. As they do this it is never out of frustration or anger it is with a smile and patience, this to me shows that they love what they do! The way this organization is run is with extreme care of each athlete, and allowing them to take their game to their next level. We are so glad for the priveledge to train with such amazing people!

    Before my highschool daughter started training with Aaron and his staff, she hardly started, only played about half of a game and was usually very frusterated coming off the field. She started training with Aaron once a week about 6 months ago. You could see her slowly improving. We bumped it up and now have her going twice a week and sneek in a private lesson whenever we can. NOW…She starts almost every game, plays majority, if not all of her games, is a leader on the field, but most important, plays with confidence that she never had before training with Aaron, Renato, and Scotty and that, as a parent sitting on the sidelines is…Priceless

    My son Ryan is enrolled in your shooting and finishing class Saturday at 9:00am. This is Ryan’s first class at Next Level Training and I wanted you to know that he truly enjoys it. Every week he talks about what he has learned and cannot wait until the next class! He enjoys the structured training but yet he is able to be aggressive. The timed drills offer game like pressure even though you are in a relaxed learning environment. I can see the difference in his play on the field just from the few classes he has taken! We are proud to be part of the Next Level Training family!

    My daughter has just started her 3rd session and the difference in her level of play for soccer is amazing. It’s given her a confidence she has never had. Which is the next thing the confidence that has developed has carried far beyond soccer. Our daughter has always been shy and lacked confidence in her self. It’s been a combination of things but really I trully believe that this training is a big chunk of that change in her. As many of the parents have said from the beginning of the season to now is unbelievable with her skill and knowledge of the game that she has gained and the only difference with our daughter’s training from before is what she does with you(and the hours in the basement) but she never has had this commitment of hard work until she worked with you guys and again that is a trait that can take you far in life. So thanks for all you guys do! You truly make a difference in kids lives far beyond the world of soccer.

    We have three daughters (U13-U8) who attend with Aaron, Renato and Scotty on a weekly basis. We’ve been with Next Level for over two years now and there isn’t enough space to give a deserving endorsement. Their ability to not only instruct and grow the girl’s skills but improve their confidence and understanding of the game is unmatched. They really take the time to make sure the parents are happy as well as the players being grouped based upon their skill level not just always age. We tend to get a lot of questions about where our girls got their skills and, other than the obvious ‘from their mom and dad’, we recommend Next Level to any and all who ask. I guess the bottom line is that if you want the best long-term success for your son or daughter, you’re a fool for not going to Next Level. Period. Thanks guys!

    At Next Level Training you will experience soccer in a whole different way. I have been playing soccer for over 12 years and have never found better trainers than Aaron, Scotty,and Renato. While pushing you to your potential they will make the drills fun and game like. If you are willing to put the work in, you will see The Next Level.

    What you have at Next Level is a rare commodity. Our two boys have benefited greatly for being exposed to such knowledgeable trainers. It is joy to watch both kids show their ball skills and improved confidence gained through Next Level. It’s hard to extol the virtues of having the kids train with you enough. Thank you!

    I came to Aaron looking for some help for my daughter and her technical skill. Aaron evaluated her, placed her in an appropriate group and she is starting to excel. All of the trainers are exceptional with the kids and they force them outside of their comfort level until they improve. My daughter loves the training and can’t wait for the next session.

    My Daughters Royal Oak team has used Aaron and his crew for two and a half years. We are one of the few privledged teams to train indoor and outdoor with them. They have helped transform our team from an average MYSL team to a top twenty state ranked team. The team now has confidence with the ball creating scoring chances we never had before.

    Our son has had the benefit of Next Level Training for a year now and loves the training he receives! His skill level has reached levels he would not have attained without this level of instruction. The entire staff is great to work with. We are hooked!

    My husband and I fully endorse Next Level Training. Our children have benefitted from a years worth of training with Aaron and the highly skilled trainers. We have enjoyed watching our kids on the field and how their confidence has improved with the ball. Like the poster above, we too have so many parents compliment our kids skills and foot work and want to know where we got it. To be honest, we wanted to keep Aaron’s excellent training a secret, but we just can’t. We really need our own supply of business cards with Next Level’s information on them because I think we are his biggest fans! You guys are the best!
