Calum Scanlon, Birmingham City FC U12’s Academy
I have worked with Carl on various aspects of my game. After discussion, he designed a program that incorporated SAQ drills that always involved the ball in order to also work on my control, passing and finishing. I really enjoy the sessions as Carl focuses very specifically on my technique and uses video analysis to show me how I can improve my technique. I have improved as a result of working hard in his sessions and applying the work to my games with Birmingham City FC U12s Academy
Nimi Ahira, Leicester City FC Ladies Academy
I was at Birmingham City FC Ladies Academy but was released at the end of the season due to my physical attributes not being at the level required for the Club. I was keen to continue playing at Academy level but only had pre season to improve my physical performance and then trial for another Club. My Dad contacted Carl and arranged a speed, agility and strength and conditioning program. As a result of the program, my physical performance improved noticeably. I went to trial with Leicester City FC Ladies Academy and got through their trials and was offered a place in their Academy. These sessions worked for me and enabled me to continue playing at Academy level.
Charlie Woods, West Bromwich Albion U14s trialist
I have been attending camps at Proline coaching for two years now and I really enjoy them. They are great fun and very well organised. The coaching is very professional and all the drills are designed to help all the kids on the camp get even better as players. I have learned loads on the week long camps as they focus on something different every day. Since I have been working with Carl and going to the camps my all round game has improved and I am now currently on trial at West Bromwich Albion FC and hope to progress to Academy football as a result of all the coaching I have received.
Corey Perkins, Coventry Sphinx FC U11’s
I have been attending the coaching camps that Proline coaching hold in the school holidays for about a year now. I really enjoy these camps as they concentrate on things that really help me perform better in matches. We work on different things in the morning, and then have a chance to put them into practice in small sided games. I have also worked on my defending in private sessions. I wanted to work on my positioning, attacking the ball and defending in 1 v 1 situations. The sessions have really helped me and I have been offered trials with Walsall FC and West Bromwich Albion FC in the past year.
Satbinder Heer, Dad of Vinay Heer, Racing Club Warwick U18 & Birmingham Futsal Team
I was recommended to Proline coaching by a friend. I wanted to get my son Vinay training sessions to make him a better player. Vinay’s first session was fantastic, it was the first time Vinay actually felt tested to the limit. Carl’s sessions included agility, speed and strength with technical work. Over the course of the next 6 months Vinay improved in all aspects of his game. Every single session has been different and new and they always challenged Vinay. I highly reccomend Carl in all aspects of football training. His knowledge of the game and training methods are exceptional.
Steve Cook, Dad of Kiel Cooke, Alvis FC U13s
Carl worked with my son for a number of months developing his strength, speed and agility, and technical ball skills. These individual sessions were tailored specifically for him after reviewing his strengths and weaknesses during both training and match play. Carl also produced a program that Kiel was able to do in his own time specific to his position in his team. I believe my son’s all round game improved in a number of areas following the one to one coaching.
Phil Stockton, Dad of Leo Stockton, Burbage FC U13s
We were recommended to Carl to help with the rehabilitation of our son following a lengthy spell on crutches. Carl designed a program that involved mobility, core stability, strength and technical ball work to help Leo. As a coach myself I found the sessions enlightening and picked up some tips to take back to my own Club! Leo really enjoyed the sessions and without question they helped his recovery and footballing performance. Carl is very professional, adaptable, helpful and a very pleasant guy. Highly recommended!
