Development Before Results!

What has Forza done for me? Simply put, Forza has done everything for me. I started soccer at almost 10 years old. Which is a lot later than most players, and if it wasn’t for Forza, and more specifically for Coach David Dinh, I would have never been able to close that gap in skill level between me and everyone else. Coach David was one of the first coaches I ever had. I had only playing for a little over a year before I was introduced to him. As an outsider you could say his training was unorthodox. The drills we did were things I’ve never seen before, things to this day I’ve only ever seen done by him and those close to him. He broke down soccer to its simplest form, and once we learned the basics he opened our eyes to the beauty that could come from the simplest of these skills. This is what drew me in. This is what makes Forza special.

You can go many places and they will teach you all the complexities of soccer. Only at Forza have I seen someone focus so much on the basics of soccer, basic skills that everyone says they have mastered when really they are nowhere near mastery. I’ve played with great players who people rave about and when you really watch them they are still missing fundamental aspects of their game that could take them that much further. His focus on touch, control, & vision are things that I see no other coach teach or at least to the degree Coach David does. Yet that isn’t the best part of Forza, no, the best part of Forza is what it brings out of you. When people ask me about Forza or I ask them about their experience it always seems to bring out the same response. It’s not for everyone. I hold this to be the truest of statements. Forza, if you allow it, will bring out a passion in you like nothing else can. The environment you are surrounded by at Forza is remarkable. It’s a place where people truly love the sport, they love every aspect of it, the work it takes to create such a beautiful game and the wonderful moments that can come from it. Forza, and Coach David made me fall in love with soccer, I liked the sport before Forza, but it wasn’t until I got to Forza that I truly fell in love with the game. I began to appreciate everything about it, a player’s first touch, the way they passed the ball, the simple look over their shoulder when they received a pass, it was all so magical how all seemed to come together, and create this incredible flow of play that I had never even noticed. Now you may think I’m exaggerating, but I promise you, if you allow it, Forza can change the way you view soccer. If you buy in to the program and just give everything you have you can be successful.

My passion for this game stems from Forza and as I go into my final semester of college that passion has grown and I’ve known for a while that I want to coach and continue to be a part of this game. So when people ask me what does Forza mean to me? It means my life, it means my future, it means my career. The path and training in Forza isn’t always easy, but if it was then everyone would join. It’s meant to be hard, it’s meant to break you down and then build you back up, that is the only way we get stronger. I will always vouch for Coach David and Forza and if you have the opportunity to go train here, take full advantage of it, because it can open your eyes to a whole new game. Thank you Coach David for everything you’ve done for me. In part I would not be the person and I would definitely not be the player I am today without you.
