Development Before Results!

David is one of the best trainers I have ever been to. Every one that goes to him has seen a difference in their game including me. David has changed the way I look at soccer I used to look at it as work and practice always being boring. Now I'm always looking forward to it and wanting to come back. He motivates us to do the best we can do. Now I'm able to take soccer to the next level ever time a take a step on the field. I'm am glad that one of David qualities is to never give up on the kids, I don't think I would be able to play the way I play now. Thank you David for training me and never giving up on me. Thanks David for every thing!

Coach David is a wonderful coach! He's helped me improve in all of my soccer skills and has pushed me to my full limit so I can go as far as I want to go in soccer. He's the first coach that has ever inspired me to try to become an ODP. Player. HE'S THE BEST SOCCER FREAK COACH I EVER HAD!

Forza-Campiones soccer school is a great place to learn to play soccer. The trainer David is strict but nice. He has led some kids to the Olympic development program known as ODP. It is fun at Forza-Campiones soccer school, we watch movies after lunch, and we play pool, play ping-pong, and play Playstation 2 and soccer related games. During training we do soccer drills play scrimmages coordination drills and conditioning drills. I really enjoyed the school because the trainer makes it fun. I learned many things from Forza-Campiones soccer school not just soccer but to respect one another. Thank you for your time in reading this letter.

Dear David, I like your soccer training because you teach us many technical and physical skills. You give us a lot of challenges but you help us accomplish them by helping us step by step. I'm so busy at home and everywhere else that your training is like a break to me. Other girls on my team and I agree that we absolutely positively love your training. I won't be surprised when I become a professional with you as my coach. I've seen you take your other students very far and I know you'll do the same for me. On our practice days I can't wait to get out of school so I can go to practice. Before each practice I'm very excited because each practice is very different and very challenging.

David is not only the best coach I have ever had, he also is an outstanding soccer player. He is solely responsible for making me into a great player. Before I started training with David I was on the verge of being cut from the team. After training with David for only a little while, I was voted team captain and helped lead our team to state that following season. Our team was able to go to state, because of David's focus on one-on-one moves. Any player on our team could beat their opponent one on one, which created numerous scoring opportunities. David's "Don't practice, practice perfect" attitude and ability to teach players helped make each one of our players better. David cared for us more than any other coach because he treated us like family.

You have been a great coach/trainer. I have learned so many things from you. I have become a better player and person since you have been my coach. I am glad that you were my coach for 2 years, they were the best! I strongly recommend for everyone to go to David's training and camps.

David has been a good friend to my brother and me. We met David about a year ago when our high school soccer coach took him to train us. He took a younger girl out there and she humiliated most of my teammates. In the past year I have seen improvement on all aspects of my game. My stamina has really improved dramatically and passion for the game. David has the ability to unlock the potential inside and make you want to go out each time no matter if its just practice and go out and perform at 110 percent. You feel a change in the love of the sport. David is a dedicated man and I feel like me and my brother are lucky to have met him, we had the chance to get coached by him and maybe someday we will play next to him. He never gives up on you. If you really want to raise your game to the next level I would recommend David as your trainer. He knows what he is talking about. Because of him I now feel like I have a chance to one day make it professionally due to the expectations he has on his players. He has trained girls and boys that have made it to the ODP level, Olympic Development Program, so that says a lot about him. My brother and I see David as our older brother. He has the ability to mold you and make you a more disciplined soccer player.

I love going to David Dinh's soccer practice. He has pushed me to my highest potential, in foot speed, coordination, and ball touch, my foot and ball-handling skills are becoming unbelievable. Even though I am the youngest on my select team, my skills have become equal with the others. The quality of training with other trainers that I have had does not compare to what I experience with David. I feel that he gives all of the players that he is surrounded by great love and respect. He is a true "Soccer Freak" and it rubs off on others...like me :)

Coach David is an awesome coach! He is one of the first coaches that made practice fun and educational all at the same time. He brings out the best in me. He pushes me and makes me want to give 110%. He never gives up on me no matter what. He is always encouraging me to keep trying when I don't get it right the first time. He has taught me to never give up! All that he has taught me has helped me become a better field player and most of all a better goalkeeper!

Thanks Coach David, for everything.

Hi, I'm Nicole Gardini and I've been going to Forza Campiones for almost 3 months. In the short time that I've been training with David, I have become a better player, not only physically, but mentally too. David helps me with my specific needs and gives special attention to everyone. David Dinh pushes me to work my hardest and I have improved my game immensely. If you are looking for something extra or you want to improve your soccer game, I strongly suggest you go to David Dinh.

I like Coach David because he makes me better at soccer by teaching me good stuff like how to not let the defenders get the ball. He is good at explaining how to do good soccer stuff. I have a good time learning good soccer moves from him.

I really like working with Coach David because he has a lot of patience when he trains us. He knows a lot about soccer and helps us with our weaknesses. I think he has made me a stronger player mentally and physically. I doubt that I could have ever gotten this far at this age without his help. I hope I get to have Coach David as a coach for a long time because he is an awesome soccer coach!

David Dinh, the best trainer I've ever worked with! David trains hard but always has fun. He will motivate you to do your absolute best and always encourages you to keep trying. David makes sure to compliment you if you do something awesome, and he will always offer great helpful advice if your not quite sure how to do it! David has helped me so much I can't thank him enough. He works on everything you need to improve on, and if you're not lazy and you have the love for soccer, he will never give up on you! So if you want to become the absolute best soccer player you can be, I highly suggest you try training with David. You will see quick improvement in everything you do on the soccer field and you won't be sorry!

I appreciate everything that you did for me and my game, the first time I met you was at Pflugerville high school in some training session and I remember a couple things. One you were very direct. Another thing was that you obviously knew what you were doing, at that time you were by far the best soccer player I had ever seen play, and you still could be the best that I know, and last but not least you told all of us to never call you coach and always call you David. All of these things made me establish a strong sense of respect for you and now, seven years later, I still have that respect. [I wouldn't write this for just anyone... I don't even write for my english teacher] In retrospect you are the best coach/trainer I've had, best coach/trainer in austin, best in Texas, and right behind Rafael Benitez as the best in the world.

Brett Sura

 

Hi, my name is Lindsey De La Rosa, and I have been training with David for about 5 years. Honestly, David is the BEST trainer I have ever had. Every time I train with David I always learn something new. I will always remember the day when I first started doing tennis balls and boxes. I was so slow, while all the other kids were fast. After that training session I made my mom buy me a tennis ball so I could practice. And be as fast as all the other kids. If you went to David Dinh's Forza Campiones training just for one week, in that one week you would already see an improvement. And you WILL see that improvement in the game. If you ever want to pick your game up or get better at technical, coordination, and balance. I highly recommend that you choose David Dinh as your soccer trainer. He could probably improve anything you tell him to. I am LUCKY to have David Dinh as my trainer and my family's closest friend. He always cares about the kids he trains. And he will do whatever it takes to get them to the next level where they need to be. THANK YOU, David for teaching me everything that I know.

I liked how David have his senior players came and demonstrated for us on how to trap the ball. We did the tennis ball and it made me a better player and I thank you for teaching me a lot of good fun stuff.

It was a great camp and I enjoyed practicing with the tennis balls, the passing drills. I can tell that I improved more during this week of camp. I am hoping that I can use these drills to help me on the field. Thank you for the training session this week and I hope that in the future we can go to more camps.

I liked the Forza camp because we worked on our touch and passing skills. The different activities we did were fun, but also helped with our skills and conditioning. I think the camp was GREAT, next time I would like to have more scrimmages.

I liked the Forza camp because I learned a lot of stuff, like passing 3 balls. The tennis balls was hard but David was right, my thighs hurt everyday. David was a good trainer.

Joel Martinez

I thought the camp was very difficult and challenging. I learned a lot of new tricks and got better on my foot work. I also enjoyed the one on one. I enjoyed the tennis ball drill. I think it helped me with my ball control. I think that David and Julian are great trainers and great people.

Thanks for helping me learn and improve more in soccer. I was very happy when my Dad told me about the camp. The tennis balls were a little hard but I got the hang of it. The moves that you taught us on Thursday were very tricky but I will keep practicing until I get it. Once again thanks for your help and please tell Coach Julian thanks also.

David's Forza camps are very hard. The camp is 5 full days. But once it is over, it pays off. I like the tennis balls and the ladder drills that we do. If you see David do the tennis balls, ladder or tricks, you can't even see his feet. He is very smart, too. I bet you, you will never meet another coach like him. Some of the people who get trained by him are already on the National Team. When I first came to Forza, I was not as good as I am right now. I met a lot of good friends here.

My experience at the Forza Summer camp was very good. I learned many new things. I loved the tennis ball sessions because I had never done that or even thought of doing that before. The coaches made sure we were disciplined, which I like. The different drills helped me become a better soccer player. If you want to learn great soccer from top-class coaches, I would definitely attend this camp again.

The Forza camp was fun, sometimes I didn't want to go because I was pushed to my limit. After Wednesday I really did not want to miss a second. I liked the camp because the drills were fun. I like the ladder, speed and agility drills, because I was the fastest. I have never gone that fast through the ladder. I LOVED THE CAMP!

My experience in this camp was one of the most amazing thing that I have been through. I learned so much in so little time. Coach David would work more one technique, while coach Julian would work on the physical training. They were both very talented and intelligent. When I came into this camp, I was excited, but nervous at the same time. Excited because I knew I was going to learn new things, and nervous because I didn't want to look bad. Both coaches kept challenging me, and that only improved my game more and more. My favorite drill was when Coach David was teaching us how to shoot. After my experience at this camp, I now know I have much more to learn about the game.

My experience during the week was great! I learned a lot of things and had lots of fun. You really showed us things that we did not know. I got better on my shots and improved on more things. I really like the drills we did and all the technique and physical training. I know everything we did will pay off in the games and will improve my game. It was a really fun week and thank you for everything. I really want to play with Forza I know it is going to be a great season.

Brandon Rarraza

My experience in this whole week of training was wonderful. I learned how to protect the ball with my body and give more time to myself, and how to lock the player with the ball. David would train us more on technique like how to align your body and how to kick the ball with just one step. And Coach Julian would coach us more on physical like running and more stuff like that. You two are awesome coaches and very experienced. This camp was fun and Awesome. GO FORZA!

Well just wanted to say that this training with you was a blast I had so much fun and wow I learned so much. This experience was fun and educational. Most of things you taught in practice I had never been taught or seen before. The training was also a little difficult at first but we increased the skill and the difficulty of the training got easier. Oh and I forgot to mention the girls they were really talented and real pretty and thanks for bringing them. They were fun and real cool. Julian that trainer is real cool and real talented. Hope to still keep training with you and I am forward to play for Forza.

Thanks for all the hard work you have done for us. I really learned a lot from you. It really helped me a lot. You are a cool coach, even though you still make us do pushups and sit-ups. I liked your drills during all week long. I play defense and I like how to taught us how to protect the ball. So my experience in this whole week was awesome and wonderful. At the first day of practicing I thought you were going to be mean to us, but nah you are a very cool, and awesome coach. Both Julian and David are so talented in soccer. They have a lot of technique.

Juan Juarez

What I think about the camp was that I had fun these 5 days. I learned a lot by, coach David and coach Julian. David and Julian were really talented. They taught us how to pass, dribble, juggle, shot hard, and listen. It was hard work, but still I had fun.

Juan Sebastian Santamaria
10 years old

I really had fun at the Forza camp. I learned new things like “Locking in” on defense, to look at the players foot then ball then back at the foot when passing. I learned to “Snap a Picture in your head”. The most fun was learning to train with the tennis ball. I also like that Coach David is very demanding and uses the word “unacceptable” when teaching a new skill. I also like that we were focused entirely on soccer but had fun without a bunch of baby sitting or running like other camps. Thanks for coming to San Antonio.

Kristian Compton

David, my experience here at the Forza training camp was awesome. I had a blast here at the camp. I learned a lot of things that would not even think I would get to learn. One of the things I learned well was learning how to touch the ball the correct way, instead of the incorrect way that I was doing it (getting my foot locked) you taught me the correct way and with a little practice I will get it. You also taught me a lot if stuff, I can't even think about. Julian also helped me out with the physical things I needed like conditioning. Both you and Julian though me a lot.

Luis Sanchez

I just wanted to thank you, David and Julian, for training me and all the other kids. I learned a lot of things from the both of the coaches. I learned so much in just 5 days, like bouncing the tennis balls with our feet, and passing the ball hard, slow, low and high, pin point accuracy. The best thing I like from the whole five days was playing games. Next year I will like the come back for I could learn other different stuff.

Miguel Sanchez

I like the soccer clinic because I learned a lot of things that before I did not know. I also like it because you are energetic. This soccer clinic is the best one I have ever attended. I would love to keep learning from you David.

David thank you for helping me in learning soccer and hopefully next year you'll come to help me learn more because I am anxious to learn more technical skills, fake-out moves, tactical strategies for defense. I like way you were organized to control lots of kids. If you know of any other course for my age I would appreciate it if you would let me know via e-mail or normal.

Arturo Gaspar Mascarua Martinez

The thing that I liked the most out of this clinic is that it helps me and teaches me lots of technical skills. And even though they get after me I know that its because I did something wrong. Even though its something very strict I dont regret anything because it is all about my attitude and discipline towards the strictness. I liked one of the techniques and although it is hard I try and and know I've mastered it.... if I dont have discipline I dont have anything...

I had a lot of fun and I have learned a lot from you. Some of the stuff is hard but I will never quit. I will keep on trying. You are a very good teacher at soccer. My dream is to be an awesome soccer player.

Since I have been training with Forza, I have gained more confidence then I have been with my real team. Also I have gained more soccer intelligence, my skills, tactics, and my speed. I love all the drills you had us do no matter how hard it was. Thank you for helping me, I would have never have learned about the tennis ball, how to balance or how to defend properly if I was with my other coach. I hope I can train with you again so I can keep getting better and better. I will always remember all the drills you taught us.

David, the camp was really cool! I improved a lot. I also like the 7-vs-7. I also like when we did the tennis ball workout, I learned how to tap faster on the tennis balls. Also when we went to Lins Grand Buffet. Whe you were teaching us how to defend that will make me think every time I stepped up to defend against my opponent. Thank you I hope I will see you again.

PS. You are COOL!

Thanks to Coach Galindo I met David. I loved the Forza Soccer Camp because I learned more about soccer with David. I learned how to kick a tennis ball with David and Coach Galindo. Thanks to David and Galindo, I learned what a soccer camp is about. This is my first time I attended a soccer camp. I like the soccer camp because you learn a lot about the game. I wish Forza will running another camp soon. Thank you David for the FUN I had.

I really enjoyed the Forza soccer camp at San Luis Rey Church. I also enjoyed practicing what I learned. The staff was very helpful when I asked to show me some of the different ways to move, kick and stop the ball. I also learned to balance the ball on my foot, with my chest and off my knee; also to bounce it with my head. The games that we played to show what we learned were very interesting and exciting. I scored a goal in one of the practice games we played. This proves that the soccer camp was a great success. I wish I could attend another Forza camp in the future.

My experience was that in the Forza camp. I had fun and learned lots of new ways to control the ball. All though he is very serious sometimes but he was a very good coach. But the best part was that I played 3-vs-3. I wish he could come again to train us. Thank you Coach David!

Lo que me gusto del camp fue:

Que es algo diferente, algo que no practicaba y que no es muy comun, fue muy divertido y me gusto mucho. El entrenador David es muy divertido y muchas ideas y te ayuda a corregir tus errores tambien lo que me gusto fue que , aparte conocer mas sobre el futbol, fue conocer nuevos amigos y amigas y jugar con ellos, lo que tenemos en comun jugar futbol, y conocerios quiero volver a intentarlo.

El camp es muy bueno y aprendi mucho, algo que en Mexico no hacia. Aprendi que el futbol no solo es jugar y patiar la pelota, si no, tambien la technical, y que si quieres vendirse, que sino puedes tinenes que volver a intentarlo hasta lograrlo.

El cosa que me gusto fue que te tienes que adaptar como puedas sin importer si hablas otro idiona a algo asi y lo digo por mi. Tienes que tener disiplina para lograrlo lo que quieres, cada acto tiene su consecuencia otra cosa es que tienes que trabajar muy duro para lograr lo que quieras.

En el camp todos fueron muy amables y saben que hacer y por ultimo fue que mejore un poco de lo que se del futbol, y se ahora que que necesito practicar mas. Entrenadores: Gracias por todo y sdpero verios despues pronto.

I really enjoyed the camp. I had a lot of fun but at the same time I learned so many things. I can not wait for another Forza camp. Every time I go to one of your camp my soccer skills improve. The activities we do are very helpful and fun. It was an honor for my family and me to be your host, for you to stay at our house for the week. Thanks

Dear David,

You are cool. I learned a lot from your lesions. I like it a lot and I hope to see you again and learn more from you. If I become famous one day and become the best soccer player in the world thanks to you and I will remember you. Thank you for a great week and I will try to behave to visit you in Austin for more training sessions. Thanks

Jorge Zuniga

The experience that I had these past four days is truly amazing. I have learned so many new drills, and have enjoyed each and every one of them. But the one thing that I really like about the camp was that Coach David pushes you to your limit, and makes you give 110% in all the exercises. In all the 5 years I have been playing soccer, I never had to work so hard to make sure every little detail was correct.

Another thing that has changed me as a player is “the attitude of a winner” as Coach David calls it. Is that it might not happen as well as you expect the first try but with perseverance you can make it happen. If I would have the opportunity to go to Forza I would because it is an unexplainable experience in the training sessions. Yeah and David is COOL!

Karina Garcia

What I like about the camp was that I made a lot of new friends. I learned many new things that I did not do with my own team at Liberty Soccer Club. I also liked about the camp were the coaches David and Coach Galindo, because they are really fun and funny. I mostly like when I was playing 3-vs-3 and 7-vs-7 because we applied what we learned in the camp. We would do a lot of running, passing, shooting, and faking people out.

This is what I had to say about my Coach David and Forza. He is nice and cool. For my first day, I learned more than one month. Those technical drills make you feel like if you running on air. For me, Forza is awesome and David requires a lot of discipline and me and my family like it a lot. My dad was wow this is a real coach; he does not get good kids. No sir, he teaches them from new to all stars. One of these days I want to be a part of the Forza team, Forza Champions. One more thing, when you practice with Forza, don't forget cleats, shin-guards, water and shirts tuck in.

Miguel Ortega

I had fun the whole week, but the training was pretty hard but I liked it a lot. I hope we learn more new stuff tomorrow. And I know that we are going to work even harder. You are a great coach.

I liked the Forza Campiones soccer camp because I am learning and it teaches me a lot. I want to thank you David for teaching me a lot about the game that I need to know. I also wan to thank the four coaches: Brooke, Chepo, Hugo and Edgar.Thank you for helping me to become a better player.

PS. Next time I go, I am taking all of my OREO Cookies, Just Kidding.

Dear Coach David,

I have learned a lot for the past 2 days in Laredo. The training is different and harder from the San Antonio camp, but it is still fun! I improved on the trampoline and tennis balls activities since the first time I have done it in Austin. I am ready to try other activities as well. I should focus on my goals in order to achieve my dreams of becoming a professional one day. I have a lot to learn and I am looking forward to it!

Thank you,
