Hey everyone, I’m Adam and I'm a soccer player, coach, trainer, and referee.

I've been playing soccer since I was 5 years old and training and refereeing since I was 14. For 3 summers, I worked for 4 weeks as a trainer/coach for youth soccer players aged 5-15. After spending my first summer learning the ropes from the more experienced trainers, I was given my own group of 5-7 year olds to train for a week in my second summer. I had such a blast with the kids, and the parents were so thankful that they could spend some time on the beaches of the south shore of Long Island. Being able to help young players learn to play and love the beautiful game helped inspire me to create my site, SoccerTrainingStuff.com.

Something I took for granted at the time was how much soccer training equipment and supplies are needed in order to train a team. You need everything, from soccer goals to balls, cones, and practice jerseys. I've created this site to help other trainers and coaches out there find the right equipment for their teams.

If you ever have or need any advice or feedback on training equipment, techniques, or resources, please do let me know. I’m always open to feedback in any form and want to help any way I can. Visit the site and leave a comment on any of the pages or posts, as I’m always updating it with new equipment, supplies, and information that I hope you will find interesting.

All the best in your training, and may your teams find success.
