“We have experience and expertise that we are finding players and parents are wanting more and more of here in the USA. We are keen to share that expertise and make it available across the USA through our camps, development programs and future excellence programs. Our long term strategy to player development and previous success in developing players in Europe allows us to help clubs put plans in place for their players of the future. It simply comes down to putting 'the best coaches' out on the fields with the kids, with a professionally structured plan to develop the children's abilities".

Along with coaching travel and recreational players at clubs up and down the Treasure Coast, Massive Soccer Coaching has begun to introduce innovative soccer programs including Beach Soccer, Indoor Futsal, beginners Saturday Soccer and Friday Night Skill Development Centre's, all to help the development of players within the game.

"Our programs are diversifying now that we are becoming established and in demand from more and more players and parents as they get to work with us. We are now building programs that not only provide diverse learning opportunities for the children but that also engage families and the local community. Our Beach Soccer Program, launched in Vero Beach, has provided an alternative way for the children to enjoy the game of soccer whilst at the same time getting lots of exercise in a fun environment".

The Vero Beach Soccer Program has been recognised and and supported by Lee Legler, President of Legler Orthodontists, who have sponsored the event. "Vero Beach Soccer is a great way in which we can support the children in our local community, in a fun healthy way. Seeing the kids running round on the beach having fun and learning on a Saturday morning is fantastic and something we were very keen to support."

Partnership working using soccer as a medium to bring people together is something Fraser is well experienced in following his days at English Premier League outfit, West Bromwich Albion.

Businesses are keen to support their communities - their support creates more opportunities for children to develop - its a win-win situation all round for everyone involved".
