  • Christine Stelcer

    Alexander was an excellent coach to my daughter. He helped get her back in shape and prepare for upcoming soccer tryouts for her soccer team. He was very professional and caring. I highly recommend Alexander.

  • Daniel Connolly

    My son (8) and daughter (9) loved training with Coach Alex. He really engaged and challenged them as they worked on building a strong foundation so they can continue their development. Coach Alex worked with them on many aspects of the sport and they look forward future training sessions.

  • Marc Palmieri

    The coach who is Soccer Rockets is top flight. I know no other private coach who gives the kind of thorough, expert training to his students, not to mention the total commitment to their improvement he demonstrates. While he is a former Division I, Olympic level athlete who is also a dad and teacher, he is in the kind of physical shape where he is able to fully demonstrate what he is teaching, which is a very important asset. As a long time high school coach and Division I athlete myself, I cannot recommend him enough.
