I have coached soccer for 20+ years for U5-U17 boys, and U8-U16 girls in Carrollton-Farmers Branch, and Plano leagues, for recreation and select teams. As a life-long player and coach I have a passion for the sport and enjoy sharing the fundamentals, skills and knowledge players need to be successful on and off the field.
Sharing the sport that gave me so much. Life long friends, confidence, physical ability, and the knowledge and skills to be a leader on and off the field.
Coach Dan is simply amazing! He is extremely patient and dedicated to the game. I have benefited so much from training with Coach Dan in these past few weeks. He has helped me not only in the areas that I struggle but also in areas where I already feel confident. Also along with improved skills, my soccer IQ has definitely bettered since working with Coach Dan. I couldn’t ask for anyone better!
Coach Dan has been vital to my daughter’s success in soccer. I originally signed her up for private lessons because she was doubting herself and unsure if she wanted to continue playing. After just two short practices her confidence was back. Now we’re two months in and her skills have improved greatly as well. She feels motivated, confident and skilled enough for upcoming high school try outs. We owe this to Coach Dan!! Highly recommend Coach Dan and we appreciate all of his patience, skills/drills and time he has spent with my daughter to up her game. :)

She enjoys training with him very much and have learned so much about the game and her position, her stills and confident has improved because of his lesson. He does a great job. Thank coach.
My name is Mia Martinez and I am honored to be writing this Letter of Recommendation for my former coach, Daniel Hasty. Coach Dan has had the biggest impact of my soccer life than any of the other coaches I have trained with combined. I met coach Dan and trained with him when I was 9 years old until I was 15 years old. Throughout my experience with him I gained so much valuable soccer skills as the years went by, and my love for the game grew. Coach Dan is by far not like other coaches. Usually, when a coach noticed his players are not in the game or even being slaughtered by the other team, they yell and scream at their team to get back in the game. Now with coach Dan, that never happens. Every game, win or lose, he sits on the bench and evaluates. He evaluates how the other team is preforming and how every individual player on his team is preforming. He waits until all his players are together during a water break or halftime to tell us what he sees. He gives his players a different point of view when it comes to them on the field to find the best strategy to use for the situation. Each training session was an exciting and unique practice to focus on all the different kinds of skill sets mentally and physically. When I began training with him, I only knew one position, forward and was a mediocre player. As the sessions got more intense over time, I developed to know how to adapt to any position on the field and even making it to the Olympic Development Program of North Texas when I was 13. I ended up standing out among my teammates due to the different techniques I have previously learned from Dan. My time with Dan was well worth every minute and made soccer more competitive and fun. Coach Dan is one of the most kind-hearted people I know and to this day cannot remember ever seeing him without a smile. I would recommend Coach Dan to any player who has a great love for the sport, and who has the drive to become a better player. I genuinely believe that if any player has the motivation to be better, Daniel Hasty will make it happen.
We will warm-up and stretch. Then start with agility and foot work. Fundamentals is key at any level of soccer. We will work on ball control, dribble, trap, first touches, passing, shooting. I will teach the the proper way to do these things. Once the student has developed and has a grasp on these, we will work on more complex things such as one-on-one attacking and defending. Jukes, fakes, and decision making.
20+ years of coaching soccer at the recreational and select/club level from U5-U17, boys and girls. 30 years of training and playing soccer on all levels, including being called up for tryouts for the Dallas Burn Pro Team.
