My son started training with Level Up in order to come back from an injury and work on improving his goalie skills in general. It has been four weeks and I can already see that his game has improved. My son calls his hour with Level Up the "power hour", because he works so hard in that one hour. They really focus on many different aspects of fine tuning and tweaking his game. We are so happy to have found a skilled coach our son enjoys working with.
Last spring my son sustained a season ending injury. He was out for the season and most of the summer for a total of 16 lacrosse free weeks. I had emailed Level Up about trying to get the boy back on the field now that he had been cleared by all doctors. They eased Cameron back on the field and back into the goal. Cameron got his confidence back quickly with the help and support of Level Up. Every week I see many improvements in Cameron's stepping and goalie mentality. Cameron is back to himself and even farther along in his skills as a goalie and we are very happy to have Level Up around and thankful for all their hard work with Cam. I would fully recommend Level Up for all lacrosse training needs. They are very professional and have a lot of experience with all ages and positions. Thanks again Level Up!
Coach Hoppe is phenomenal! His level of professionalism and dedication are unmatched. He has worked with my son 1:1 as well as coaching his team this season and we have seen unparalleled improvement both in his individual skills and confidence as well as the entire team's performance. The 1:1 sessions have proven to be invaluable. They are completely individualized and meet the player where he/she is at regardless of skill set. This type of coaching just can't happen in a team setting and we have seen the difference the 1:1 training has brought my son both on and off the field. Coach Hoppe is amazing with the kids and is invested in teaching them to not only be the best they can be, but to learn and grow from their experiences. He has instilled a passion for improvement in my son and a desire to continue growing and learning as a player. My son loves training with Coach Hoppe and we couldn't be happier with our experience at Level Up Lacrosse!
My son has been working with Level Up lacrosse for 2 months and he really enjoys the sessions. We have seen improvement and our son is receiving great off season 1:1 coaching that just doesn't happen in a team practice. Coach works on what my son needs to bring his game to the next level. There is not a moment wasted. As a parent I love the personal web page with videos of my son and charts of his monthly timed drills.
Coach Hoppe is a great instructor and coach. He is very professional in interacting with the parents and makes the intense 1:1 sessions fun for the kids. His coaching is specific and “game situation” oriented. We have Gary with our 12 year old son who is an elite club player, and the improvement is amazing. His off hand development has been fantastic, refined his north/south dodges, added other dodges and approaches to the goal, especially from the X. The improvements are significant. We also have Gary working with our 10 year old daughter, who is an entry level player. She is a goalie, but we also have Gary working on her traditional field skills as well. Her confidence and goalie IQ are both up dramatically in just 4 sessions. Her techniques and fundamentals in the field are becoming rock solid. We were just talking about how fortunate we feel to have Coach Hoppe come into our life to supplement team practices, with focused and fun 1:1 training. We highly recommend Coach Hoppe!
My nine year old son just completed a four week training session with Level Up to get him ready for the upcoming season. They did a great job reinforcing the fundamentals with him but did an exceptional job in teaching him how to use his weak hand, something my son has not done the last two years. Our trainer is an excellent coach and knew how to structure the training sessions around my son's strengths and weaknesses. I will definitely be signing up with him again and would recommend Level Up without any hesitation.
We have been using the services of Level Up now for one month for goalie specific 1on1 work. We have already seen large strides of improvement with our son. Gary works great with our boy and he looks forward to his weekly session. I think the best part of the service is not just telling you that you are getting better, he shows you by measuring specific timed drills "wall ball" etc with measured levels to achieve and strive for monthly. I know Level Up will help bring out the best our boy is capable of.
We found a great instructor and coach! Our son has really developed his weak hand development, fundamental pass/catch, dodges and approaches to the goal. Improvements are significant within just a month with LevelUp. We also appreciate the professionalism provided in his evaluations and presentations of skill level and progress. Glad to have you in town!!
I can't say enough about Gary at Level Up Lacrosse! We were introduced to him via a travel team that my son plays on. That was the best season my son ever had in terms of improvement. Most coaches don't provide much training. Gary was brought in by this travel team and my son received a lot of attention that year. His level of play went through the roof - along with his confidence level. We recently signed on to do some 1-1 training sessions for him and after just 2 sessions with Gary, my son had one of his best performances this past weekend. I attribute it to Gary's ability to train and work with him. His program is phenomenal and the video breakdown you will receive is great for your son/daughter to use and really understand what they are being taught. I am looking forward to seeing how my son can grow in his position with Gary's assistance and coaching.
We have seen incredible improvement in every aspect of our son's game since he started weekly coaching sessions with Level-Up Lacrosse. Our trainer is very positive and incredibly professional. He conducts periodic performance evaluations using a detailed skills matrix that provides quantifiable evidence of improvement, as if seeing Brennan's performance in games isn't enough. :-). Brennan has shown between 20%- 75% improvement in all areas over just the last 7 months. His confidence is way up and he is enjoying the game more. In addition, his coaching isn't limited to the one hour session. The detailed video feedback he also provides is incredibly helpful in showing our son what he is doing well, and exactly what to do differently. You've got a GREAT, well run, effective program!! We are so glad to have found you!!
