Shaunda Cockayne - Arizona
Conner has been playing soccer since he was three. Due to job changes, their family moved around the country. Soccer is how he made connections with others.

Prior to My Soccer Mentor Conner’s confidence was decreasing. With each move Conner questioned his skill level. Then the pandemic hit and Connor lost his main connection with others.

Shaunda was searching for avenues to help her son and came across My Soccer Mentor on Facebook. She wanted Conner to have an outlet where he could learn and grow in new ways.

The first few weeks in the program Conner was “All In” then he slowed down a little because he still wasn’t able to play due to the pandemic.

Once Conner was able to get on the pitch and start playing the difference in his mindset was unbelievable! He was using multiple tools from the MSM program such as affirmations and his alter ego to prepare himself for each game.

The “Ah ha!” moment came when Conner’s Soccer Residency teammates chose their captain...Connor was chosen! Now mind you he does not live at the Residency, he travels from his home nearby. When Conner inquired why his teammates had chosen him it turned out to be his alter ego...the tools he was implementing were making a huge impact!
Michele - New York
“What do you want to accomplish? Why do you play?”

The past few years have been a rollercoaster of emotions for Skye. From changing teams due to family moves, obstacles the pandemic brought, severe injuries, and obstacles with her coaches.

After the first few weeks in My Soccer Mentor’s program, Skye told her mom she wanted to contact a coach and inquire about trying out for the team. Without any set expectations going into the tryout, Skye was immediately offered a spot on the team following her session. Since then Skye has attended College ID camps and received follow-up contact from prominent programs wanting her to visit their campus.

Skye went from not wanting to play soccer anymore to 4 viable college options.

If your player is experiencing these same struggles - Michele, Skye’s mother, recommends calling My Soccer Mentor! In addition to calling MSM, Michele encourages parents to start asking questions: What’s wrong with the environment? Is the team not the right fit? Is the Coach not the right fit? Is it because the player is not putting in the work? Etc.

We’re excited to continue working with Skye and look forward to watching her progress!
Michael - Colorado
Michael Jr. started playing competitive soccer in a Junior Academy for a club in Colorado Springs, Co.
Overtime, Michael noticed his son showing a loss in confidence and more inconsistencies. At that point, Michael tried helping his son work through his obstacles - he couldn’t do it on his own...the advice was not effective coming from dad.

As soon as Michael came across My Soccer Mentor and started watching videos - he knew this was the program that would help his son.

A few months into the program, Michael Jr. has been demonstrating significant progress. He changed his mindset, took an opportunity to play with a different team, and helped lead that team to their first middle school league championship!

Michael contributes this positive change in Michael Jr’s mindset and ultimately his success to My Soccer Mentor! From the tools MSM has taught Michael Jr over the weeks - to Michael Jr applying those tools to soccer, MSM has been instrumental in the process.

The biggest thing that Michael Jr has learned is to use his mistakes as a learning tool. Instead of thinking he is letting people down, Michael now looks at mistakes as a learning situation to improve himself!

Michael Jr - We’re excited to be on this path with you! Always learning and progressing!

Juan & Cheyenne - Maryland
Marcellus has been working with My Soccer Mentor for a while and was ready to take his development to the next level. He needed something more than his soccer club was offering. That’s when Juan and Cheyenne, Marcellus’ parents, spoke with Coach Lucas about additional developmental support from MSM.

4-5 weeks into the Professional Preparation Program, Marcellus has multiple faucets in place: daily action items, measurable goals, individual training plan, nutrition plan, and direct contact with his mentors - all in the initial phase of PPP.

Since beginning PPP, Marcellus’ assertiveness, confidence, leadership, and skillset have all drastically improved.
Juan compares our Professional Preparation Program to Barca Residency and IMG - other than not being a resident program, With My Soccer Mentor’s PPP you get all the value for a fraction of the price. Cheyenne also notes players and families are able to create their own immersion program in their home.

Marcellus - we have an exciting path ahead!
Aarav & Samhita - Virginia
Today we have the privilege to hear from one of our State Cup winners and his mother! Prior to joining My Soccer Mentor, Samhita felt confidence was missing in Aarav’s game. Through her search for ways to help her son, Samhita came across MSM. 
David & Lukas - United Kingdom
Prior to joining MSM Lukas was focused more on how he could stop the other team from scoring and playing safe instead of his production on the pitch. He had also moved up an age division and lost confidence.

Since joining MSM, Lukas is sharper, taking more risks, and much more confident. Lukas is taking players on now and has also become faster. Most importantly...Lukas is playing with a smile on his face!

Focusing on his vision statement, positive affirmations, and his alter ego truly helped Lukas’ transformation. Lukas encourages others to continue the momentum with positive affirmations.

David, Lukas’ father, says when you see the smile on your player’s face week in and week out, it’s worth every penny spent!

Lukas, we are excited to follow your progression!  
Addison - Ohio
Addison has been with her current club for 3 years and had been performing very well until suffering a concussion while on the pitch. After recovering from her injury Addison played timid and scared, she was afraid of getting hurt again. This resulted in Addison’s confidence lowering and it negatively affected her performance on the field.

While searching for methods to help increase Addison’s confidence, her parents discovered My Soccer Mentor. Addison watched many Student Success Stories before deciding to join. This was an incredible decision because after going through the MSM program Addison quickly saw changes. She admits some of the tools provided seemed a little weird at first but Addison’s mentality received a big boost! Addison credits the visualizations and alter ego tools for her increased confidence. Now, it’s no longer a question if she will show up to practice or a game with confidence - it’s a given!
Addison’s advice for other players is to give consistency, “Consistency matters! It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, visualizations will help you!” Continuing to build on the depth of her visualizations and remain consistent were key to Addison’s success!

We are excited to see how you continue to progress - the sky's the limit!
Michelle & Ilayda - North Carolina
Before joining My Soccer Mentor Ilayda experienced mental obstacles after her previous club merged with her current club. Ilayda had always been the top player on her team. After the club merger Ilayda found herself being shuffled to different positions on the field - often multiple positions in the same game. This caused confusion and frustration. Ilayda was continuously bullied by her teammates to the point she wanted to quit soccer, a sport she loved! Michelle, Ilayda’s mother, tried everything to help her daughter and in doing so came across My Soccer Mentor. Both Michelle and Ilayda were hesitant as first but quickly noticed the transformation happening with Ilayda! Her consistency was increasing, she wasn’t second guessing herself, and most importantly - Ilayda was having FUN again!
Ilayda noticed a change immediately. She was excited for practices and stopped just going through the motions. Her confidence was through the roof and she enjoyed taking risks. The best part was when Ilayda faces the girls who bullied her she is no longer afraid of what they might say to her. Ilayda is confident in her abilities!
Jeff & Lucas - California
Prior to My Soccer Mentor Lucas was discouraged with his relationship with his soccer coach, consistently being yelled at. He had lost all confidence and was also losing his love for the game. Through the MSM Confidence Construction course Lucas was able to change the way he viewed his soccer environment. Through focusing more on his personal growth without the influence of negative outside factors, Lucas was able to improve his performance on the soccer field. His love of soccer was reignited!

My Soccer Mentor has positively affected what Lucas’ desires to accomplish in life. It has also helped him become a leader both on and off the field. What’s more, Lucas has passed some of his new wisdom to his sister!

Teresa Deuter - South Dakota

In this success story interview, Coach Lucas speaks with Teresa about her son and how MSM has immensely improved his game.
Before Denon started working with Coach Lucas with My Soccer Mentor, he was an excellent player but felt as if he had to play at only a certain level. Denon and his mother both knew that he is an exceptional player but something about his mental game had to change. Within the 6 weeks of the program, Teresa saw a dramatic change in his performance. But, not only did she see it in his playing, but she also saw a change in his everyday life. 

Tim Barth - Washington State

In this success story interview, Coach Lucas speaks with Tim about his daughter and how MSM immensely improved her game.
Prior to starting the program, Lexi was struggling with mental strength. She would often find herself hesitant, afraid to challenge people, and not wanting to be physical in the game. She would freeze on the field when she had the ball and when she was challenged by an opposing player, she would pass the ball. She even was hesitant to take a shot on goal. Lexi did not understand why she was playing this way. After completing the program, Lexi’s performance is like night and day. In her breakthrough game, she had 4 goals and 2 assists! She is now aggressive and wants the ball to take a shot. With her newfound confidence, she overcame her own mental obstacles. In each game, she works on at least one skill to better herself. With everything she learned in the program, she continues to carry with her and continues to play at her highest level. 

Massimo - Maryland

Mateo started playing soccer at a very young age, his family loves soccer so he always had this mindset to play soccer. He started playing travel soccer at age 12. Massimo noticed Mateo had several mental blocks in his game. He had the skills to play really well, but lacked that mental push. One of his mental blocks was not wanting to make mistakes, but got too much in his head, thus making those mistakes. By trying to avoid making mistakes, he would get the ball, then pass it on almost instantly. After completing the program, his breakthrough performance was at a showcase. Massimo can see the increase in confidence Mateo had on the field. Mateo was no longer lost on the field and had control of himself with and without the ball in possession. He handled making mistakes in a better manner. Mateo was handed opportunities to receive scholarships to play for D1 colleges and at a university in England. He can now take his newfound confidence and run with it and play his very best. 

Marla - Texas

Peyton takes soccer seriously and has big goals. But, he became easily discouraged and frustrated in a challenging setting. This would then cause him to not play his best that game. After getting beat, he could not shake it off and he carried it with him for the games after. So, overall, he got into his head too much and his confidence continued to lower when plays did not go as planned. Marla noticed this for the past couple of years. She knew Peyton needed help building his mental strength. After hurdling over his mental obstacles, he began to play more freely and personally performed better. This just started 3 weeks into the program. With the weeks after, he continued to self reflect and make tweaks to his game. He now has the mindset of applying his newfound confidence using his skills set to ensure he becomes the player he wants to be.

Janet Rosenhoffer

Janet shares her story on how her 11 year old son went from the bottom team to scoring multiple hat tricks on the top team. Jake took the My Soccer Mentor Program by storm. His results are not typical, but this is a perfect example of what is possible when a player commits to developing the right mindset. 

Allison Perrin - Arizona

Before starting the program and working with Coach Lucas, Samuel lacked confidence on the field. His coaches would often pull him for a break minutes into a game. Samuel had an amazing breakthrough between weeks 4 and 5, of the 6 week course. His mother watched him become a beast on the field for a tournament he had. He can now play through a whole game and not become mentally weak. Not only did he change his mindset on the field, but he is now getting noticed at school for a becoming such a confident and caring young man.
We are extremely excited to what Samuel will do next!
Written Testimonials
"Hey Lucas!
This was a great phone call. She is talking so well with you. She is normally pretty shy and very hard to get to talk but with you, she opens right up. She said, “I really like that guy, he knows his stuff”. I think we are starting to see some changes. Her goal last week was a monster. She received the ball in the back field, did a quick fake and beat the defender and dribbled for about 40 yards of space and took a monster right foot from just outside the 18, over the keeper and in the side net."
        -Week 2: Dion Lynn for 13-yr-old, Mika Lynn. North Carolina

"The confidence and maturity difference that I’ve seen over the last 6 weeks is night and day."
         -Jami Ashe for 10-yr-old, Bella Ashe . Tennessee

"5 goals in a 7 nothing game. My wife noticed his improved foot skills already."
        -Week 2: Juan Dominguez on his 7-year son. Severna Park, Maryland

"Coach Luke went above and beyond to train me not only as a player but also a friend. His passion and determination not only to me but also our team was inspiring and humbling. Overall as a coach, I think Luke's fiery personality matched with his technical ability as a player is what makes him a great coach. He knows the game fully, he knows what it takes to get to peak performance ability, and most importantly, he knows how to push his players in order for them to reach that next milestone."
         -22-year-old Player, Saint Xavier University. Chicago, IL
"Working with Coach Zeiler had an exceptional impact on me. Through his use of dynamic strength, conditioning, and technical drills he helped me tremendously. His drills were always innovative and constantly forced me to improve my game. He stressed and instilled in me a strong self-belief as a sense of inner motivation. His training not only helped me improve on the field, but off it as well - and for that I will always be thankful."
        -23-year-old Player, Saint Xavier University. Chicago, IL
I have had the privilege of working with Lucas for the last two years of my collegiate career. Not only has he helped me get back into the game of soccer after my ACL surgery in 2014, but he also helped remind me how I first came to love the game. His skill as a coach and mentor is impeccable. His hard work and dedication to the sport and players have not gone unrecognized. I have seen him work with players as a team and individually, gaining respect from each player, including myself. With me, he took the time to figure out my strengths and weaknesses on the field and would not stop working until I was completely satisfied with the player I wanted to become. For this, I owe him the remainder of my career as a soccer player.
