I have been working with Brandon for 7 months and have noticed an increase in my confidence. My footwork has improved significantly and the accuracy of my distribution has improved substantially. Brandon is patient, professional, and attentive to how I perform in practice and provides real-time feedback to help me correct my mistakes. I feel lucky that he is a resource for me.

Prime Focus Goalkeeping is an amazing place to learn how to be a better goalkeeper. Not only is the environment extremely fun to be in, but it balances intense training and instruction with that  fun. They do an excellent job focusing on the basics of goalkeeping for people just getting started and also make sure to push those already experienced in the goalkeeping world. I wouldn't choose any other place to train.

Since I've been training with Brandon, I've noticed significant changes in my mental game in training. My ability to focus on and fine tune details really improved. Working with Brandon helps me not only be a better athlete, but a better person as well. He's exactly what you look for in a keeper coach!
