What our clients say about us...

ASC is a great tool for me for the designing and storing of my session plans. Having my session library easily available on my iPad makes viewing and creating sessions on the move so easy, and ASC is a great help for my general day-to-day preparation.

Steve Bould
Assistant Manager Arsenal FC

ASC are a great partner, they have innovated the product frequently and the level of customer support is really exceptional and appreciated. In my role as Director of Coaching Education I owe a lot to ASC in making our lesson planning so easy to accomplish and importantly, to share as well.

We use Academy Soccer Coach and the easy to use Session Template software to put together our training programmes at the West Ham United Youth Academy and would recommend it to all professional soccer associations, clubs and coaches.

Academy Director West Ham United FC

We’ve been happily working with Academy Soccer Coach for 4 seasons now. The Academy has really benefitted from the daily use of session plans & player report forms created to our exact needs by the ASC team. They have excellent insight into player development and have worked very closely with us when understanding our requirements, this has meant we’ve constantly ended up with a quality product that our coaching team are able to put to good use in developing our young talent. I’ve been quick to recommend Academy Soccer Coach to colleagues in the industry and am always impressed to learn of their new products and developments.

At the IFA we find the Academy Soccer programme to be of great benefit to all our coaches. With the Women’s International squads the set pieces and team shapes and sessions are all planned using their Session Template software, Session Plans and Digital Coaching Forms.

Our coaches who enroll on our Coach Education courses are all encouraged to join Academy Soccer Coach.co.uk.

It is so easy to follow and simple to use.

We would recommend it to everyone at all levels in football.

The service and quality of product we have received is first class. Not only did Academy Soccer Coach improve and enhance our coach's planning and evaluations of sessions, it enabled us to create a wealth of session libraries for Crystal Palace FC Academy that can be used for years to come. All of our coaches received training and support in the initial set up of the system and with a bespoke programme for our club, I am absolutely delighted with the product.

Academy Soccer Coach have been a great help to us at the Down's Syndrome Association with our DSActive programme. When we began devising a resource for coaching people with Down's Syndrome,  we hit a brick wall due to the current software available not meeting our specific needs. Finding the ASC software was a huge relief in terms of our bespoke needs. It has simple functionality and a price tag that is, in our opinion, is unbeatable.
