"I am the proud father of the twins Ben and Aaron who played their first game last weekend for Kingsley against North Beach. Not only did they share 5 goals between them (o.k. one was for the other side - it was an attempted clearance) but they were the standout players on both sides despite a boy from the other team also scoring a hatrick. I had numerous parents from the other side rekarking on how good the twins were at controlling the ball and running with it, as well as their awareness of what was going on. You could see the pleasure and confidence in the twins resulting from their skills. The only problem now is bringing them down to earth and getting them to let the other kids have a kick of the ball .. but that's another story.
It is testament to their time and your efforts being well spent over the last few years. I recommended your services highly to those who enquired as to their teaching and will continue to do so. Soccer is a great sport for kids of all ages and the head start that you have provided was clearly evident throughout the game when comparing what level the other kids (without your teachings) are at. I would say to the other parents whose kids are not yet playing in a team .. be prepared to be surprised at the standard your kids are at in comparison to those kids who have not spent time at Nick Corrigan's Soccer Schools. When you may wonder why Nick has the kids playing games such as "crabs' etc. instead of playing real matches, just be patient as the ball control skills they are learning pay off. There is plenty of time for matches in the years to come.
Thanks again Nick for your patience and teachings."
"We first took our twin boys, Aaron and Ben, to Nick Corrigan’s Soccer School at Currumbine back in 2006 when they were still 3 years old. After initially running off in different directions and not listening, they soon settled down and paid attention. This, rather fortunately, also turned out to be good preparation for them going to pre-school. Thanks Nick and coaching staff.
The twins absolutely loved going to the Soccer Schools on Saturday mornings and the holiday clinics. They enjoyed mixing with the other kids and having fun playing the games like “crab” but especially loved the numbers game. In fact, it was down to the twins constantly battling and wrestling each during this game that led to the introduction of yellow and red cards in the Soccer Schools with Ben being the first player to ever receive a red card from Nick. What an honour. I can still remember Ben chasing Nick all around Currumbine Oval trying to hand it back to him after being told to run a lap whilst holding it before he could resume playing.
In the years since Aaron has been a National Premier League winner with both ECU and Sorrento and will continue to play for Sorrento 14’s in 2016. He also went back recently to help out at the Soccer School for a while and loved helping the new boys and girls to do the drills and games. Ben has been a league and cup winner for ECU before he moved on to play for Perth Glory in 2015 and has been re-selected for the 2016 season. He was also selected to play for WA’s 2015 state team that recently went to Coffs Harbour, NSW and has been fortunate to have been asked to travel to the UK and train with English Premier League team Aston Villa on two occasions in recent years. Both Aaron and Ben continue to work hard when training and playing and have formed a large group of like minded and good friends from their different team mates over the last few years.
Life, not just football, is about paths we all take and taking the boys along to Nick Corrigan’s Schools all those years ago was one of the best things we ever did. No matter what ability your child has, they are always made welcome at the Soccer Schools. All the kids I have seen over the years have had great fun while they learn and play with the other boys and girls, without the pressures of “formal” soccer training sessions. The “silly” games do in fact have a purpose and should be enjoyed by all playing and watching, as football can get a bit too serious very quickly, as the kids grow older. Let them have fun first.
We are proud supporters of Nick Corrigan’s Soccer Schools and wish Nick and his coaches all the best for the future."
"Thank you for a fantastic trial session at Ellen Stirling PS yesterday.
Kaitlyn (age 6) & Steven (age 5) had a fantastic time.
In particular, Steve, he loved it!!! We have had a difficult time in getting him to try sports. He thinks that they are too dangerous, he won't even ride his bike (with training wheels) as it is too dangerous. He loves being outside, just not doing sports.
Hubby & I think he is scared of not doing it right the first time & hence will not try. It was fantastic to see Steve have a go yesterday & he really enjoyed it. I don't think he even realised he was learning new things, as it was so much fun. Thank you.
Looking forward to next Wednesday :)"
"My 7 yr old son Brody loves Soccer ( he keeps telling me that...when he leaves school that's what he will be doing) I have never put Brody into soccer before...(Nic your school is the first for our boy) What can I say he loves coming to your classes every Wednesday @ Currambine Primary School. I tried to get Brody into your classes last term but you were fully booked :( :(......But when I told him this term that he was in... OMG he was so excited. Nic I would like to thank you for the job that you do....our son comes away smiling after each lesson from you.
"Just a short note to say a huge thank-you for all you have done for our son with the Soccer School. Because of the classes, he has met new friends and increased his confidence in taking on new challenges. He loves the soccer school and looks forward to going every Friday, he has learnt some really fantastic skills with the ball and hopefully will go on to playing in a team. Thanks for all your patience, kindness and fun which you show to the kids on a weekly basis."
"I would like to express my thanks for a wonderful year of soccer training that Yared has had in your soccer school.
The soccer lessons were a highlight of the week with Yared enjoying every session. It was obvious that your love of soccer and your dedication to teaching the children ensured a quality class which was fun for all participants. As a parent it was great to see the children enjoy participating in such a healthy outlet and improving on their skills as the term progressed. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick Corrigan's Soccer School to other families"
"I would highly recommend Nick Corrigans Soccer School . Both of my sons have attended Nicks sessions since 3 years of age and have always loved the fun and friendly approach that he has. Nick has a fantastic repour with the children and makes each and everyone of them feel special. Nick has installed a love of football in my boys from such an early age and my son has since gone on to play for Perth Glory Juniors and represent the state at National level."
"Nick and team are so friendly and personable with the kids. The team really go the extra mile in making sure they provide a really fun and safe environment for the kids to learn the skills of the game. I have tried many other children's football clubs in Perth but Nick Corrigans is by far the best, his passion and Ethusiam for youth football is really noticeable each and every week!"
"We would thoroughly recommend Nick Corrigan soccer schools to anyone wanting their child to learn the fundamentals of the game whilst having lots of fun at the same time. Nick and all his coaches not only have a passion for soccer but a heart for working with children and Nick's sessions accommodate for all children whatever their ability. The sessions will certainly develop your child's soccer skills and grow their confidence at the same time as ensuring they have lots of fun in the process. Our son has grown in all areas over the last year as he has been training with the school and we look forward to several more years with Nick to come."
"Nick is a child genius! This program has proved a lifesaver for the school holidays. Just when the fighting and boredom was setting in along comes this soccer clinic and the holidays have gone by in a dream. Nick kept my 5 year old and 7 year old enthusiastic for a week. I was worried about the heat and the long days but what a surprise I received when the kids hopped in the car and wouldn’t stop chatting away about their brilliant day. I expected this for the first day but after 4 days they are still happy and asking to go again next school holidays. My boys have completely different personalities and Nick made both of them feel comfortable and enthusiastic. He has a great energy and is very easy for everyone to enjoy. I cannot recommend this great program enough. Thank you Nick!"
