Masha started training with Finesse Soccer in the fall of 2017. She came to us as a field player wanting to improve her goalkeeping skills, and boy did she ever! Masha's family just moved to New York, but we really enjoyed the time we got to spend working with her. She and Alex developed a special rapport that hopefully will last while with Masha.
"Her coach (Alex) has taught Masha the proper techniques to playing goalkeeper, which has helped her gain confidence on the pitch. I feel better as a parent knowing she is diving properly and learning the proper techniques to protect herself."
