I have been coaching with travel soccer for 11 years and Ashley is one of the best trainers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. As you and I would expect, all the trainers have enough skill and knowledge of the game to train a team. Ashley raising the bar with his professionalism, his attitude and his ability to engage the player. I find his level of commitment refreshing and I would recommend him as a trainer to any organization. - Michael Connell
I have played soccer my entire life including 4 years Division I college at Umass and having the opportunity to work with Ash coaching my kids as well as observe his abilities with other teams, I have nothing but the highest praise for his organization, people skills and complete understanding of the game and how to educate others at all age levels. -Carl Hanks
Ashley is great! He is wonderful with the girls, having control over them and teaching them while having fun with them. He is very professional and shows great interest in the team. He is easy to get in touch with, returns emails, and very enthusiastic. We have already seen great improvements with the team. He is an excellent teacher and the girls really like him too.
We have been very pleased. -Ellen Crowe.
My daughter Gabriela (Ela) played for you on the summer Celtic U11 Team. We want to thank you for a great job with the team, and thank you and your assistants for showing Ela how much more there is to playing defense then just stopping the opponent. She now understands how she can and should be involved when her team has the ball and how important possession is. She attended a couple camps this summer which were based primarily on ball handing. This fall season she is double carded with the Highpoint United U12 co-ed team, and with the Kittatinny U12 Girls Travel team. We already see a differance when she is on the field. She is much more confident at her position, and seems to have taken a leadership role. She directs her teammates so that they are in the correct position, and has the defensive players calling the midfielders to pass back when needed. We know most of this leadership comes from training with you. We really feel the time with the Celtics has improved her game and made her a more rounded player. Ela and our Family would like to thank you for a great job!! - Gary Christensen Highpoint & Kittatinny Soccer
Ashley has been doing a great job with my U9 Boys. He has a good balance with how to handle incidents but allows them to be 8 year olds. He has a calm personality but the boys listen and is approachable. He communicates with me about how our games went and what i feel we need to work on and at practise he has listened and formulated a plan which he discuuses with me. Overall a good first half to the season Ashley " keep up the great work". -Pete Massey Head coach Sparta Tigers U9 Boys.
Ashley is very good. The girls really respect and like him. It is clear that he understand how to teach this age group. He is able to keep the girls organized with appropriate discipline while at the same time making it fun. He always comes prepared - always has his sessions planned out in advance. A very professional trainer. - Pete Keeler WMSC
Ash is an all around great trainer. I hired him for my U-12 flight 1 girls team and he worked very well with them. Proper yet fun and informative, the girls all had a great time with him while learning more about the game and different tactics. I would highly recommend Ashley if your looking for a trainer.

Ash is an excellent soccer trainer. I hired him to personally train three (3) of my U-11 girls over 10 sessions this winter, and definitely have seen the positive results. My players learned valuable foot skills and now control the ball with confidence. he also provided a training plan, we could track the progress and work on similar skills during our normal team practices. Ashley has also stepped in as a whole team trainer on occasion, keeping the sessions moving along (no lines) and all players engaged. I would hire Ashley again for personal player and/or team development. - Eric Neuffer NW Energy
