I would say my experience at iProSkills Academy has taught me the fundamentals of fútbol and then shown me the higher aspects of the game. For me personally, iProSkills has been a family that has supported me in more than just in futbol but also in my own life. The coaching staff and players put in a tremendous effort to help each individual player to reach the max of their capabilities and then helped them become more than that. Thank you iProSkills for allowing me to be where I am today.

iProSkills Summer Soccer Camp is a phenomenal camp for the serious soccer player. Coach Costel and his staff are excellent coaches who are passionate about soccer and helping their players to be the best they can be. This camp is a great way to give your child the skills he or she needs to be successful both on the field and off. Coach Costel pushes players to their maximum potential and helps them to realize the superstar that is inside of them. If your son or daughter loves soccer, this is the camp for them!

An amazing program with incredible coaches. The training is focused on improving individual skills and making every player the best he or she can be. The organization feels like a family as well.

iPro skills is where confidence and skill meet. My daughter has quickly gained the confidence to control the ball and through their many available skill classes has learned how to control the ball and play the game better. The coaching is very attentive, dedicated, and kind. You can feel the positive energy they put into coaching the kids. If you want great professional coaching, motivational practices, and overall a great soccer experience, this is the place to be!

Coach Costel is a wonderful coach and goes out of his way to teach his students on and off the field. Last year Coach Costel was the main attraction at my son’s birthday party, where he provided an amazing experience for not only 25 children, but also my son who felt incredibly special. Coach Costel made it so easy for me by bringing all the gear necessary for the kids to be entertained for over two hours. Regardless if the kids had soccer experience, all the children learned skills, enjoyed a scrimmage game and had a blast. Thank you Coach Costel!

Best European style of coaching in Chicago! (watch a couple of iProSkills videos and you will quickly understand what I mean) Anyways, Coach Catalin is very professional, friendly, and family-oriented…The practices are tough but well balanced. Between skills, speed, endurance, agility, and discipline the kids get it all at iProSkills Academy. I only wish that all the programs in the US could provide such high-quality soccer training.

This soccer academy is not only about the sport – It’s a community dedicated to its kids and families.
