Mike Miller, former men's soccer coach: Duke University, Syracuse University & University of Connecticut

"There is no bigger testimonial than the players whose careers were impacted by Aleks Mihailovic and Soccer Made In America Training programs.
Coach Mihailovic has a great eye for evaluating potential talent and an even better ability to develop talent. His sessions place a strong emphasis on technique and tactical problem solving for player development. He helped me to become a better player in college and I have incorporated many of those learnings into my coaching philosophies today."

Bryan Becker, former Division 1 player at Dartmouth University and parent of Chicago Blast Soccer Club and SMIA

"If you really want your children to improve, I will only recommend SMIA training. I can’t believe how good it is.  My son was an average player before he started to participate in the SMIA program.  He is now a much-improved player with ambition and a realistic chance to play in college.  We spent time with other trainers, and nothing compares with this training."

Lauren Sesselman, Bronze Medalist, Canadian Olympic Soccer Team - Member, World Cup Soccer Team

"When I met Aleks Mihailovic, I was an All-American forward at Purdue. He saw my coach on the U.S. National Select Team and recommended that I play on the defensive line. I had never played defense before, but I went on to play defense professionally for nine years.  I capped my career as a starting defender for the Canadian National Team where we advanced to the quarter-finals in the Olympics and won a Bronze Medal. Aleks knows talent!"
