"Hard Work Beats Talent, When Talent Doesn't Work Hard."
EXPERIENCE. PASSION. COMMITMENT.
WELCOME TO STRICTLY SOCCER!
Where Passion Meets Determination
Our training philosophy is simple: to teach and inspire. We want every player, no matter what skill level, to love the game and strive to be the best they can be. Whether you are interested in working on a particular facet of your game, improving your overall athletic performance, or moving to the next level of competition, let us help you achieve your goals.
At Strictly Soccer, we cater to athletes of all ages and experience levels. Whether you are interested in working on a particular facet of your game, improving your overall athletic performance, or moving to the next level of competition, let us help you achieve your goals. We offer both Private and Small Group Training sessions that instill rapid improvement in ball control, passing, shooting, crossing, heading, attacking, defending and ultimately…player confidence. Our goal is to develop creative, dynamic players who will continue to play the game for years to come.
Private Training Sessions
Private training sessions are one of the quickest ways to accelerate a players ability. Strictly Soccer focuses on technical skills - ball control, moves, dribbling, accuracy and power. Strictly Soccer’s goal is to help players improve and gain confidence in a positive and professional environment.
Small Group Training
Group training sessions provide players the opportunity to experience game like situations while still maximizing touches on the ball. It’s a great opportunity for teammates to practice in a smaller setting, have fun, and push each other to their limits. Sessions are limited to 2-6 players.
A LITTLE ABOUT US
Training for Greatness
Director and Coach
As a Soccer Coach based in the greater Seattle/Eastside area, I have been training athletes to greatness for over twenty-five years. I am passionate about the game and even more passionate about helping my trainees improve theirs. I focus on positive reinforcement giving each client the individual guidance they need to reach and exceed their limits. Through intense preparation and realistic goal-setting, I motivate, inspire, and develop my athletes into successful stars.
Player and Coach
I grew up training within the Strictly Soccer curriculum and it paid off. I currently play at the collegiate level and Crossfire U23 Men's Team. When I am not playing (or studying) I am coaching. Summer camps, clinics, and private training sessions occupy most of my spare time. I bring a contagious energy and enthusiasm to every session. Let me help you prepare for State Cup, tryouts, or just earn more playing time.
WHAT MY ATHLETES THINK
“Shelley does an amazing job of not only improving players abilities but also giving them confidence, which may be the most important aspect of being a successful athlete. Shelley had such a positive effect on our daughter!”
"Shelley loves & lives the game of soccer! Her foot skills are phenomenal, her traditional fundamentals and techniques are what make her trainings so great! We recommend Shelley's Strictly Soccer to any player wanting to compete at the highest level!"
"Claire loves soccer and training with Shelley. She gets lots of individual attention and always walks away with a new move or defensive/ offensive tactic. Plus she loves winning the crossbar challenge! Shelley helps girls realize their potential and inspires a real love for the game through positive feedback and positive reinforcement."
