What People Are Saying About Burgi Hoffman:

Coach Burgi

“I wouldn’t be where I am without Burgi” that’s what our daughter a collegiate D2 soccer player said just before returning to college to begin her Senior year. She began weekly sessions and camps with Burgi when she was in the fourth grade. Over the years Burgi coached our daughter through varsity high school soccer where she earned offensive player of the year, California State Cup, National Cup, ECNL League play offs, CCAA league championship 2022, NCAA playoffs 2022, and Student-Athlete status (3.98 – 4.0 GPA, high school, and college). Burgi’s ability to teach and redirect with humor, kindness and firmness allowed our daughter to perfect her skills set while adapting to new teams and coaches along the way. What she learned with Burgi helped her prepared and perform for the next level. We would recommend Burgi to anyone who wants to hone their skills, improve their game, keep their love of the game, and reach their highest potential. Thank you, Burgi, for all your hard work, dedication, and kindness throughout the years.

Coach Burgi

My daughter has had many soccer coaches over 13 years in playing the sport, but none have had as profound of an impact on her overall performance as Burgi. His passion for the game, tireless dedication to his players and genuine care for their growth is something every athlete and parent seeks in a coach. I truly believe that Burgi not only taught my daughter how to be an elite soccer player, but he also taught her to remain strong and how to be competitive in life.

Coach Burgi

Burgi Hoffman knows how to train kids properly (national team players, college players, pros) and doesn’t sugar coat how your kids are doing. almost anyone who has been around in OC knows Burgi. I’ve gone to see what they are doing at other training but my kids always go to Burgi for consistent training. Just have to stay away from the “cone tossers” who don’t use anything besides a few cones and maybe a ladder every week – some of those guys can also be pretty expensive. Some also think doing push ups, sit ups and running them for an hour is training. When you go to enough camps, individual and group training you will figure out who the legit coaches are.

Coach Burgi

He has always been very thoughtful and taught Sean with great care. Not only did the lessons help Sean improve physically, it also helped him mentally. With all of these developments, Sean managed to accomplish in getting into a well-known residency academy in Arizona. However, the environment there wasn’t as good as we expected so Sean returned back to California and got lessons from Burgi again. Back with Burgi’s help, Sean started to improve a lot. Thank you for all your help and support Coach Burgi.

Hi Coach Burgi

I just wanted to let you know that Kira was the only freshman to make varsity at her new high school in Boston area.  The high school has about 2000 kids and a long soccer tradition. She was a starting defender this fall for much of the season before some injuries mid season.
All those Burgi training sessions made a difference. Thanks so much for all the coaching you gave her over the years in California. Your program was a key part of her soccer development and success.

Coach Burgi

My daughter Caytlyn started training with Burgi when she was nine years old and continued to train with him up to the day she left for college. Burgi’s training and camps made my daughter the player she is today. She received a soccer scholarship and now plays for an NAIA school in Kansas. The best part about Burgi, is he cares about every single player he trains, if a player is having a difficult time with a drill he will take the time to help the player understand how to perform the drill before moving on. His camps are incredible, the players are constantly moving and there is very little down time. Thank you Burgi, for teaching Caytlyn the skills she needs to succeed and play at the next level.

I really enjoy watching your trainings. You do such a great job coming up with creative and varied ways for the kids to work on their footwork and shooting skills. I absolutely love how you force them to mentally concentrate and really focus to be able to complete your drills. It’s so good for their game and life! I’m always impressed!
Thank you for your commitment to my son’s development. He absolutely loves coming to “Burgi trainings”. And, I love it too!!

Hello from Mammoth!

Thank you for this past weeks camp. Lainey and Hallie enjoyed all that they learned, including the hard work. Lainey said this was more challenging than the UCLA camp she attended this summer. She also mentioned that she would be so good if she could train like this for 30 days straight!
We are thankful for your program. And may see you at your next camp.
Best wishes,
Lynn and Stu

“I am writing this testimonial to let everyone know what a wonderful, knowledgable, and hard-working coach Burgi Hoffman is! His practices are always packed with non-stop action and drills that teach incredible ball-handling and techniques that are directly applicable to game situations. And while my daughter comes home exhausted, she always has a smile on her face and renewed confidence in her ability to dominate the competition. He brings an energy and positive attitude to every practice that is infectious, and encourages each of his students to continue to improve. I would whole heartedly recommend Burgi to anyone who wants their child to grow both technically and confidently into a champion!” Rene

“My daughter just returned from a weekend of soccer in New Jersey tonight! Her new coach was extremely happy with the way she played. He is playing her at center mid. Thank you for all you have done to help improve her game. She loves your training! Thanks again,” N.B.

K.D. Says..

“My two 13-year-old boys have been training with Burgi Hoffman for the past two years. I have seen a vast improvement in their skills and abilities. Burgi emphasizes skills development and works with the players until they get it. I recently noticed my boys playing in a game last week and they have both been more aggressive to the ball and are able to defend and control the ball by using skills Burgi taught them. Both of them have been able to receive and send the ball with their opposite foot to continue the attack. This was another skill Burgi has worked on. I highly recommend Premier Youth Soccer Academy and Burgi Hoffman to anyone interested in have their son or daughter improve their skills and play competitively. Thank you Burgi.”, K.D.

K.L. Says..

“My son has trained with you for almost two years. From you, he learned proper footwork techniques and great ball control skills. At age 6, he can already juggle the ball over 500 times. When he went try out for U9 teams of two top clubs in the area, he was offered starting center-mid position of their first (silver level) teams from not one but both clubs! One of the coach said, “He is an attacking player who offers excellent vision and decision making capabilities. His play will set the standard for the rest of the players on the team.” I never thought my son would come this far especially that he has a July birthday. He has to compensate his age disadvantage with the skills. And, your training did exactly that to propel him to the highest level!! Thank you so much!”, K.L.

K.W. Says..

“I wanted to let you know that my daughter had a fantastic game on Saturday! She definitely used the skills she learned at your camp and was able to go around defenders like crazy. She scored 3 goals, and almost had about 3 more!! She also passed the ball to her teamates very effectively. It was the first game that they’ve won and she was very excited. Thanks!!!” K.W.

M.F. Says..

“I wanted to th ank you for helping our son achieve his soccer goal. He has moved to a higher level of soccer and has become team captain. Also, my daughter has become team captain of her club team and made the high school soccer team.Your training had made a big difference.” M.F.

S.S. Says..

“My son has progressed to a club soccer team that has many accomplishments including Gold level, League Cup Finalists, California Cup Champions, U. S. World Series Champions, U.S. Club National Cup Champions and more. He is very happy to have the skills needed to play at this level. Many thanks to Premier Youth Soccer Academy.” S.S.

J.D. Says..

“My two boys have trained with you at Premier Youth Soccer Academy for 4 years. Their accomplishments are many and we have you to thank. My older son has played on a gold level club team, earned a center-mid position with full play time and is team captain. As a high school freshman, he was the only student chosen to play on the varsity team, was a full-time starter, played every game and earned a spot on the OC Varsity Leaderboard. My younger son also plays on one of the top gold level club teams, earned his offensive position and increased play time. He is now one of his teams recognized players and has made the ODP team. In the winter regional ODP games, his team won the championship and he was top scorer. We owe you so much. Your private lessons and camps have helped them both become exceptional players. We believe that ongoing training at Premier Youth Soccer Academy has played a major role in their success.Thank you.” J.D.

J.P. Says..

“Your 2008 New Year clinic was, as my daughter described it: “AWESOME!” She had a wonderful time and she learned a lot from you and all your coaches. She also gained more confidence in her skills and in her ability to compete with other girls her age. Shortly after your clinic, she participated in an All Star tournament and did very well. Her coaches and other parents on our team commented on her “overnight improvements.” I quickly respond, as a proud father, that she owes her added skills and confidence to Coach Burgi. Immediately everyone wants to know more about your program. We will continue to promote your program because we totally believe in the positive reinforcement methods you use to train the students in your program. We also appreciate your high caliber professionalism. Other coaches should model themselves after you. Keep-up the good work!” J.P.

Adrian Says..

Hi Burgi, I really want to thank you for teaching Andrew his soccer skills over the years since he was 6 years old. He now has the best skills on his team and every parent is asking where he trained. We really appreciate you and your program at Premier Youth Soccer Academy! We look forward to his ongoing training every Friday! Thank you so much! Adrian

Joyce Says..

Hi Burgi, I wanted to say thank you for a great spring camp! Josef had a great time, and I have to say that he has been to many camps over the years and yours was by far the best one yet! Your camp program was very well run and organized which for us was a plus. I was amazed how much was covered in just three days. You and your coaches made it tough, but fun, keeping it positive and bringing wonderful energy for the kids. It was contagious and fun to watch. He really enjoyed going every day, and used new skills at his club practice which didn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for a great experience and know that he will definitely be doing another Premier camp. See you at training! Thank you so much! Joyce
