Testimonials from parents and the players that Coach Garcia and his coaching staff have trained:
"Leo Garcia, in my opinion, is one of the best technical trainers in the Midwest. The East Kentwood Soccer Program has been the beneficiary of many great players that come from the tutelage of Coach Garcia. Leo is a master of teaching kids creative dribbling, problem solving in tight spaces, confidence on the ball, and bravery in 1v1 situations. I love the positive impact that he has on young men and women, and his ability to make a complicated game seem so easy. I know as a father, Leo has had a huge impact on the development of my oldest son and my children will continue to train with Leo as long as they play the game. His training should be a part of every young player's development."

"The Garcia Futsal Academy is one of the BEST football skill programs in Grand Rapids bar none! Not only is Coach Leo kind & patient, but he has challenged my kids to push the limits of their skills which has subsequently turned them into better players. I enjoy their football games even more as I see them incorporate these skills into their games. The Garcia Futsal Academy prepares my kids with real world football skills for real world football games!”
