How Coaches Training Room Began...
It all started on the forum back in the year 2014...

Eric was introducing himself in the BigSoccer community forum thread and noticed Mark's thread introduction just above his... 

It sparked Eric's attention as Mark mentioned in his introduction that he was a passionate soccer coach and shared a link to his youtube channel which had animated soccer video activities. 

After watching these drills on youtube Eric knew he had to reach out to Mark and have a conversation... 

Eric knew these video animations could be packaged into an app for soccer coaches just like he did with his player video trainings for his app he completed called Vogel Soccer Mastery.

From here Eric and Mark had a conversation via Skype and eventually the Soccer Coaching Drills App was being put into motion and later completed...

A little later more and more coaches were requesting sessions to be available on their desktops and laptops with PDF downloads of each session in addition to video sessions...

And Voila! This is how the Coaches Training Room website came to be born!
