My kids have been taking soccer with PEFS-- that's how we Yanks call it -- since before they turned 3 and they are about to turn 5. It has been the best activity our children have participated in. And my kids do a lot of activities!
The team combined the obvious skills of a sports instructor with a keen knowledge of how to work with preschoolers to increase the confidence, social skills, language development and focus. Best of all, it is FUN! They are natural leaders who both girls and boys respond to. They take sports and discipline seriously but the team never over emphasize the competition aspect of the game. Instead they teach respect and sportsmanship. PEFS have empathy and respect for a host of backgrounds, and kids feel that.
The coaches are an anchor for kids who are shy, nerdy, super sporty, talented, afraid. They are there for everyone, and they have been wonderful to my children and many others. The classes, which emphasize learning the dynamics of group play and movement, are the perfect base for creating a love of fitness. That is all I ever wanted for my twin sons who are completely opposite, and I believe the class boosted skills for both of them.
What a wonderful entrance into the world of sport they have had thanks to Prague English Football School!

"The classes are professional, well-structured and most of all FUN! My 4-year old can't wait for Saturday morning practice!"
Karina Bolan, Prague English Football School parent
The team are natural teachers.
They use the perfect combination of knowledge, skill, and patience to make learning football a joy for their students.
My son had so much fun every day while improving his game!

"All of the children and parents had a wonderful experience due to Sam's direction and his teams' outstanding coaching skills. He has a unique talent in working with young people"
Patrick Goolsby, Owner, Beverly Hills Futbol Club
"The boys love the drills and never want the sessions to end!
These are terrific coaches, who quickly gain the respect of the players and coaches.
As knowledgeable as they are as coaches, they are even more skilled in communicating with players. They have the rare gift of being able to communicate with people of all ages and gain their cooperation to achieve a common goal"

"The raves I've received from the families and the smiles I've seen on the children's faces are high praise indeed for a job well done. I would even say above and beyond our greatest hopes and expectations"
David Thomas, Regional Director Los Angeles, UK International Soccer Camps
"I can honestly say this was by far the best coaches we have ever had the pleasure to work with in Region 76. And much of that is owing to their direction and the way in which the team accepted the enormous responsibility of helping launch this program with such dedication and professionalism"
Sarah, U5 Girls Division Director, Beverly Hills AYSO 76
" I simply can't say enough about the job this team did in turning this experience into such a
positive one for the entire division.
I can honestly say we didn't receive one single complaint about the program all season. Not one. And as a division director dealing with hundreds of parents, that is simply unheard of.
Rather, there was a steady stream of praise, and word of mouth was so good that numerous people were trying to get into the program after it had filled up because they had heard how much fun their friends' children were having in it"
Greg Temkin, U5 Boys Division Director, Beverly Hills AYSO 76
"We have been attending Prague English Football School since it began, and have watched our son develop not only his football skills, but also a general love of sport which has progressed as a direct result of PEFS to include running and floorball. Sam and his team are not just proficient coaches, but also skilled in really bringing the enjoyment of the sport to the kids.
The PEFS team use a super mix of games and technical coaching with just the right amount of discipline to keep focus without reducing the fun. Completely recommend to anyone who wants their child to actually enjoy sport as well as developing skill"
David Cairns, Prague English Football School parent
"Prague English Football School is amazing. Our kid has a lot of fun while also learning football basics (considering he is 3 years old). Sam puts together very creative and fun games for the kids. I believe it's also a nice environment to meet other people from different nationalities. I recommend it 100% - no way your kid (and you) will not have fun! ...”
Gaston Levin Garfinkel, Prague English Football School parent
" I can see improvement with my 5-year old in his coordination and ability to handle the ball with finesse. The coaches run a great practice, and also make it enjoyable for the kids, which is essential!'
Brian Mattison, Prague English Football School parent
