"Sahlen's Champions soccer program is very well run by Coach Dylan. It's divided up into age groups so the kids playing and practicing with one another are at similar skills/physical ability. Each practice is broken out into two parts, the first 30 minutes is dedicated to practice / drills and the second 30 minutes is scrimmage time. The drills are fun, the kids really enjoy doing them. They aren't boring like when I was playing soccer as a youth. They do interactive and creative games that hide the fact these kids are actually doing soccer drills! Coach Dylan is an excellent soccer coach and the kids really enjoy his practices. Along with an assistant, he maintains control of practice very well, and helps the kids learn and refine their skills. The Champions program is a great way to get your kids actively involved in soccer and Sahlen's indoor facility makes playing soccer a year-round activity in WNY!"

"My 8 year old and 5 year old sons have been attending the soccer programs at Sahlen's Sports Park for the past 2 years.  Coach "Kiwi" Lines and Coach Alex Sahlen have assembled an enthusiastic and knowledgeable coaching staff.  The soccer instruction is top notch and is presented to the young athletes in a way that will challenge them to improve, but is easily understood and fun to participate in. Training sessions are well planned and organized.  The children are moving every second, never standing still or wasting time.  Coach "Kiwi" and Coach Sahlen are fully involved in all of the coaching and instruct each and every player.  They are not just figure heads who put their name on a brochure and you never see.    

As great as the soccer instruction is, what I am most pleased with and impressed by is the connection all of the coaches and the WNY Flash players have made with my sons and all of the young soccer players.  It is easy to see that the coaches not only have a passion for soccer, but also truly enjoy working with children.  Through their interactions, the coaches have made a very positive impact on my sons' soccer skills and, more importantly to me, their character.  It is very common at home to hear my children quote one of their coaches about many different topics, not just soccer.

I believe the soccer programs at Sahlen's are the perfect combination of professional level instruction, delivered by people who are excellent role models for children."
