This is what our clients are saying...

PPA training has been the best training we have seen in the Tri-state area! We have been to many clinics (NJ, PA, NY) and this is the best player development training I have seen! The coaching style is amazing! Coming from a Colombian background, I was looking for a specific style of training and we are so glad we found it in PPA training! We have taken our daughter everywhere and everyone is always impress with her technical ability at such a young age. She has excel in every tryout we have taken her to. She stands out from the crowd because of her crisp techniques she is able to do for her age. We love the coaching style and the personal development they provide for her. She is comfortable around them and she knows that if she is having an issue on the field she can go to Julio and he will provide her with guidance that she then takes to the field. Our daughter plays for an ECNL team, ODP and a handful of other clubs she is a guest player on. We believe that this success has been possible because of PPA training. It has definitely separated her from the thousands of other “pony tails” on the field. PPA training is a great investment!

If you want your child to be challenged physically and mentally to become and Elite Player and beyond PPA and Julio is where you NEED to be. I’ve taken my sons to a few trainers before and it was pretty much the same thing. Put cones and sticks on the ground dribble through and pass the ball. I thought it was great and the boys were learning. Then one day a parent told me about PPA Training and Julio. So I got in touch with Julio and got the boys with him for a training session. I think we were at the first session for 3 minutes when Julio asked, “why do you want to play and why are you here?” The boys answered him and Julio said, “let’s go”. After the session my boys (who I thought to be in great shape) said to me, “Dad I am so exhausted” Chance said not only physically, but mentally. After just a few sessions I could see that not only were their skills progressing RAPIDLY, but their IQ was developing even faster. Julio calls my boys his boys and truly cares not only about training your child in soccer, he cares about making sure your child is a confident girl or boy in life. I am truly thankful that Northeastern Pennsylvania has a man like Julio here. Trust me he is as Elite of a Trainer as it gets. COME JOIN THE PPA FAMLIY!!!

If you are looking to significantly enhance your soccer skills and abilities, Coach Julio will provide those results and more. My daughter has been working with Coach Julio, and her improvement has been amazing. She has attended other various clinics and camps in the past, and Coach Julio's format of teaching and training is second to none. The way he breaks down trainings into a step-by-step process and then puts everything together into a total package makes learning from him easy for any level or age of an athlete. Coach Julio's ability to not only explain the "how" but the "why" to help understand every aspect of the sport is highly beneficial to any level of player. My daughter has been doing the virtual online trainings with Coach Julio too, and the trainings have translated perfectly from in-person to online. His online sessions are just as intense, educational and rewarding as his in-person sessions always are. I highly recommend Coach Julio!

Coach Julio Pertuz is the Master Jeti of coaches. Over the years, our son has played for numerous clubs and coaches. He currently plays on three Global Premier Soccer teams and is often asked to play with other teams. After doing private lessons with Coach Julio, we knew that he was the coach that could take him to the next level in his quest to become a professional soccer player. Coach Julio's Zoom training sessions for the elite boys are very demanding. He works them hard and that makes for sore bodies that will be able to handle the rigors of 11v11 play. Coach Julio's program conditions their bodies and improves their mindset to develop them to push beyond what they think they cannot do. All while improving their foot skills to new levels. This training is all through the power of the internet. Coach Julio was also gracious enough to let one of my sons favorite coaches sit in on a lesson, so he could see how Zoom could be utilized to instruct players. Prior coaches are amazed and commented on how his skills and confidence has improved since these sessions began. The improvements are amazing and we intend to have Coach Julio as his primary trainer for the foreseeable future. Thank you Coach Julio for making a difference.

Coach Julio offers a high level of soccer training to youth. He also possesses a magnetism that motivates kids to perform at a higher level. My children look forward to sessions with him and have elevated their game under his guidance. In particular, their foot skills and striking technique have improved greatly. Julio is definitely the best trainer in the area. Not only do his players work hard but they have fun and become a family. Give PPA training a try, you will not regret this decision. I’ve never met a trainer/coach that can motivate our kids like he does. I highly recommend Coach Julio and PPA training.
Colleen Newswanger
My son has been training with Julio for the past 8 months and the improvement is amazing. His training sessions are challenging and he's meticulous with footwork and ball handling. My 11 year old is playing at another level since starting with Julio and we're excited to see where he'll end up. My 6 year old recently started working with him and I'm impressed with how he catered to her age and ability and she can't wait to see him again!
Jodi Dubas Leuthe
I highly recommend Coach Julio and PPA Training not only for the individual player but also for the entire team. I had the privilege of coaching and training my team “Strikers” with coach Julio for 4 years and I observed massive improvement in every player technically and tactically. I have attended his team training sessions countless times and observed him working with players as a team and individually, gaining respect from each player. It is especially gratifying, to see weaker players develop and gain respect from his teammates and the team(s) playing more consistently.

Soccer Coach
My son has been training with Julio regularly for at least the past year. To say he is one of the best soccer trainers in the area is untrue -- HE IS THE BEST! Julio has a passion for the game that he ignites in those that he trains. The skills that my son has learned and the discipline to keep working harder to get better in amazing. Since the COVID19 outbreak he has been participating in Julio's ZOOM training sessions 2x's a week and we have now moved up to 3x's. He was hesitant to do it at first because it was different than being on a field but the virtual training with ZOOM has proved extremely beneficial. He’s kept the skills he has previously mastered, acquiring new skills, and getting a fantastic workout (sweat and all). He also gets to see his buddies that he plays with while in quarantine. I cannot thank Julio enough for his dedication to these kids during this difficult time and keeping it fun for them!!
Molly McDonald
Worked with Julio for about a month and the skill improvement really showed in not only myself but also in my team mates that trained with him as well. His personality and the way he coaches and interacts with us always leaves us wanting more. He is very lively and friendly and knows how to push you to do your best and it is definitely worth it in the end. If you're looking to improve your skill and have fun while doing it, I highly recommend coach Julio.

I highly recommend Coach Julio and PPA training to anyone who is trying to help thier child/ team transition to the next level as soccer players. He is an electrifying mentor that players are drawn to and feed off of his personality. The training is intense and focused and the kids cannot get enough. They cannot wait until the next session. Julio has spent several weeks with our boys and girls high school teams and his technical and tactical knowledge of the game and how he shares that with the kids has greatly improved our kids foot skills and playing abilities. If you have time to attend a training session with Coach Julio, you won't be disappointed.

My sons experience with Coach Julio and PPA Training has been nothing but positive. My nine year old has been a part of this program for some time now and he loves it. I have seen so much improvement in his technique and over all physicality. His footwork has improved immensely, his confidence is soaring, and he looks forward to every training session!
Falon Gilley
Absolute Pro! Two of my children are working with Julio and they look forward to each session. He pushes them every minute of the session and still keeps it fun for them. There foot work has improved immensely.
Noah Stretch

Julio has been working with my sons and he truly is the best. Julio picked up on specific areas where the boys need more work on to develop into better soccer players. Each session I saw an improvement and he motivates the boys to maximize their full potential. The boys love the intensity he brings !!!
Ann Hartshorn
Julio helped my son tremendously and we've seen a huge improvement after training with him. Highly recommend. He is so well-disciplined, knowledgeable and experienced. We only wish we had done it sooner!
Karen Chun
Julio, as a trainer is extremely knowledgeable. What seperates Julio from other coaches is his passion and his commitment to his students. From the advanced to beginner players, each child receives utmost attention. If you are looking for a soccer trainer, he's the man!
Jennifer Pesotine Tigue
Julio trained me during my college years at Keystone College and he improved my all around game from fitness to technique! He is a wonderful coach, and a phenomenal example for youth players.
Aadil Mendez
Former College Player & PT
As a player I believe Julio is a great coach not only because of his knowledge and skill in the game, but because he teaches with great technique and a personality that makes everything fun and exciting. Through the times of training with him I've seen immense improvement in my foot skill and comfortability with the ball. I highly recommend attending his training sessions if you're looking to improve as a player and push your soccer career to the next level.

How are these players being trained at this soccer camp?

Players are traditionally trained through simple repetition of skills and patterns. They will master these skills and patterns, however, when these go wrong, they don’t always have the ability to fix it on their own. They then become dependent on an outside source (coaches) to fix what’s going wrong instead of self correcting.

The way we train our players is through education and execution. Essentially, players become their own coaches. They will understand what they do, why they do it and how to do it, while getting the repetition of these skills and patterns. Players will become better at analyzing their own technical proficiency, game situations and have the ability to understand the good decisions and poor decisions, and will know how to fix these technical or tactical mistakes immediately. This is TRANSFORMATIONAL TRAINING.

What you and your kid(s) can expect when choosing PPA TRAINING’s Elite Soccer Camps:
