Daniel Cross is at the forefront of youth soccer, and provides some of the most sophisticated and professional coaching in the US. Over the last 10 years of knowing Dan, I have been impressed with the way he conducts himself during every session, and plans thoroughly to get the best out of his players. Grass Roots Soccer is an exciting new venture that I have no doubt will provide local communities with affordable elite coaching.

Daniel is part of the new generation of professional coaches. He delivers a first class learning experience for his students which fosters a love for the game and an expectation of personal individual responsibility. I would recommend Grassroots Soccer Academy to anyone serious about taking their game to the next level.

I had the opportunity to coach against Dan when he was a center back in our conference. I was more than glad to see him graduate and then become an assistant coach with us here. He was that important to his team and that much of a thorn in our side. Dan was a composed and intelligent leader as a player and that carried over to his coaching.

Marc Colwell Illinois Institute of Technology Men's Soccer Head Coach

My daughter loves these clinics and camps. She signs up for every one that she possibly can. Dan Cross is a truly fantastic coach; his clinics are carefully thought out, challenging and fun.Her soccer skills have developed enormously through Dan's coaching and she has enjoyed every minute.
