Quote as to why the staff member got involved with Pro Prep:

“My friend was receiving workouts from Pro Prep and since my soccer had been cancelled due to Covid-19, I had been struggling with staying motivated. I decided to message DJ Lalama and ask if I’d be able to join the program. He was super nice and helpful, and asked me what he needed to do to help me succeed. He made workouts that I’d do four times a week and since starting that, I can definitely see a difference in my mindset and willingness to push myself.”

Quote as to what excited the staff member about working with Pro Prep:

“My first-time coaching was 2 years ago with the Bonivital Mini Soccer Academy and I loved it. Having the opportunity to coach again with Pro Prep Academy is an amazing opportunity and I can’t wait to get started! I am very excited to be able to work with Desiree, DJ, Andrew and help young athletes push themselves to be the best they can be.”
