During the past two years, I have built a trusting relationship with Coach Collins. He has provided my son an opportunity to continue his high school education in the United States. He has also assisted with the college recruitment process. I know that he has a true care and concern for all the students that he works with.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for bringing your team down to our one day camp. We were all very impressed with the talent you are working with. Thank you for being so organized, as it allowed the camp to run very smooth. You have done an outstanding job coaching, mentoring, and preparing the athletes you work with for the next stage of their lives. You are running a great program, keep up the good work.

Mr. Collins was very instrumental in the process of helping my son in his quest for college choices. There wasn't a time that my husband or I didn't reach out to Mr. Collins, with questions or concerns, he didn't have time to answer. This is our only son, we wanted him in good hands. We wanted to make sure that we didn't miss any opportunities in the recruiting process and putting him with a good company, that knows the recruiting process, was very important. Our son had to also be comfortable with Team First, with that, it truly paid off for our son. I would recommend Team First to anyone that is looking for a trustworthy, honest and sincere company that looks out for your child and their future college sports endeavors. Again, "Thank you" so much for everything.

Team First offered me cultural, academic and athletic tools needed to achieve success in the United States. Coach Collins established a trusting relationship with my parents, which enabled me to pursue my goal of playing college soccer with their support. I would like to thank Team First for providing me with the guidance needed to accomplish my goals.
