How The Academy Started
Hey, it's Coach Ben from Nabers Soccer Academy. Firstly, I wanted to welcome you to our website. If you are on this page, it's telling me that you're interested in possibly joining our private or small group training programs...and we can't wait to help your child!

Before parents apply to our program, I feel that it's important to share my story about WHY Nabers Soccer Academy was started and HOW we ended up helping over 3,500 players from San Antonio, Texas since 2009. 

In 2009, after graduating from college on a full soccer scholarship...I decided to do what everyone normally does after graduation - get a job. With my degree in exercise sports science, I knew I wanted to be involved with sports in some capacity.

I began searching far and wide to find something that I was interested in... This led me to taking an internship at a gym to become a personal trainer who helped athletes get faster, stronger and more athletic. In my head, this was a "perfect" job for me...

Little did I know, my life was about to change forever. 

A couple of months into the internship, I realized that this "job" wasn't fulfilling. I've always believed that it's very important doing something enjoyable that brings meaning to my life. It took a few months for me to completely realize this, but once I started to envision the next 10 years of my life - something clicked...and every idea came back to soccer. Soccer gave me everything, and I wanted to find a way to give back to the sport. 

I remember this like this was yesterday, my phone rang - and it was a parent that I knew who was interested in me helping their son develop his technical skills. I agreed to help him over a 2 month period and he saw great results by simply being consistent in training and following his "soccer homework" on his own during the week. 

During my upcoming training sessions, I began to realize how much joy it gave me helping soccer players achieve their goals...and I knew there was more players out there that needed personalized help. I made it my mission to help these players. On July 23rd, 2009 - Nabers Soccer Academy was born!

We started from very humble beginnings - literally I would drive to homes and train players in their backyards for free. I did everything I could to build a great reputation in the city of San Antonio and the surrounding areas. The word started to spread, and the results kept getting better and better. 

Everything we've ever accomplished at Nabers Soccer Academy is due to the great players and parents who have been part of our program. 

Year after year, we've mentored players to find success on the field and in the classroom. 

Over 180 players have received college soccer scholarships through Ben's mentorship.  

The vision of Nabers Soccer Academy hasn't changed since day 1 - we strive to help players in a private 1on1 or small group setting no matter the level of the player or the club/team the child plays for. 

Since 2009, our company has helped over 3,500 youth soccer players in San Antonio, New Braunfels, Boerne, Austin, Uvalde and the surrounding areas. 

We accept players and families who are highly committed. 

For that reason, Coach Ben only works with a select number of players each month...

So, if you've made it this far - you're probably wondering...
