First Shot Soccer (FSS)

“I have had the great fortune to work with Bobby and First Shot Soccer on both the High School level and the Club level. As the Head coach at Indian Hills HS, Bobby worked with our girls and helped us to a league and state championship! My U10 club team was trained by First Shot soccer and just completed an undefeated season outscoring our opponents 43-4! Bobby and Mike do an outstanding job with the girls and are always professional. Our teams loved being trained by them!!!"

Pascack Hills High School


“The training I have received from Bobby and the rest of the First Shot staff has made it possible for me to play soccer at the college level. Their knowledge and experience have made a better player but also given me more passion for the sport.”

“In 2004 I changed my team training to First Shot Soccer after many training failures. Each failed training program potentially hindered the children on my team the best opportunity for their soccer skill development. Over the course of a season or even a year that would be a major impact to individual and team development. Since switching I have never looked back.  First Shot provides the consistency that children need for development.  Consistency in having the same trainer for the season or over a course of years is essential to our success. It is the consistency in the training methodology and skill development that provides positive results.  My previous experience with large established training organizations is a total lack of consistency. First Soccer has been instrumental in my team’s success over the years and has allowed my team to play and compete in the fall ‘08 season in the Premier Division."

“I’ve worked with professional soccer trainers before and always felt almost satisfied. With First Shot Soccer, I was thrilled – the training is consistent, the learning environment is competitive and our boys improved technically, tactically, physically and their confidence level is through the roof. I couldn’t be happier!”
David Hewitt,
Wayne Boys and Girls Club, Panthers Manager​


“Over the years, my players have trained with different trainers - both individually and as a squad. However, First Shot Soccer and Bobby Calderon's dedicated team of trainers is the only training group where I have seen a complete training experience provided to the players. Developing both technical and tactical skills, promoting fitness, fostering team cohesiveness, and working with players to improve on individual execution and performance.  I am particularly happy with how Michael Calderon of First Shot has helped my guys move quickly up the flighting ranks. They continue to get better and better thanks to Mike's instruction.”
