At 10 years old, Josh Goodwin told his dad that he would like to pursue a career in soccer. His father agreed to support his dream – provided he put in the work.
Half a decade later, the 15-year-old is still following his dream with a strong soccer work ethic, putting time into ball control, footwork, speed, and agility training on top of practices and games with his high school and travel team.
Not one to shy away from a training challenge (he reached gold in this juggling challenge), in October he decided to start working on an element that is often overlooked – his mental game. Josh has been training with the Soccer IntelliGym, a computer-based training program two times a week to improve his soccer intelligence skills and on-field performance.
“I really wanted to improve on my movement,” Josh says.
“I’ve improved in one-touch play, being able to read where the next play should go and just positioning overall,” he says. “From my experience, I’ve seen incredible advancements in just over six months.”
