What We Do

As Professional Soccer Trainers at Soccer Specific Training, Kevin and Tommy work extensively with soccer players and coaches throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties.  They are fully immersed in all aspects of soccer at the Jersey Shore: team training, summer camps, individual training, small group training, and coaches’clinics. To Kevin and Tommy, soccer is not simply a sport, it is their craft and their passion. They are truly dedicated to helping players of all ages and stages learn, develop and EVOLVE. 


Why We Do It

Kevin and Tommy have been playing and coaching soccer together for over 15 years. They began as teammates on the Middletown Sonics, winning three State Championships and a Regional Championship. They both went on to play high school soccer in the Shore Conference and college soccer for Rutgers and Monmouth University. Soccer taught them about discipline, dedication, perseverance and teamwork. Soccer showed them the world, introduced them to lifelong friends, and provided them with an education. Through Evolve, Kevin and Tommy, hope to give back to the sport and the community that gave them so much.
