The weather was amazing this past Saturday when my son and I attended the first ever Soccer Development Showcase held at E.C. Lawrence Park in Chantilly, VA.

This great event was hosted by Conteh Soccer Academy which is ran by former D.C. United player Abdul Conteh. Showing off some of the latest soccer training aids for players and coaches were 7-Touch Training, OHLEsport, Corpus Training Devices, and Global Goal US.

My son had a blast trying out some of these great products and didn't want to leave. From practicing his touch on the OHLEsport Soccer Machine Training Aide to trying to make "header goals" into the top of the Global Goal, his love for soccer was on full display, along with his Mohawk.

The vendors did a great job demonstrating the capabilities of their training aids and were excellent while interacting with my son.

My son is already looking forward to testing out his new 7-Touch Trainers and helping his old man review his newest soccer gear (review coming soon)!

Hopefully this event will continue to grow in attendance and many more vendors will attend the showcase in the future, bringing their creative soccer training aides to players, parents, and coaches of Virginia.
