Trust The Process
When I first started mad skillz I remember thinking mo’s training was so much fun, I loved the environment of the training and the training itself did so much for me. Mo also made me feel welcome right away and is so good at getting to know every player. Over the years I spent with Mad skillz, my first touch and ball control developed so much. I felt more comfortable dribbling at speed and learned so many skills by training with Mo. During this time I was also playing for Anthem which was an amazing experience for both the futsal and social aspect. Each Sunday I loved going to training and just getting to play. Having an awesome futsal team and winning some tournaments was cool too. I am so thankful for Mo and Mad skillz and Anthem, he helped me develop the skills and technical abilities I needed in order to continue to play at the highest level. Thanks Mo!!

“Madskillz has helped me a ton with my development and my technical skills have improved a ton working with Mo. I love the environment that Mo creates with the players and how he always pushes them to be their best, while also having fun. I also loved doing Anthem when I was younger, we had a great team and won a lot of futsal tournaments. The practices were great and it was super beneficial to train with the best players around. One of my favorite things about Madskillz is how it helps your creativity on and off the ball and I love learning new skills every week. I also love doing 1v1s with Mo and beating him most of the time🤣🤝”

“Mad Skillz is a program that I have been with since the beginning. From when it started in a little room in Roseville, and continuing to be a part of such a special development to the place it’s at today. Mad Skillz is a place where you can go to grow, it is one of the friendliest environments to play in and learn in. Mo Ruiz is one of the best coaches I’ve ever trained with, he is a coach that will support you through anything and push you to be your best every single day. The skills that you can take away from these training are top tier and I was 100% certain that after every training with Mad Skillz, I came out better than when I stepped in the building. It truly is an incredible company and I as an athlete am beyond grateful for everything I learned there and the player it helped shape me into.”

“Mad Skillz has helped me develop my technical skills and improve my overall game on the field. The fun environment and close relationship I have with Mo makes me look forward to every week of training. Playing with Mad Skillz for 8 years improved my speed of play and overall technical ability!”
“When I first came to madskillz, I was really behind in the technical area of my game compared to other players. I had never been part of such a fast paced, high energy, and fun training environment. Once I started doing the weekly sessions and practiced what I learned outside of the sessions as well, my development rocketed. In my game today, one of my strengths is my ball control, and I owe all my confidence on the ball to mad skills. I am so thankful that I found mad skills when I did because it truly shaped me into the player I am today!”
I had an amazing experience with Mo! I came in very uncomfortable and not confident because of an ankle injury and feared doing small things. Madskillz training helped me to become confident with my playing. I worked extremely hard and Mo pushed me everyday to get stronger and better technically. Now at TCU I’ve been able to help my team towards the success of being a top 10 team

Here is my note on my mad skillz experience: Mad skillz has been with me through my whole soccer career. It is unlike any other soccer environment. Working with Mo and the other trainers has pushed me to work on skills that make you stand out and apart from other soccer players. Mo’s heart and passion for the game and upcoming generations is genuine and real which makes training so fun and exciting. To be a part of Mad Skillz is being apart of a community full of love for the game, hard work, competition, and above all fun!! I’m really thankful to have had this family throughout my soccer career❤️🔥”

Mo took me in at 8 years old in the middle of a season. Mo got the most out of me as a player and as a person. He inspired me to be a great player and teammate all the time no matter what. The lessons Mo has taught me have stuck with me till now. I am now 18 years old playing collegiate soccer and I continued to refer back to and follow lessons learned by Mo. He has a great personality and heart that I will always remember.
I have and always will give credit to Mo Ruiz for helping me become the player I am today. From Cal Blues to Anthem Futsal… Mo has always helped me in my soccer career. Even despite the distance I am away from Mo, he always stays in contact with me and checks in and congratulates me on my continued successes. Along with myself, he has also helped my two younger sisters in their careers. My youngest sister, Sylvie Thompson, loves going to Mo and always makes our parents (or me) drive her to see Mo because of the HUGE impact he makes on her performance. Thank you Mo Ruiz for all you do for me, my family and MANY other families ❤️

Training at MadSkillz has shaped me into such a better player technically and tactically. I started training at MadSkillz in middle school and have grown so much to get to the point where I am now. I learned so many new skills and began to think faster and step up my game to the next level. After years of training there, I was given the opportunity to work there and train the kids at the level I was once at. I love seeing how happy the kids are to come to training and it is so amazing seeing how well they improved within weeks. It makes me extremely happy that the little kids are able to look up to me as a role model because I started where they were. Training/working at madskillz has truly been one of my greatest opportunities and I’m so thankful for everything that Coach Mo has helped me with.
