About Us

Hup is the Dutch word for GO!

Hup is commonly associated with all things positive and energetic around the beautiful game and these qualities are at the heart of Hup Soccer Skills. Within a challenging and fun environment, we endeavour to instil positivity and enthusiasm in our players and encourage them to apply our values and skills into their game and everyday life.

Our current players and parents have this to say:

"Our family selected Mark and his team at 'HUP Soccer Skills' to coach our children for the following reasons: 

  1. A focus on development over winning.
  2. A consistent drive towards well-rounded, technically competent soccer players.
  3. Both of our girls describe fun, high quality training."   Chris and Jennifer


"My daughter has really enjoyed the training sessions she has done with Hup over the past 12 months. Your ability to get results while maintaining a fun and enjoyable environment are a testament to you as a coach. my daughter loves your direct approach to things that she needs to improve on, and she appreciates the way you support and encourage her. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you!" Helen 

"Mark' coaching has enabled my daughter's game to continuously progress. The one on one attention, skill specific training, and feedback is not something you often get from a team training. It’s awesome that Mark (and his fellow coaches) are willing to share their knowledge, experience and skills to run sessions tailored to an individuals skill needs in order to help them achieve their goals."

Our coaches are passionate about football and they value the rewards of seeing players develop and improve.
