"My daughter, Sarah, came home raving about her fabulous soccer camp experience this summer. Full disclosure here, she’s not the gushing over anything type. Who would have thought lake & bubble activities could be so much fun? Coaches Jon Garber, Mikaela Howell and the rest of the amazing coaches are all exceptional in their fields. They truly care about the students and make it a point to provide everyone with the individual attention needed. Their enthusiasm, dedication & passion for teaching girls soccer is truly apparent. As a parent I feel this camp was run in a very efficient & organized manner. Without a doubt I would recommend this camp to others!"

"My daughter Sam is heading into HS and absolutely loved this camp! The coach to player ratio is the best you will get and the quality of coaching is top notch!  Sam is a goalie and she received the highest quality training.  The girls worked hard and still had time for tons of fun on the lake!"

"My daughter Eden came back from Franklin Pierce Residential camp feeling both confident and stronger in her ability to succeed  on the field. She felt it was a great balance of soccer and fun and the staff couldn't have been better."

"Moran has been attending Coach John's winter clinic for two years.  She enjoyed the clinics so much she asked to sign up for summer camp.  Her game has grown and she has learned so much with Coach Jon and his staff.  We look forward to more clinics and camps."

Jonathan Garbar has a unique way of developing and motivating players. He takes great pride in preparing players for the next level. Thats what he is known for.  Any player that can match his relentless work ethic will be successful! I fully endorse Jonathan Garbar and New Era NYC Girls Soccer Academy.  I'm looking forward to watching all the great players that will come from this academy.

Many are the positive characteristics I could write about Coach Garbar. I have known this successful soccer coach for almost six months, and he has proven to be a very organized result-driven professional in the field. It is clear he strives for success and player development. Every single player he works with knows what has to be done in order to achieve success. In addition, I was impressed with the professionalism and respect with which he treats his athletes.  It truly is second to none. Therefore, If you want to experience a high-level-intense-training soccer session with an organized-respectful mindset coach, I would advise you to meet Jonathan Garbar and prepare yourself to train with one of the very best soccer coaches I have ever had the privilege of working with.

Anyone fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with coaches Jon Garbar and Mikaela Howell will understand why they are National Champions! Their ability to develop the complete player is extraordinary. Players are certain to develop technically, tactically, psychologically, and physically in their soccer program. I wholeheartedly support and endorse New Era NYC Girl's Soccer Academy for the next generation of female soccer players!!

"The Franklin Pierce summer camp was everything that we would hoped it would be. For the serious soccer player it was challenging, gave insite on other aspects of the game to help prepare my daughter for the next level. She hopes to attend again next year."

“Gabby and I had a fantastic time at the Summer Session of the Girls Soccer Academy.  The coaches were tremendous.  Not only were they skilled instructors but they fostered a positive environment for all of the girls.  My daughter liked being with girls of all ages as well. The grounds were beautiful and the kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming in the lake were an extra bonus.  Exceptional coaching and fantastic opportunity for my U11 daughter.  We look forward to seeing you next year”

I have had the privilege of working with Jonathan Garbar on several occasions. These occasions have encountered dealing with  players of all ages and levels. He has the ability to adapt his coaching methodology to not only youth players but players of national team calibre also. During my experiences with Jonathan it is  evident that he has tremendous insight to player development. His patient demeanor and extensive knowledge serve as a great foundation for player development. His organizational skills and vision allow him to naturally progress players at a relative pace ensuring he brings the best out each player. While dedicated to personal excellence, Jonathan is not an arrogant or affected person.  Rather, he is a leader by positive example and he endeavors to bring those around him up to his estimable level.  As a National team and NCAA I Collegiate coach, I would be hard pressed to recall anyone whom I would recommend as highly as Jonathan.
