About Author

SportsLab360 was founded in 2016 by Nick Manzoni and Thomas Poll. A recipient of seed funding from the Lorentzen Hatchery Program, we conceived and developed the program right from our college dorm room. Since then, we have experienced continued growth towards our mission through the support of additional entrepreneurial grants.


At SportsLab360, we wholeheartedly believe that a player should develop physically, technically, and psychologically. We also believe that the mental, specifically the soccer IQ component of a player's development is of equal importance. We spent some time searching the web, the soccer community, and other channels to see if we could find a program that specifically targeted tactical development, and we came up empty-handed; so, we took it upon ourselves to create an accessible, practical, organized, and easy to-use program focused entirely on tactical development.
