Philosophy

Every player can become a master of the ball and the pitch. We achieve ball mastery and high game IQ through regular extended practice with the ball.  We build deep personal confidence in our abilities through trial, error and adapting to the challenges and opportunities we find on the field.  All of this immersion in the game will allows us to  build a fluent cultural understanding of the beautiful game.

What we do

Philosophy

Every player can become a master of the ball and the pitch. We achieve ball mastery and high game IQ through regular extended practice with the ball.  We build deep personal confidence in our abilities through trial, error and adapting to the challenges and opportunities we find on the field.  All of this immersion in the game will allows us to  build a fluent cultural understanding of the beautiful game. 

It's a simple philosophy, focus on training and competing in highly competitive tournaments.  This is in stark contrast to the "youth development" landscape that is prevalent in the United States, the focus is on "travel".  In the traditional model the focus is on "traveling" long distances to play weekly games, where players get few touches on the ball and as a result players skill development and game IQ are stagnated.  From all of our experiences and observations we have seen the traditional model as a handicap to developing players that can compete with their counterparts on the global stage.

We have three simple objectives:

  1. Provide players with world-class training that is comparable to any of the leading global soccer development powerhouses.

  2. Cultivate an environment where flair and creativity can flourish.

  3. Develop at least seven players that will lead the first US Men Soccer team to win the World Cup.
