THE ACADEMY

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

As a youth soccer organization that strives to support the concepts of "total futbol" in terms of player development and its methodology, it is a must that we properly educate our coaching staff. This is accomplished by immersing them in: the "total futbol" philosophy through coaching clinics and internships both here and in Barcelona, by adhering to mandated USSF coaching standards and policies, through our exclusive Coaches On-line Tutorial where our registered coaches get access to our amassed library of curriculum's and videos, as well as to mandate that these principles and methodologies are utilized by all teams within our Academy.  

In the spirit of supporting these soccer strategies, we have created an Elite Developmental Academy Program that provides the following:

A FUNDED PROGRAM:

• Achieved through Corporate and Individual Sponsors as well as fundraising events that eliminates the "Pay to Play" structure of youth sports.  
• A clear identity via the "total futbol" philosophy that is taught by all of our coaching staff.
• A homogeneous training and coaching regimen throughout all age levels.
• Rigorous standards for both coaches and players alike.
• An education based tutorial program for all of our registered players.
• Top of the line facilities, all in one location. 

 
PLAYER QUALIFICATIONS:
 

The Academy Program is for extremely advanced and competitive players that possess a high soccer IQ, technically sound, excel in a very competitive environment as well as the ability to commit to a year round rigorous regimen of training and game play. NOTE: There are limited spots available.
