WHAT WE STAND FOR
Develop young leaders on and off the field who are conscious decision-makers by focusing on the mind and body.
Use soccer as a common ground to create a sustainable youth leadership ecosystem that will drive powerful community service and personal success.
I own my actions, I make no excuses.
I look beyond myself on and off the field.
I always have room for growth as a player and as a person.
I do what I say I am going to do.
I must earn what I want.
I treat people as they want to be treated.
What We Deliver
We believe in the possession-based methodology made famous by FC Barcelona and integrating this methodology with the FC Porto’s focus on developing creative, individual players who can stand out. We live in the US, we understand that we must develop players to be able to adapt to any and all environments. We are not dogmatic in our approach. Our focus is on developing players only. We are in constant pursuit of excellence to deliver the best and latest methodology and systems to help players in US and San Diego in particular to become the best they can. Through our Technical Directors and Board of Advisors we have access to the best practices and curriculum from professional European and South American youth academies. Our method is delivered authentically by multiple Directors of Coaching who were raised with these philosophies, and taught with consistency amongst our local coaching partners. This philosophy focuses on technique, defensive intensity, controlling the game, and playing the ball along the ground while promoting developing the individual player to stand out. It is creative and attacking, and described as a beautiful way to play.
We are about teaching good habits. To do so we emphasize attention to detail, technique, the formation of instincts, and create an ideal developmental environment where motivated players can train with other motivated players from around the area regardless of club affiliation. We further focus on developing players that fit the model of US Soccer. We deliver a progressive curriculum, with intense professional-like sessions, in a nuturing setting that lacks the pressure of winning but rather celebrates development. We encourage players to be accountable for their own progress and learn to self-motivate. We bring this to San Diego to support both local player and also local coach professional development.
We expose players to the European interpretation of the sport of soccer and way of life. We have access to European academies through our advisors and partners. We travel and train internationally to teach different ideas of living. Our players are exposed to fellow youth from all walks of life and from throughout Southern California.
We offer professional quality pitches and beautiful facilities throughout north San Diego County area, and professional services such as Speed and Agility, Sports Nutrition and Mental Performance Coaching. Here you will find a community of like-minded coaches and players from multiple different clubs throughout Southern California.
