our passion is

Beautiful Game Development

Our Objective is to create an entity and environment that will optimize players’ potential to utilize the game of soccer in a way that helps them develop and achieve their goals physically, mentally, socially and vocationally.

We realize it is important to have an established curriculum for kids’ development in soccer and broader aspects of life (honing technique, learning forms/accomplishing competency levels, understanding tactics, understanding nutrition, understanding conditioning, understanding themselves and themselves in the broader context of team and discipline.

We use agility and conditioning training aids, goal-setting guides, interdisciplinary venues like futsal and sand environments, exotic technical training aids – JUGS, soccer-specific facilities, rooftop fields and keep practicing new, and exciting while always coaching fundamentals.

We want to breed success for the kids on and off the field and get them to take control of their own development.

And of course – have fun. We feel that trips to Europe and South America, camping, sailing, and arts are important and a great way to bond as a group.
