Coaching Philosophy

-All of our training drills and tactics come directly from the UEFA Pro and Coerver curriculum European model. These training methods are used by top teams in Europe as well as the top MLS Academy Programs in the country such as NY Redbulls and represent the latest findings in the technical, tactical and psychological aspects of the game and individual player development. The program is designed to give dedicated and talented players the training and experience needed to reach the highest levels of the game.
-Player and team development as a whole is our number one priority. I want to be clear that at this age we are not a team that is chasing wins but rather focused on the future of our players and team. That said, our results speak for themselves as we have stood toe to toe and beaten some of the best teams in our age group in the state from the hotbeds of youth soccer talent out of Miami/South Florida, Tampa, and Orlando as the skills taught individually and as a unit do translate to success on the field.
Typical activities featured in the training sessions include:
  • Technical/coerver training: shooting, ball control, dribbling, passing etc.
  • Tactical training: attacking and defensive positioning.
  • Physical training: speed work, agility and resistance etc.
  • Strategic training: match pace, pressure of playing, "reading the game," teamwork, shifting as a unit defensively and when attacking etc.
  • Mental coaching: routines, preparation, controlling emotions in adverse situations etc.
  • Positional training: corners, spaces, blocking, set pieces etc.
