The Academy is synonymous with quality. We are strictly dedicated to producing soccer players of the highest caliber and grooming young boys to become responsible citizens. In order to provide the best coaching, the Academy hires only those coaches who have, themselves, played soccer at a competitive level. All our coaches go through a six-week training program where they learn the Academy’s curriculum and the fundamentals of coaching youth soccer players. Our coaches are certified with the West Coast Region Football Academies Association Grassroots Coaching Certificate.
