Player Excellence

Creating Opportunities

For Players to Excel

Our Player Excellence Program was inspired by the belief that empowered, well-rounded individuals are advantaged on the soccer field and in life.  It’s why the program provides players with opportunities to improve both their soccer skills and their leadership abilities.

Soccer Excellence

Our immersive, next-level training provides each player with the opportunity to improve their game outside of their team activities.   For players who are serious about maximizing their on-field potential, Soccer Excellence is a bridge between where they are and where they want to be. 

Soccer Excellence is available to all our 9U to 19U players, and includes our signature Street Soccer, Skilz Performance Training, and Velocity Training options.

 Soccer Excellence schedule coming soon.

I-Mentor

I-Mentor provides current and former players 16 years old or older with an opportunity to mentor our younger players while also being mentored by a senior coach, themselves.  I-Mentor opportunities vary by team and role, but all mentorships are designed to help players learn foundational leadership concepts.  As such, players who participate in I-Mentor create practice plans, lead drills, help with elements of team management, and perform other coaching activities instrumental to their success.

I-Mentor players are paid $12/hr. (or provided with certification of volunteer hours as participant prefers), depending on role. However, every I-Mentor role IS challenging and, given many of our I-Mentor participants work directly with our younger players, we are highly selective about who we accept into the program. As such, participation is contingent upon a number of factors, including passing a background check, having a good GPA, and attending our Coaching Excellence Fundamentals course. 

Current I-Mentoring opportunities coming soon.

street soccer

Street Soccer is played on a U10 field and guided by our coaches. It is designed to allow players to “just play” the game in a safe, supervised, and minimally interrupted manner. In this way, players can do what they enjoy the most – play soccer – while getting just enough instruction to help them improve their game. Coaches help create teams and all games are played without a referee to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques. Street Soccer is open to all our U8 – U19 players and requires signup
