Are Our Measure of Success
Our Player-first philosophy was built on 4, steadfast beliefs:
- Our players are the reason for our existence.
- Empowering our players is why we do what we do.
- Soccer provides a unique and ideal environment for teaching concepts that empower players to create their own success, both on and off the soccer field.
- It is our responsibility to help our players understand and realize their full potential.
Player-first drives everything we do from how we teach, challenge, and inspire our players, to how we play the game. It is the basis for our values, our culture, and it is the single greatest measure of our success.
Player-first isn’t just a shot in the dark. It is data-driven. Developed by experts in education, child psychology, sports science, fitness, nutrition, and of course, by world-class soccer experts.
Player-first is expressed to our players through three concepts: Passion, Skill, & Character. These concepts provide a framework for players of all ages to understand how they can reach their full potential both on and off the field. Players experience this philosophy throughout their time in our Club via our Player Excellence Program, their team practices, and their games.
