what makes us different..

SOCCER PHILOSOPHY

“We try to get our players to feel the enjoyment of keeping the ball away from the opponent and treat the ball like something very precious that you do not want to give away easily.


We like to rest with the ball, we like to move the opponent from one side of the field to the other, we play to the spaces the opponent gives us, and we look for opportunities to break their lines of pressure.


We encourage our players to take risks with the ball, at the right time, in the right situations, within the right context, with responsibility.”

- Andres Deza

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

We seek to develop autonomous players, and our training environment reflects the demands necessary for players who can discover, experiment, and thrive in situations that require decision making in the context of the game. 

We train multiple age groups and genders at one time. All players are instructed according to our methodology and game model based on the moments and phases of the game.


We don’t have one head coach working with one age group – we have staff coaches who work with every player in the club and a lead coach for each age group. Each player benefits from having different perspectives and relationships with each of the coaches in the club. Each coach benefits from interacting with and caring for each player.


We compete at the highest possible level and expose our players to top college programs, youth national teams, international experiences, and professional opportunities

TECHNICAL PHILOSOPHY

We play a distinct style according to firm principles and a clear game methodology which is expressed similarly in each age group across the club.

We empower our people to think critically and solve problems, with courage, competency, and integrity.

Our way of playing and training is not easy. It can be challenging and uncomfortable at times. Players who thrive here choose this path because it takes patience, commitment, and attention to detail.

Ultimately, this is about being part of something bigger than yourself. Everyone in the club makes sacrifices for the greater good.
