Part of our vision is to train, develop, qualify and support more innovative coaches who are excellent teachers of:

  • The game of football itself, including technique and decision making
  • The values that we hope to see our young players take into the rest of their lives

Our ultimate objective is to create a coaching environment that encourages young players to develop their technique, creativity and understanding of the game in a friendly arena with a family atmosphere, while learning and developing values and interpersonal skills that are vital in the outside world.

In summary, we teach our coaches to coach the whole person and not just the footballer.
