The cornerstone of our curriculum is technical development. We utilize the Coerver Method of ball mastery and graduated pressure to build technical competence and play carefully selected games to build functional success.
We foster creativity by giving the players technical building blocks & encouraging bold actions in developmentally appropriate games. Our games are designed to be fun, challenging and to reward bravery and risk-taking.
Small group tactics and principles of play are taught in attack and defense by utilizing the structure of the many small sided games, which have made the Coerver Curriculum so unique and emulated throughout the soccer-playing world.
We value winning but not more than character and effort. We honor the game by paying due respect to players, parents, coaches and referees. Sportsmanship is emphasized to develop the whole person and not just the player.
