Meeting the Goals of our Athletes
Our training is designed to help with our athletes varied goals. Some athletes are here to make the provincial team with our recommendation process, some join for the professional atmosphere, some would like to get a scholarship and others are after a career as a professional soccer player.
Helping athletes navigate the NSCAA Clearing house, courses required, focusing on maintaining their GPA, preparing for the SAT/ACT exams through our knowledgebase and weekly emails. Discover how we help our athletes meet their goals by reading about our Standards, Training, Program Details, Compeition and showcase Tournaments. For those seeking a professional career we promote top athletes to our main sponsor in Rome (SS Lazio) and other professional teams in lower divisions.
With the support of our partners Eurostar offers value above and beyond what it costs to provide the service. This allows us to spend more on the program then we collect in tuition, making our program really attractive for those athletes looking for value in long term development. We focus on the long term objectives of our athletes which ranges from getting a scholarship to potentially playing professionally. This long term development focus brings more value to the experiences of youth soccer. All our athletes learn how to work hard at something, they learn how to keep trying and how to get backup which is an important lesson for everyone no matter the age. We help athletes set clear goals and measure athletes on their progress through our evaluation process.
Our mission is to prepare young soccer players for professional and/or collegiate opportunities by providing the highest quality of training and development from qualified coaching, quality facilities and superior equipment. We do this by providing year round long term development soccer programs for our athletes. Find out more about our coaches.Meet the entire team
