Program Overview

Our program is designed to guide all students to improve as individuals physically, mentally, and spiritually through the sport of soccer. The main thing is to teach how to glorify God in their actions, words, and character by using the gifts that God has given them. We are committed to acting in a manner that reflects Christ. How we act off the field is just as important as how we act on the field. Our main physical goal is to improve ourselves throughout the season. We can do this by consistent practice and competing with others that help push us to compete at a higher level.  


This program can be used for self-improvement, as well as, competing at a higher level. The coaching staff is committed to assisting each individual with their goals, alongside the encouragement from their parents and peers.
