Training Philosophy

Player Centric

The player must be placed at the central point of learning!

Our focus must always remain on the technical, tactical, physical and mental development of the individual player. Every child that enters our program is expected to leave our program not only a better player, but more importantly a better person. The player's academic education must work "hand-in-hand" with their learning as a player.

We are an individual skills development company that places emphasis on development of the individual. We emphasize individual creativity and game intelligence of our individual players over regimented team structures and team results.

Long-Term Vision

We aim to provide young Canadian players with similar soccer training experiences to other young players in Europe. Our training model is European academy based and we look to develop our own players "in-house" within our own community-based programs and prepare them for our elite programs at older ages.

We have a long-term vision with respect to developing young players. It takes 10,000 hours to develop an elite athlete and we try to attract young players and families who recognize and are committed to this long-term approach. Not all our players will strive to play the game at the elite level, but we do want to provide them with the skills to enjoy the game more at the level they wish to play at.

Multiple Pathways

We provide multiple pathways! We do not own players in our programs. Our role is to develop and move along our players to higher levels of play and to assist them in their "soccer journey". We must continue to add additional player pathways such as Wolves FC, US Scholarship, MLS academies, Provincial programs and OPDL play in the near future. We are always there to assist our players that move onwards and upwards along the way........once a 1v1 player......always a 1v1 player!
