Ball on Grass

Long Term Player Development

  • Player Centered-Coach Guided-Sport Science-Administration-Evaluation

  • Heavy emphasis on developing technical skills with an age-appropriate curriculum from proven European models
    Strong focus on psychomotor skills, balance, coordination, speed & agility, movement acquisition, spatial awareness
    We ensure that players are experiencing success, feel empowered to express themselves creatively, feel free to make mistakes, and are having FUN

  • Winning is not our main priority, but developing your child to their fullest potential with self-confidence and a positive self-esteem IS our main priority

  • Teaching and modelling fundamental values and life lessons are extremely important to us

  • We aim to develop well-rounded players who can dominate games with attacking soccer skills while enjoying every minute of their experience

Season Dates and Practice Frequency

  • Spring season runs approximately from March - May

  • Fall season runs approximately from mid August-November/December (depending on league, Norcal State Cup placement)

  • Practices will be two sessions per week (1.5 hours in duration), with an average of one game a weekend

Travel, Expectations and Cost

  • Away games will be primarily played in San Francisco and along the Peninsula, with some games further south.

  • While we would love for our players to prioritize soccer all year round, we understand and encourage them to participate in other sports.  We expect that in the Fall, soccer is their top priority, and in the Spring, we want soccer to be a high priority but understand it may not be the main priority.

  • Costs: Approximately $1100 per season.  This estimated cost covers full-time professional coaching/training/administration, league fees, club dues, and fields.  Please note that this does not cover uniform costs.


  • Self-esteem: We look at our players’ athletic endeavor as an opportunity to build individual self-esteem combined with a sense of collective purpose, before any other consideration.

  • Player-centric: The club operates exclusively for the benefit of our youth players and not coaches, managers or parents. Our focus is first and foremost on helping them reach their potential as soccer players and in becoming responsible young adults.

  • Honoring the game: We always demonstrate integrity and show respect for the referees, coaches, players, and parents of both SCU teams and our opposition.

  • Community: We aim to impart a sense of teamwork and community in all of our players.

  • Life Long: We take a long term view of our player development. We believe in preparing them to play in High School or in college if they so desire. Most importantly, we want to impart a lifelong love of soccer.
