School Of Excellence

The School of Excellence provides intense technical training for players born in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 on one of the finest training facilities in Colorado. The sessions are run by a highly qualified staff of coaches with college and national team experience, high license qualification, and Premier club experience to provide the best training environment to maximize players’ development.

The curriculum focuses primarily on technical development.  Each session also incorporates speed and agility exercises and ends with small sided games.

The School of Excellence provides a professional level training environment for any young aspiring soccer player. Each player will leave the school fully understanding the importance of training hard but also having fun in the process.

The School of Excellence Program is open to ALL players born in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 players who have an eye toward competitive soccer or just a serious desire to improve their skills. The program consists of five 90 minute training sessions that focus primarily on technical development in small group situations. The SOE curriculum has a proven success record and is designed to teach the advanced skills required to be successful at the highest levels of the game.  If a player completes the 2 year progressive curriculum, they will be taught the correct fundamentals of dribbling, 1v1 attacking moves, passing and receiving, turns with the ball, and balls out of the air. In addition to the high level training, the SOE participants will also get a full SOE Adidas uniform which will include a jersey, shorts, socks, jacket and ball. We are excited to have Adidas, the leading soccer provider, team up with the leading academy program in the state to offer a professional training environment. All SOE participants must wear the Adidas kit to SOE trainings.
