As an Academy, our focus is on long-term individual player development. We strive to give each player the skill set, knowledge and experience necessary to decide for themselves where, and to what extent, they wish to take their soccer careers. As coaches, our goal is to step away and be able to say “you make the decision”. Becoming a well-rounded and successful soccer player at the highest levels of competition requires a balance of mental, physical, and emotional factors, all of which must be fostered throughout a young player’s development.
The long-term goal is to develop players who have a lifelong passion and love for the game. The VIS Development Framework aims to build an effective structure for soccer development by following three main objectives.
