Core pillars of 

F.A.S.T.

F.itness

​We use  functional training to develop  strength & endurance through high-intensity compound training. Equally important is mental fitness where athletes are pushed to the limit to reach their potential.

A.thleticism

​We have a long-term approach and focus on the total athlete development.  We designed training to improve the fundamentals of balance, coordination & agility. We use dynamic & complex movement patterns to elevate athletic performance and enhance the mind/body connection.  

S.peed

​We focus on 3 types of speed: 

   1. Physical speed

   2. Mental speed (processing)

   3. Game speed.

All three are interconnected, but are taught uniquely in training. 

T.echnique

​We teach and refine correct technique to achieve ball mastery and improve physical mechanics through positive muscle memory. Learning correct technique now reduces future corrective measures. 

MISSION

To elevate individual athletes to achieve their maximum potential through demanding, rigorous & high intensity training.

 

US

We are not a soccer club. Our aim is on individual performance. We offer one of the most complete supplemental & preparatory training programs for players ranging from beginner to elite. Programs are designed to improve individual player performance in these four core pillars: Fitness, Athleticism, Speed, & Technical proficiency. We apply complex & compound training methods in a high intensity environment that will specifically target these core pillars for each individual player. Deeper development in these four elements will drive players to perform and succeed at a higher level. We accelerate individual development in players who are looking to achieve more and are willing to apply themselves to rigorous training. We see the most success in players who arrive with these positive qualities: mental fortitude, attitude, discipline and commitment. 

HOW

We keep our training groups small to maximize individual development. We offer class sizes ranging from individual to group training to meet your budgeting needs. We offer a variety of programming options for athletes of all ages and abilities. We provide feedback to find programs that are best suited to the individual. 

Each class will emphasize fundamentals in ball mastery through repetition and applying correct technique to cement muscle memory. Players will be exposed to complex dynamic movement at varying speeds to improve athleticism. Ball work using all areas of the foot on both feet will build confidence. Exploring  new skills to increase creativity will energize the player to crave more time with the ball.  The mind and body connection to the ball as an extension of the foot, along with game intelligence, puts the player on a path to becoming complete.

Preparatory seasons (OFF SEASON - summer & winter) -  focus on preparing players for their club, high school or college soccer teams. These preparatory programs will have an additional emphasis on fitness, speed, quickness & endurance.

 

Supplemental seasons (IN SEASON - fall & spring) -  focus on supplemental training to enhance player performance and improve injury prevention. Our aim with players who are in season is to refine & enhance their skills to succeed at game speed. We equip players with tools to handle the challenges of a heavy in-season workload both physically & mentally. 

EXPECTATIONS

We expect that participants have a desire to be better than they were when they arrived to the field. Participants will bring their best effort and attitude. Training will not always be easy, but players should be up for any challenge presented to them technically, physically and mentally.
