Head Coaches-Brian McKinney- NSCAA National Diploma 

Age Group Objectives:

o Provide appropriate competition, travel and training to game ratio
o Encourage creative freedom in training & in games
o Create free player movement within the age group and club 
o Reduce fear of failure, by eliminating the pressure of winning games with more emphasis on individual player development and focusing on appropriate competition rather than making the competition the sole focus
o Training focuses on developing technically gifted, versatile, and creative players, plus the fundamentals that are essential to long term development.
o The age groups will be overseen by a nationally licensed coach, a nationally licensed age group coordinator and assistant parent coaches
o Develop players that love to play the game, have a desire to improve and learn and are able to compete to the best of their ability as they get older
