The academy's philosophy is quite simply to build on the powerful legacy of the university's championship soccer teams - the Golden Bears and Pandas - by bringing the outstanding skills of the coaches and players to the Edmonton communities, to enhance the skill set of enthusiastic and talented young soccer players in the 7-18 age groups.
We work in a dynamic way where players are placed in a decision making training environment.
We seek to develop consistent players who are autonomous - who think, grow and learn.
Players need something sustainable/common in order to become mature and to grow as a person not just as a player
All decisions around players are taken in order to develop them. The player stops being a means for the benefit of the coach/program and becomes an end in him/herself.
What is in the best interest of the player guides our actions.
When you work in this way, the player becomes the reference.
