The Soccer Philosophy of Grande Sports Academy
Grande Sports Academy soccer philosophy seeks to attract, develop and prepare motivated student athletes with the skills needed to successfully face new challenges presented to them by soccer, academics and life. All resources are dedicated to nurturing the talents of each individual under our core values of honesty, integrity, respect, commitment, teamwork, sportsmanship and discipline. We strongly believe in these values and operate the Academy under the following tenets:
- Identify, develop and prepare student-athletes to be all they can be —personally, athletically and academically– and provide a foundation for success for them in all aspects of their lives so that each individual can achieve personal balance.
- Provide a safe family environment away from home that nurtures and develops the individual talents of each student athlete while instilling in them qualities of commitment, responsibility and teamwork.
- Create the finest youth soccer training environment in the nation using a development regimen created by one of the most experienced soccer staffs in the country–a staff comprised of former US Soccer National Team players with extensive Major League Soccer and international professional experience.
- Enhance the tactical and technical skills of our Academy athletes through competition against top rated national and international teams.
