Join our INICIADO SOCCER PROGRAM this spring. Iniciado, meaning "Start" in Portugese, introduces players to soccer teaching and building the foundation. This program is designed to get players ready for competitive soccer at the U11 age group. Our main focus is to make sure players first have FUN. We have designed a program that first develops the individual player who will then complement the team setting.
We are Portland’s Premier Technical Soccer Training Development Program. Players that are selected via tryout, join one of the U7 to U19 teams and will participate in Oregon Youth Soccer sanctioned leagues.
The Training Academia is open to all players 6 years and older. The Academia’s curriculum is designed to focus on developing the individual player's technical abilities and touch. It is also designed to develop confidence on the ball by teaching players how to maneuver in and around tight spaces under pressure.
Players have the opportunity to travel to Brazil and Europe to train with professional club teams such as Fluminense, Porto. Training with these teams exposes players to a faster paced game which accelerates their development. While in Brazil and Europe, players gain valuable life experiences on and off the pitch.
