The Triumph Academy Way!

The mission of Triumph Soccer Academy is to develop players' mind, body and character through a professional and organized, content-rich curriculum that emphasizes the “four pillars of soccer,” (technical, tactical, physical and mental components of every soccer player), as well as leadership qualities, founded on techniques that are known to be successful around the world. Triumph’s practice sessions offer creative and challenging soccer activities and low player-to-professional coach/trainer ratios. For each training session, the material and objectives pursued on the soccer field are guided by a variety of standards modeled by United States Soccer Federation and the Olympic Development Program. All teams will be taught to play with a style that eliminates kick ball and focuses on a fluid style of possession. Our goal will promote confidence in players by giving them the freedom to not be afraid to make mistakes.

What is the Triumph Academy?
