PLAYER PROFILE  

  • Highly motivated, passionate, and ambitious 
  • Demonstrate higher levels of mastery of the key qualities of a player (as outlined by US Soccer) 
  • Ability to read/understand the game and technical proficiency are more important than being able to physically/athletically dominate due to earlier physical maturation. We would rather take a smaller, temporarily "less effective" player who shows long-term potential than one who has average or below-average technique and soccer IQ but who temporarily dominates due to his/her size and athleticism.
