WV United 03G & 03G White / WV United 04

Team/Coaching Philosophy

Our curriculum is centered around the development of the player. We will use challenging yet achievable age appropriate training methods designed to allow each child to progress at their own rate and thoroughly enjoy the whole experience of learning the skills key to success in playing ‘the beautiful game’.

We will actively cultivate a friendly, supportive environment allowing for creativity, spontaneity, self expression and learning from mistakes.

The experience is fun, productive, and inspiring for the players. We want them to love the game!
