To build a thriving community of families, players, coaches, and partners who actively live and promote the philosophy, values, and methods of the SoccerGenius Development System – for the lifelong benefit of our members.
SoccerGenius is not a conventional soccer centre, company, or club. We emphasize skillful fun and positive play above all else. Winning and losing are simply part of a bigger journey for us. What matters more is how we win and lose.
We choose to win gracefully and lose victoriously. We choose to embrace life’s challenges and to follow a path of adventure. We choose a better way of organizing, coaching, and playing soccer; a way of community, a way of skillful development for everyone, and a way of fun. We encourage a growth mindset and a healthy lifestyle for members and staff alike.
We work to develop programs and offer services that significantly improve the lives of as many people as possible. We actively listen to what players (children and the adult version) say they want from their soccer experience. Overwhelmingly, what they want is more FUN! And that’s exactly what we deliver.
As we actively grow our community, we welcome constructive feedback and positive contributions to the overall success of the SoccerGenius community. We are thrilled to serve our members with the programs we have built at our very own SoccerGenius Centre. We are grateful for the many thousands of children, players, and families who continue to make SoccerGenius an incredible and dynamic community.
We have a strong commitment to our members, families, and especially the children. We look forward to delivering excellence, passion, and SoccerGenius awesomeness for years to come!
