To find a group of coaches that cares for each player and their family is rare in most sporting environments, but that is what you will find when you become a part of the SG Family. You will find coaches who KNOW each player, and are not just counting them as another number, but instead, forming bonds that we hope to last many years. Each coach will focus on finding ways to help players improve to reach small and large goals alike. You will see coaches laughing with the kids, while still being able to keep drills intense and focused. This attitude allows players to enjoy getting better, which we feel is a WIN WIN. We value each and every player that comes to Soccer Genome, and are constantly seeking to improve your experience as a family.
