We focus on technical excellence in the Foundation Phase. This is achieved through the game itself -- utilizing small-sided games as the cornerstone to training. We create scenarios where players are forced to make decisions founded on their technical skillset. This way practices are fun and the learning is deeper and disguised within the game.

Overall, our coaching approach is similar to gardening -- 'we cannot force plants to grow, all we can do is provide the conditions for the growth and they will flourish’. Our soccer practices are the same way and revolve around a simple checklist of must-haves:

Does it look like the game? Is it fun? Does the session inspire players to train outside of practice?

The Youth Development Phase is the perfect time for the players to be passed from the small-sided game into the bigger game.

This is such an important phase and the last time where the players will be doing a full year as at U16 high school will begin and we as a club rest.

This is the entry level phase to the program.

The technical skills learned throughout the foundation phase will be built on, whilst the tactical concepts addressed in small-sided formats will be applied in a new context. Across the 3 years in this phase, we work through a curriculum designed to continue development and educate players in many facets of the game.

All teams will be encouraged to play an attractive brand of soccer, with a good balance of organization and discipline, mixed with creativity and flair. The overall aim of this phase is to help our players acquire the technical ability, tactical knowledge, and personal skills needed as they enter the College Prep Phase.

This is the entry level phase to the program.

In the College Prep Phase, an increased emphasis is placed upon collective problem solving -- not teaching an individual player a solution to a problem, but teaching the squad how to discern and communicate game situations and creatively come to team solutions. The Hotspurs player is resilient and adaptable, qualities that are valuable to college coaches (and serve the player well in the classroom as well.)

In addition to the on-field work, Hotspurs conducts the Player Enrichment Series giving the players tools to succeed in the classroom, be resilient in the face of the stresses of growing up, and, with our partnership with the NCSA, unparalleled support in college recruitment. The Hotspurs player and family are supported in choosing the right college for the individual, not just athletically, but academically and socially -- be it a nationally competitive Division I program or a regional Division III program.
