THE PELOTA WAY

Our Mission Statement

To promote the technical development of players of all ages and levels, and bring to the forefront of the youth soccer landscape the need to coach technical training.  We strive to instill in all of our players a passion to want the ball at their feet, which in turn will create a self-motivation to improve their technical ability. 

The Six Guiding Principles

FIRST TOUCH - always active and clean
COGNITIVE - never stop thinking with the ball at your feet
MOVEMENT / AGILITY - move your feet with the ball
BALL AND BODY - keep the ball in front
MINDFULNESS - awareness of all surroundings
BE BIG - stand tall, be balanced, strength on the ball

Developing these six traits requires REPETITION, REPETITION, REPETITION to develop the consistency on the ball that strong technical players possess
