Kemp Soccer Objective
This is a club neutral program with the objective to raise young ladies and gentlemen who really enjoy playing the sport. The main focus is on building confidence in life that will transfer over onto the field. The reward comes by being able to observe players develop their mind over time to perform when in training and in matches. We create a seriously fun environment where players are instructed, but then encouraged to apply the technique or idea in their own way with critique. The creativity is too often coached out of individuals and players are then turned into robots. With education and the future in mind, Kemp Soccer Development also assists student-athletes in pursuing opportunities both in and outside of soccer. The mission is to develop young ladies and gentlemen first, soccer players second. Players are pushed out of their comfort zone in every session to be able to reach their next level of potential.
