|Our philosophy is to provide each of our players with a solid platform gained through their soccer education, invaluable support, advice and lessons learned from our staff which they can go forward and make positive decisions and choices for their future.
||Our goal is to progress players to U.S. Soccer Development Academy, U.S. Soccer National Team, collegiate or professional play. PSA has a system, the 'Elite Development Plan,' and coaching staff in place for players to reach this goal - if they are prepared to work hard, be open minded, stay committed and of course have the necessary ability.
||What is an Academy? From the moment a player enters PSA we want them to know and quickly recognize they are part of a process, an organization, a community, a team of individuals that do things differently with the purpose of improving as a player and a person. We are proud to have earned our U.S. Club Soccer National Premier Leagues Academy status. This meas we have met the national standards needed in terms of vision, development and infrastructure.
||What it takes! Our field players train up to four times per week and are coached by a nationally licensed staff led by a full-time Director of Coaching and two Technical Directors, have weekly opportunities to train and compete at higher age groups, compete in a Futsal league and are provided unique opportunities to be trained by and travel to EPL Sunderland AFC. Our goalkeepers train multiple times per week with our full-time Goalkeeper Coach.
