THE BEST SOCCER COACHES IN RALEIGH

The Soccer Academy Philosophy

The Victory Football Discipline

How did our coaches become the best soccer coaches in raleigh?
 
A relationship with Sir Alf Ramsey, a friend of his family, gave Coach Frank the opportunity to learn what Teddy and Frank have turned into The Victory Football Discipline. The foundation of striking a soccer ball methodology was learned from Sir Alf Ramsey, who would later lead England as the manager of the 1966 World Cup winners.

This relationship allowed Frank to train with the likes of Bobby Charlton, Mick Mills and even getting to meet and train with the great George Best during a tryouts at Portman Road for the Boys Reserve Squad.

MasterClass teaches The Victory Football Discipline which is the foundation that makes a top soccer player. Every student that comes to the academy starts at the some point, the beginning when they start with us.

Our students come from all of the major clubs in the area, CASL, NCFC Youth TFCA, TUSA, Wake FC, XL Soccer ...etc. Our coaches are not affiliated with any clubs and therefore you get a friendly learning environment without the club politics. The focus and energy is 100% on improving the soccer skills of our students.

Join us Sunday mornings 8 am at SportHQ in Cary or contact us about private lessons.
