A Word From The Director...

"I have been blessed with abundant favor. I played Soccer, because I was talented at it, but more importantly I loved it. When I became a soccer player that made a difference is the same time I became a responsible child of God. I took what was given to me and without being scared of failure used it to frame my entire being. I have been a professional coach for 25 years, and I do it because I love it. Being a leader of men, women, boys, and girls I have to understand what that entails. Through my talent as a player, my personality, and heart I have had a wonderful time not only producing and winning trophies along the way to keep my competitive spirit alive, but to just affect lives positively. This means more to me than any goal I scored, or any championship trophy I won".

​"Coaching / training to me is an extension of your personality, and not always has to do with your character. I believe after personal experience, and knowledge I attained, that coaching is not who I am, but more the extension of who I chose to be.  I do know this about coaching, or training players, that coaches have to be flexible about their approach, and utilize their individual player's strengths to develop the team. The most important component of coaching is developing relationships that are built on trust, loyalty, belief, and most important love.  Without authentic education, you can't understand the fine, detailed, and technical skills needed to play at a high level. So because of my vast experience through first my father John Greenwood and then playing for well known coaches in Europe, I created not only a system that serves skill development well, but also an authentic approach to the history of Football."

"I was blessed enough to play for well known managers such as; Terry Yorath at Swansea, Alan Durban at Cardiff City, Harry Redknapp at Bournemouth, Ossie Ardiles at Swindon Town, Ian Bowyer at Hereford, Rildo Menezes at Valley Eagles, and Ron Newman at San Diego Sockers. All of them had one thing in common. They had PASSION."

Yours In Soccer,

Clint Greenwood
