Character - Integrity - Authenticity "CIA"
In our 26th year of ‘Total Footballing Development “, Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy continues to strive to be a leader among creative skill training, and complete physical and mental transformation. At CGSA we hold a high standard of discipline in our approach to training player's “Football Mechanics". We also consistently uphold high standards in proactive behavior modification. We believe in our 3-D concept (Discipline/Dedication/Desire)
We at CGSA believe in nurturing our young students to make choices based on our moral aptitude. CGSA creates a positive and respectful environment so all our students can fully consume our training philosophy. One of our motto's is “Winner’s Train Losers Complain”. What that means is to take full responsibility for information you consume, and have NO excuses on negative results that occur. For so many years in competitive Soccer, it has been one of the most important aspects of players individual success. Overall responsibility in ones development. Coaches are not responsible for your attitude. Remember that! There is one thing that every young athlete must understand. The journey is never easy. The perseverance of an athlete is just as important as the dedication. What drives a special player is the strong mindset that he or she acquires through the rough times of their development journey. This is CGSA's overall character development program that coincides with the technical, tactical, physical, and psychological molding of each an every committed Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy player.
To be a high-level athlete who also can venture in other areas of life, you need to dedicate yourself to always be willing to learn. It is a true Victory when someone uses trials and tribulations to gain knowledge and strength. Our creator has taught us that that the humble is blessed abundantly, and it is them who will receive the Heavenly Kingdom. CGSA has a great saying: Each One Teach One. A great # of alumni do return to mentor by teaching at summer camps and periodically Continuum classes. CGSA is a family of over 1000 great players, and great people. It is the appreciation of respect, discipline, dedication, loyalty, but most importantly LOVE. Always have your attention on your opponent. In sport, you need to strive to get better every day. The mentality is to be better today than yesterday. At CGSA we teach the students to always be prepared, and that there is always someone better than you, and they are fighting hard to get what you got. To have this type of professional personality you need to understand that to develop into that self-driven person, you need to have the "SURPASS YOUR BEST" attitude. What CGSA players are taught are that the real opponent is themselves. To be the best, train with the best.
