Overview of ADC Program

Where great coaches develop great players

 

Program Overview

ADC was specifically created to develop high-level soccer skills in our youngest soccer players. We know that our youngest players are in a vital time in their development, and that is why ADC delivers elite coaching, high-level skill development, and above all, a fun environment for our players to fall in love with the game.  Beginners to Advanced younger players will find a home in our ADC!

ADC Teaching Methods

The two directors, Taylor Kuhlman and Filip Leander, have a combined 25 plus years of experience coaching youth soccer. Between them they have placed players in college and professionally, coached at the highest levels of youth soccer, and have multiple USSF and NSCAA coaching licenses and diplomas. They have come together to create the teaching methods all coaches use in ADC. Here are some of the examples of what to expect:

The "ADC Practice Format for Developing High-Level Skill" is used in every practice to ensure great coaching.

Players are guided through the ADC Curriculum of soccer topics to ensure they receive the teaching they will need to compete at older ages.

The ADC Directors rotate through teams during the season overseeing practices and often leading teams’ practices.
