Our coaches are qualified and committed to the growth of all our players in both the development and competitive programs that we offer.
ASA was the dream of its founder Richard Asante who understands the social and economic realities of children and young adults who enjoy the game of soccer. Due to the low funding in many schools and the lack of training and development during the school year for young soccer players, Asante Soccer Academy developed a program to run all twelve months of the year to meet the challenges of every individual players needs.
The programs offered by Asante Soccer Academy were created not only to focus on soccer skills and techniques but to also help players develop the right attitude and sportsmanship along with other techniques that could apply on and off a soccer field.
Our Coaches are certified, experienced and passionate about the beautiful game of soccer and want to pass on that passion to the next generation.
It is our core belief, and the reason we love the game so much, that soccer is a vehicle by which so many important life lessons can be learned such as teamwork, good sportsmanship, healthy competition, mutual respect, commitment, integrity, and responsibility. Our goal is that each of our players will walk away from our programs equipped to be successful in any field.
Our goal is to develop better players by providing support structures and programs for coaches and parents to implement this player-centric programming at every level of the game.
Our training philosophy involves implementing age-appropriate training curriculum at all levels to ensure the best development of our young players. By understanding the correct areas of focus at each stage of a player’s development, parents and coaches can work together to ensure that our players’ education is being correctly facilitated.
We offer a co-ed learning environment where each child is encourage to grow and develop.
