Richard Asante, President and Founder of Asante Soccer Academy
Message from the Founder
At Asante Soccer Academy, ASA, our mission is to foster the growth and development of soccer players of all ages. As a result of shortcomings in educational funding and a lack of after-school training programs, many young people are not given the opportunity to develop leadership skills, personal responsibility, and a solid work ethic through sport. In response, I founded ASA, thereby developing programs that run throughout the year. These programs do not just develop soccer skills, they also promote sportsmanship and a positive attitude that applies both on and off the soccer field.
Asante Soccer Academy offers a number of different programs, suitable to all ages and abilities. Explore our programs to find the one that is most suitable to you and your needs.
The Asante Development pathway provides a roadmap for players of all ages and aspirations who want to play soccer at the recreational, competitive, or high performance levels, with the aim of encouraging lifelong participation.
At ASA we understand the importance of supporting talented young players as they develop into skilled athletes. This is why we have partnered with so many organizations to give kids a chance to play soccer. We strive to turn dreams into reality by breaking the cycle of underachievement and promoting excellence in soccer, school, and character development. We believe that our programs enhance the lives of young people and help to develop our community’s future leaders.
Our training philosophy involves implementing age-appropriate training curriculum at all levels to ensure the best development of our players. Asante Soccer Academy offers a variety of programs, including House League, Competitive Programs, and High Performance Programs, each designed to meet the needs of players at different stages in their soccer journey. See below for the complete list of programs and to find the one best suited to you and your needs.
At Asante Soccer Academy, our coaches are qualified and committed to the growth of all our players in both the development and competitive programs that we offer. They are certified, experienced and passionate about the beautiful game of soccer and want to pass on that passion to the next generation of players.
