Our Philosophy

Club Philosophies:
To provide a professional and fun learning environment so every player can thrive and reach their highest potential.

To cultivate a spirited character that will stay with each player beyond the soccer field.

To inspire a deep love and appreciation for the game, and everything it has to offer.

The AFFC Culture is a dynamic, creative, and free style of play based on ball possession, intelligent movement, and work ethic. We want players, parents, and coaches that embrace the AFFC crest as well as maintain the values of the club.

AFFC Values:
⦁ Enjoyment and Passion
⦁ Team Spirit
⦁ Learn and Teach
⦁ Professionalism
⦁ Hard Work

U9-U11 Boys/Girls:
At this age, technical skill and ball mastery are essential. Here we introduce the components of off the ball movement, supporting angles, speed of play, and how to defend against 1v1s and 2v1s. After their U11 season, each player will have mastered the basic foundations of passing, dribbling, shooting, tackling, etc.

U12-U13 Boys/Girls:
Players will be mastering their 1v1 dominance both technically and tactically. Coaches will help players to develop their tactical flexibility by teaching them defensive shape, dynamic, off-the-ball movement, and how to recognize space and numerical advantages.

U14+ Boys/Girls:
Players will be able to play without thinking, meaning that all basic functions will be second nature. Tactically, players will be able to anticipate play and make play predictable. Players will be mastering their defensive shape, dynamic, off-the-ball movement, and recognizing open space and numerical advantages.
