Lessons Learned from the Game

Soccer School of Maryland is not the traditional soccer club, team or training program - our approach is more encompassing, more comprehensive and derived from the lessons of the game. We believe and understand that the path to becoming a professional soccer player is a science, one that is meticulously studied and analyzed. By looking at the complete picture, we are able to breakdown baseline performance and build a customized program to help you reach your goals as a player.

Everyone at Soccer School of Maryland is dedicated to personal health, helping others and using the beautiful game as a vehicle for develpment. We pledge to remain students of the game and continue to present innovative training atmospheres to educate our own students. We facilitate a socratic method of teaching to challenge creativity and intuition while fostering critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Our goal is to inspire athletic genius through perpetual, bottom-up learning behavior.
