THE FOOTBALL ACADEMY
St. John’s Academy has teamed up with The Pacific Football Club to develop a new premier soccer training academy that’s geared for students.
The main objective of The Football Academy is to develop complete soccer players. We’ll be focusing on specific fundamentals of the game such as team morale and culture, mental and physical aspects of the game, as well as technical and tactical awareness. St. John’s Football Academy wants to create a safe and supportive environment where players can demonstrate their abilities while adapting to a unique coaching philosophy.
Our aim is to educate young soccer players while promoting respect, leadership, discipline, dedication and humility in a competitive environment driven by high standards and expectations.
