Challenge Aggieland Soccer Philosophy

Challenge Aggieland United Soccer Club has sought to focus on the growth and development of our players and teams by always trying to do what is in the best interest of the individual player first. We form our teams by selecting players with similar athletic abilities, and train to play at the highest level of competition possible. With a focus on creating a fun environment, the Youth Academy program is a step above our Recreational program as we train and develop players to be ready for competitive play. Development of tactical knowledge, technical skills, physicality, psychological health, and teamwork are our top priorities. Respect, good sportsmanship, and being gracious in both victory and defeat is taught and expected from all players in our Youth Academy programs.
