First ODP Prep Session

Firstly I would like to congratulate everyone who attended the first session. Everyone worked really hard during the hour and half. Time is not on our side but as the tryouts are around the corner. Therefore we need to give it all our best during these sessions. I was very pleased with everyone today, the kids worked really hard and the wonderful part of all is the fact that they are willing to learn. As a player you can not take time of or think you know better than the other player. The important thing is to continue working on your skills and trying to perfect them. So that you will not get left behind. The secret is to continue training and perfecting those skills.

Some people are born with some skills, while as other needs to work hard to master the same skills. But even though you feel like you were born with those skills the funny part is as a player you still need to continue working to perfect them. Guys like Ronaldo and Messi they continuously try to perfect their skills, even though it looks like it is perfect.

keep the good work up and we will continue to keep working hard to try and get you ready not just for these tryouts but for the future as well.

Until next time!!!

Identifying the future

I try to post something at least once a month, but unfortunately last month I had so much work and not enough down time. My friends and I came up with an Idea of using our experience and talent to make a difference or giving back to the community. We started partnering with Host families to bring young soccer players to study and play soccer in the US. So far there are two players that we managed to bring. One of the players plays for the South African U17 National team.

Our goal is to Identify kids that not only show great potential with their soccer skills but also will be able to perform well in school. One of the problems that is always a recurring factor is that a lot of these young men find it hard to adjust in these new environment that they find themselves in. Thats where the host families comes into play. They help these young men adjust to their new life. We plan on not only Identifying kids from SA only but kids from within US. Help them locate University that will be beneficial in-terms of school and soccer, by providing them scholarships and a wonderful environment to grow as young men.

We have been getting a lot of requests and videos showcases. If you want more information feel free to send me a message at
