The goals of our training and coaching programs are to build character and instill positive values in our players through hard work, responsibility, mutual respect, and teamwork. We also seek to instill in our players a lifelong love and understanding of the beautiful game of soccer. To achieve these goals, Sacramento United provides a club-wide training and coaching program whereby all players and teams learn from all the coaches in common training sessions and training camps. The coaches work in close coordination with each other to deliver a shared philosophy of the game and the systems to play it. We encourage and support our coaches to obtain higher levels of training and licensing, to develop relations with the recreational clubs where most young players first learn soccer, and to foster player and parental involvement in the planning, organization, and administration of the program.
