Valeo Play for FREE Program
Valeo FC is proud to announce a new “Play for Free” program for present and future families involved in the Valeo FC U.S. Soccer Development Academy Program. “Play for Free” will give players the option of volunteering at charitable organizations or coaching their younger clubmates in lieu of paying club fees.
The program, created in the belief that great players are made not from financial resources but from hard work and dedication, will begin with the 2016-2017 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season. Players will work with Valeo FC Director Emelio Williams to find a volunteer or coaching opportunity that is the best fit for their personal strengths.
“Valeo Futbol was built off the generosity of others,” Williams says. “This program eases the financial burdens for our families and reflects our focus on giving back to the community and providing opportunities for our players to become leaders.”
Valeo FC encourages its players to be leaders on and off the field. As part of this leadership initiative, the club fosters a culture of social awareness, volunteering and giving back. The Development Academy players will pay it forward, volunteering and engaging in charitable and social activities in and around the surrounding community
For the US Soccer Development Academy Program, Valeo FC has designed a rigorous and immersive 12-month Superman program that is designed to drastically expedite the development of young players and prepare them to excel at the next level.
The program boasts 320 hours of training, instruction and match-play instruction, which is twice the amount of training of the typical Academy club and three times the amount of training of the average club team.
Elements of the program will include 320 hours of training throughout the 12 month season:
Training (2x week) June 19- July 31
3 week pre-season training Aug 7-August 21
Aug 29 – Nov 19/training three times per week/1 game per week
Nov 28 – Mar 24th/training two times per week/1 futsal match per week
Mar 27 – Jun 9/training three times per week/1 game per week
Valeo FC’s US Soccer Development Academy Program is also being run in conjunction with Valeo FC’s alliance club partnership with the MLS New England Revolution Academy. The partnership gives Valeo FC players and staff the opportunity to work hand in hand with Revolution Academy staff and teams.
