Our Accelerate Sports individual soccer player program is called Invictus FC. This program is designed so families can choose which training and/or game day works in their schedule. For the 2019-2020 season there are four 10-12 week sessions. You are welcome to join all four sessions or choose sessions based on other sports or activities your child may participate in. We encourage multi-sport athletes and well rounded individuals so you are not stuck in a long term commitment forced to choose soccer over family time, another sport or another activity.

Our training sessions are based on a proven curriculum that focuses on player development using unique methods developed by Paul Mairs and Richard Shaw. By adding Paul (Director of Education) and Richard (President of Invictus FC), both enhance our program by partnering with bestselling authors, sports and exercise Science professionals, college coaches and former professional soccer players. The coaching staff has years of experience that will be utilized providing your child with individual development opportunities based upon Paul and Richard's 'Coaching Outside the Box' philosophy which has been endorsed internationally and throughout the U.S.

Our games are designed to eliminate stress and anxiety for both players and parents. Coaches are not yelling at your child for making a mistake, parents are not yelling at referees and parents are not fighting each other on the sidelines. Eliminating these outside distractions, players can be creative, smile and enjoy the sport. Players look forward to attending games and parents can grab a cup of coffee and watch your child play in a positive environment that will help them develop a passion for the sport.
