Journey to Excel – Soccer High Performer Program

Journey to Excel is excited to offer an opportunity for High Performer Program athletes. Journey’s balanced approach to development will create a natural synergy with ambitious student athletes; we teach athleticism, and not just soccer. We recognize that true athleticism comes from skill, speed, fitness and determination, but also from proper recovery, mental health, nutrition, and social development. Our soccer-specific training is second to none, and we have made it a priority to ensure that the other aspects of our program are also world class. Our resources in the forms of performance psychology, nutrition and sports medicine combine to create a program offering that is unparalleled.

Our goal is to teach students how to learn, empowering them to take action in their own lives. We are focused on helping each person reach their highest potential, starting with how they train to be athletes. Here is an introduction to our Journey to Excel High Performer Program:
