Next Gen USA's Character of Champions program helps players develop winning habits both on and off the field.
Talented players will never reach their potential without demonstrating a winning attitude, strong character and leadership qualities.
Regardless of how high the soccer ladder players climb, the lessons and values they learn through our program, such as Confidence, Responsibility, Teamwork and Persistence, will serve them well in college, future careers and in life itself.

HOW IT WORKS
At the beginning of each of Training Cycle, players set their Soccer, Academic and Personal Goals, plus Individual Development plan for the upcoming season.
After each field training session players participate in short interactive Character of Champions workshops.
For homework, players complete worksheets on how they can integrate their learning into everyday activities in Soccer, School and at Home.
At the end of each training cycle players discuss their progress with Next Gen staff and transfer their lessons learned into their goal setting for the next training cycle.
