Our Experience

Over the years, the International Soccer School of Excellence, LLC has interacted with some of the top players, coaches and clubs in the Twin Cities area. 

Our experience has shown us that a strong club structure, consistent developmental philosophy and integrated learning environment will substantially increase a players development. 

In preparing players, we have set forth a structure (camps, team training, club training, specialty training, private lessons, etc.) that we feel best captures those elements and provides incentive to players at all levels. 

Ultimately our desire is to assist players in their development (technical, tactical, physical, mental) in a fun but challenging environment.
