ABOUT PELADA FOOTBALL ACADEMY

YOUTH SOCCER DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR EVERY PLAYER

Pelada Football Academy is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization serving youth soccer players in the Eugene / Springfield area, Oregon. Our mission is to support the education of young people in our community through soccer by fostering values of positive leadership, team ethics, and fair play along with the technical and tactical skills of the game.

THE PELADA PHILOSOPHY


  • Opportunities for All: Players are not cut based on ability. Every player plays at least 50% of each match.
  • Coaches as Educators: Certified coaches who participate in ongoing education and understand their roles as teachers, role models, and life mentors for children.
  • Competitive Player Development: Curriculum and club practices designed to improve each player’s standard of play and ability to compete at a high level.
  • Positive Approach: Inclusive and supportive environments for players, and insistence on fair play.

OUR COMMUNITY GOALS


  • Provide positive environments and exceptional playing experiences for young players.
  • Train leaders and foster mentoring relationships between young players that accelerate personal development.
  • Increase and diversify opportunities for competition locally by collaborating with other organizations, supporting leagues, and hosting tournaments and community events.
  • Answer the calls and needs of the community as we continue to develop our programs.
