The Fire Approach To Success:
The soccer program at the Cleveland Fire seeks to provide all players with professional level training, development and opportunity preparing each team and individual for competition at the highest levels possible. Our approach to player development is that of a long term commitment. Through commitment, dedication, hard work and sacrifice we are able to provide all of our players with every opportunity to reach their maximum potential.
The training curriculum of the Cleveland Fire Soccer Club has been designed and structured to develop players in four essential areas that are needed for growth and advancement in the game of soccer. With the continued development in the following key areas players will increase their knowledge and understanding of the game while acquiring the necessary skills needed for success on and off the field.
This approach to player development is the building block we use to prepare our players for the natural progressions that occur in the game of soccer. These four areas provide the most crucial element in the total development of a soccer player: the ability to read the game, the flow, how to anticipate and adjust to individual opponents and teams. These are the intangible traits that make great players rise above others, and that players only develop over a long period of time with experience and experimentation.
