Why Play Soccer in Ormond Beach?


Our Goal at OBSC

The Goal of the Ormond Beach Soccer Club is to provide massive soccer value to the citizens of Ormond Beach by offering a Soccer Curriculum that will transform beginners in Youth Soccer into highly skilled adult Soccer Players.

 

We Develop Players

Anyone can coach youth players to win. You use your most athletic kids, play long balls, send them sprinting and press the entire time to score. This will produce winning youth soccer teams but it does not develop the best adult soccer players. OBSC provides players with the technical training and ball control skills to develop into the best possible adult soccer players.

 

Skills Training Leads to Winning

The Ormond Beach Soccer Club promotes a competitive, winning atmosphere without sacrificing the development of players. We believe winning is a product of proper skills training and hard work. That’s why individual Ball Control Skills are the focus of all training for every player at OBSC starting at the U5 Level.

The Fields

The Ormond Beach Sports Complex has the nicest Soccer Fields in all of Central Florida. Anyone who has been playing competitive soccer for any length of time has seen horrendous fields in other cities that host League Games for our Apollo and Waves Teams.

 

The Location

OBSC Parents, Players and Coaches spend 100 fewer hours per season traveling to and from Practices and Games. That means we save four entire days of the year that would otherwise be spent inside a car traveling to and from soccer. If you live in Ormond Beach you should play Soccer in Ormond Beach. If you drive 20 additional miles to and from practice twice per week, that adds up to an additional 4,000 miles per year on your vehicle and 90 additional minutes per week sitting in the car. Apollo and Waves teams train and play 9 Home Games per year at the Ormond Beach Sports Complex. We have two GPS Hosted Tournaments each year meaning 11 of our Soccer Weekends are spent right here in beautiful Ormond Beach.

 

2019 – 2020 Competitive Coaching Staff

Our 2019/2020 Apollo and Waves Coaching Staff will include Current Coaches: Nestor Ferrerio, Jon Kinsler, Alex Perez, Sebastian Adaime, and George Bellingham.

 

We have also recently added two new Coaches: Alex Webb and Kioki Hutchings

 

We are currently interviewing other Coaching Candidates and will add as many Licensed Coaches as we need to fill all teams with no Coach having more than two teams.

 

College Scholarships Should NOT be the Main Goal

This is one major selling point Soccer Clubs use and it only works because parents are not given all of the information on how Soccer Scholarships actually work. The reality of Soccer Scholarships is that the entire roster of 29 players splits the 10 scholarships awarded to the soccer team. The average Soccer Scholarship is less than $6,000.

You Can’t Play Soccer in England unless you have European Passports

If you and your spouse are both American Citizens with no foreign passport, the only way your child will play Professional Soccer in England is to first become a star on the US National Team or in the MLS. A Youth Soccer Club’s affiliation with an English Premier League Team is not a path to joining their top team, it is nothing more than a Sales and Marketing tool to increase player enrollment.

 

Daytona Soccer Club Partnership

The Daytona Soccer Club partnership with OBSC gives us access to an unlimited supply of Coaches. They will continue to shape our Recreational Soccer Program by providing real soccer skills training to all Recreational Players beginning at U5 and continuing all the way through High School. This means any players entering Competitive Soccer have been well trained during their years playing Recreational Soccer.

 

GPS Hosted Tournaments

We have a partnership with GPS to have Two Tournaments every season at the Ormond Beach Sports Complex. GPS brings teams from all over so you aren’t just playing the same teams over and over again and it is all right here in Ormond Beach.
