Jackson’s Pathway Towards His Dream
Jackson Meyers has reached the next level of his personal pathway, and we could not be more proud!
Jackson, now 10 years old, started playing soccer at age 5. He joined LA Galaxy Orange County (now Liverpool FCIA SoCal) through our Junior Development League (JDL) recreation program. From JDL, he was selected into our Center of Excellence program, where players are professionally trained and prepared to transition from a recreational program to competitive soccer. As Jackson moved on to the Club’s Pre-Academy teams, his parents appreciated the consistent positive coaching approach which enabled Jackson to set a foundation and develop up the soccer ladder. This is what they had to say about his experience:
“Jackson’s current opportunity with the LA Galaxy Development Academy was only possible due to the incredible player development platform and superior coaching he received at LA Galaxy OC (now Liverpool FCIA SoCal). Their strong alignment with the LA Galaxy Professional Club has made for a seamless transition. Outstanding individualized instruction remained constant during his 4 years with the club. Jackson benefited from the Club’s 5-Star Coaching model <coaches personal development platform> and enabled him to progress successfully through the Club’s Player Pathway.
As parents, we all want to see our kids develop their skills and become better soccer players, however HOW that is done is critical. The coaches created a consistent, positive and fun environment, developing both skills and reinforcing sportsmanship, attitude, responsibility and a love of the game. We also appreciated how coaches from the various teams within the club built great relationships with all players, even those not on their specific teams. It creates a family environment, which for younger players in particular is key to maximizing their growth. We could not be more grateful for the incredible development & coaching Jackson received!”
Boys Director, Graeme Jennings, coached Jackson while he played with us and said “Jackson has an attitude and desire to accept nothing less than top quality; learning from mistakes, and then putting in the extra time to reframe his mistakes; he took this opportunity to learn and develop which helped him improve and master his techniques. It has been a privilege for me and all of our coaches who worked with Jackson, to see him grow, mature and develop as a player and person.”
From all of us at LFCIA SoCal, CONGRATULATIONS JACKSON!
