At Orix we have a simple philosophy "more teaching less coaching".
Our training programs are designed to develop the individual player technically, tactically and mentally.  We generally do not assess players based on their age but rather on their playing level and soccer IQ. The listed age categories are mainly for league compliance purposes, therefore players may be placed on older aged teams based on their current ability level.  It is common place to see players in our programs playing up 1 to 2 age groups on any given match day. We believe this is the best way to achieve accelerated development and prepare players for elite level soccer beyond youth play.
