PRO SOCCER TRAINING PROGRAMS

Elite Academy Team

Objective

The primary objective for Orix is to prepare players for soccer opportunities beyond the youth ranks. The program allows players aged 14-18, to train year round in a professional environment and focuses on the technical, fitness, and mental aspects of the game. We develop players who believe they have the potential to become elite players but are not afforded a pathway through the existing soccer establishment.

Program Summary

Program participants will play in approximately 75 plus matches each program year against competition which is equivalent to the highest youth level competition available in the province.

During the Fall/Winter session players will train a minimum once per week and play 30-35 games through league play. During the Spring/Summer session players will train a minimum of 2 times per week and play in 35-40 games through league and tournament play.

Several matches per year will be filmed and made available for players to download to produce video reels for college recruitment or professional trials…

Orix has helped me go from playing in my local youth league, to earning a scholarship to play at the CIS university level. I played with the academy for two years, and those two years were crucial to my development as a player. Our team was lucky enough to travel to Sweden to compete in the 2018 Gothia Cup. That tournament was an experience I am very grateful for and will never forget!

Hi Ray! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for me. You have helped me get my confidence back and then some. You helped me to further develop my skills. And, most importantly, you believed I could get to this point, even when I didn’t believe it myself. Thank you for that. And now look where I am now! I have been offered a full ride scholarship to Alcorn State. I could not have done it without ORIX Team.

ORIX Academy offered me one of a kind training that is focused on not only developing technical skills, but also understanding the philosophy of the game. I was able to develop my leadership and technical skills because of the plethora of game opportunities and training sessions.


Thanks to Ray and ORIX, I am proud to say that I received a scholarship to play on the Langara College Mens Soccer Team. ORIX regularly schedules games against post secondary soccer teams so players can showcase their abilities to the teams directly. Through ORIX, my teammates and I were also able to achieve a once in a lifetime opportunity by playing in Sweden at the Gothia Cup. The Gothia Cup is sometimes referred to as “the Youth World Cup”, and I was able to play against teams from all around the world thanks to ORIX.


Ray’s commitment to educating, developing, and offering opportunities to players were just some of the reasons why playing at ORIX was a life changing experience for me!

Since I was 13 years old, Ray Goldenchild has helped me reach my goal of getting a full ride scholarship in the USA. He has experience as a collegiate athlete himself, and knows exactly what coaches expect from players in terms of technical abilities and fitness levels. He ensured that I understood how to play the game in addition to improving my soccer skills. He taught me how to communicate with potential schools, and helped me throughout my entire recruiting process. Ray has pushed me mentally and physically to go from a bronze house league goalkeeper to a starting Division 1 goalkeeper.

A big congratulations to your team Ray. From a development aspect I’m actually really knocked out about the way they play. Their commitment and your vision is a nice pairing. What’s really cool is that they think the game. That’s a big difference.
