Orix Academy has been one of the best development programs I have ever been a part of. Orix has helped me develop not only as a better soccer athlete but also a better leader. Orix Academy focuses on providing the best training at the highest level. Trainings such as fitness, tactical, and film sessions which improve not only our physical body, but makes us stronger mentally. Orix had given me the opportunity in joining to achieve my goal of receiving a scholarship in college. With the help of Coach Ray I had received a scholarship for the Langara College soccer team.
Orix academy is a great academy because it focuses on players and what they do off the field. Giving us opportunities such as coaching and volunteer work, this helps us grow as individuals in this community. The hard work coach Ray put into this academy is mind blowing. The time he takes out to work on each player and help them grow to become the best version of themselves. The connection he has with the players is incredible. Coach Ray takes time out of his day to communicate daily with players and what they believe needs to improve or needs to be worked on as a team. He has always been the coach who looks for improvement and that’s what makes this academy amazing.
Orix Academy isn’t just a soccer team, it’s a family. We got the opportunity to play in Sweden and take part in the Gothia Cup which was a life changing experience. Orix academy had fundraisers which all players and family came together to help making this Gothia Cup experience possible. Till this day I am training with coach Ray and I still find room for improvement which is why Orix Academy is an academy that I highly recommend to upcoming soccer athletes.
