Graeme Jennings is our Co founder with a big reputation in Southern California for developing youth soccer players at the highest level.
Graeme also has a high level of experience from his home country of England and with the combination of European and U.S experiences E.F.A hope to bring both sides of that knowledge to educate and develop the youth of Southern California.
"My objective is to provide sessions that maximize touches on the ball in a competitive individual and team environment. Therefore giving players the opportunity to learn the game while developing their individual skills, teamwork and passion.
Every player should aim high to become fundamentally sound using both feet when touching or striking the ball (control, dribbling, passing and shooting). The ability to motivate yourself each time to practice at a game like quality is crucial to development and success."
