VICTORY FC & ACADEMY
A Character Development Club
Victory FC & Academy is an international, grassroots, character-based football (soccer) club and developmental academy for youth currently based in Colorado, USA. We are committed first and foremost to teaching and building character in our players in a fun, wholistic, and positive environment. Victory was first established by the current CEO/President, Aaron Soby, in Cyprus (East Mediterranean) in 2014 and then in the USA in 2018, with the vision to integrate excellent player development and character growth to see players become truly victorious people in their lives both on the field and long after they cease playing the game.
The club has since flourished and grown both in Cyprus and now in Colorado (USA) with the vision to grow into 10 states in the USA and into 10 additional foreign countries around the world by 2030.
Game Plan – Vision, Mission, Values
Victory seeks to develop male and female players ages 3+ from grassroots to top elite players and teams around the world that play and represent the sport with character, honor, and excellence both on and off the field. We strive to see our players become champions in life as well as in sport through our various football programs.
Victorious players in sport and life
Developing quality grassroots and elite football players of character, honor, and excellence
Victory is a CHARACTER-BASED CLUB that values CHARACTER, “Who you are when you are under pressure and when nobody is looking,” above and beyond everything else in the game. We are passionate and wholly committed to seeing every player regardless of athletic talent and ability to become a true champion in life both on and off the field. Our character development curriculum is the center-piece of our entire club and trains our players to become the right person which then in turn forms their attitudes, behaviors, and performance on and off the soccer field.
HONOR is the second pillar of Victory and is defined as….. “Standing up for all that is good, moral, pure, praise-worthy, and right in any and every situation.” This definition was inspired by the US Army who defines HONOR as, “Carrying out, acting, and living the values of respect, duty, loyalty, selfless service, integrity and personal courage in everything you do.” (March 8, 2013, ARMY WEBSITE, THE CODE OF HONOR)
EXCELLENCE is the third pillar of Victory and is defined as, “Achieving the absolute highest standard and quality that you can achieve through hard work, perseverance, discipline, and practice.” We strive to help all of our players in every training session and match to be the absolute best they can be, both on and off the field individually and as a team regardless of the circumstances.
Opportunity For All
Lastly, Victory values very highly making our soccer programs available to all children, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or socio-economic factors through a robust scholarship fund and by setting up sites in communities where less-advantaged families live.
