MPC Academy operates in 3 main areas to develop student athletes on their journey to whatever it is they are to become. Our main purpose is to create the WHOLE individual not just focusing on what the athletes are doing on the field.
AS A SOCCER PLAYER WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD?
"To reach your MAXIMUM, what you do OFF the training field is more important than what you do ON it" - Enoch Showunmi
Where do I go from here????
Are you a parent of a 14-18 year old who is looking to take their soccer & college journey to the next level?
THEN LISTEN UP!
As a player or parent of a player are you doing the right things to put yourself in the spotlight to get on the college roster of your choice, earn a better scholarship or even earn a professional contract?
Maybe you've taken your son or daughter to many ID Camps, tryouts and they've failed to stand out to college coaches or even failed at playing at higher level team within their club.
Maybe it's not about their ability but on the big stage or when it matters they freeze when they have so much riding on it. Maybe they just need to improve certain aspects of their game and with all the noise on the internet you don't know what the right path is for you.
Maybe, as a parent you've become frustrated that you've put so much time, effort and money but have seen little in the way of development.
I've been in that exact position. Trial after trial, tryout after tryout. I failed to stand out, wasn't able to show my best form and at time to be brutally honest, I just wasn't even good enough.
So, I set out on my journey to become the best player I could be:
I had to work on my limiting beliefs, and there will be some in every teenager as they venture into the unknown
I had to let go of years of rejections and build my confidence and self-esteem
I had to figure out how to live like a professional athlete despite the fact I was still in university and working part-time
I had to change from negative self-talk and labelling to something more positive
All of that was before I even entered onto the field to keep improving my game. These are the same skills that have helped me to transition off the field and build my own business as an entrepreneur.
Maybe these are some the issue your child is facing right now and just need the right mentor and the right program for them to really excel and unleash that true potential that is within them.
First, we start with that inner journey & understanding themselves, that self-awareness so they have a clear picture in what GOALS they are moving towards and most importantly WHY.
Top athletes and successful people in general attribute success as 80% to their mentality and 20% to their actual talent or ability. While scientist say we only use 10% of our brain while 90% of what we do is unconscious.
So the question remains why do we focus almost 100% on the 20% physical training and on our 10% conscious abilities, rather than the 80% MINDSET and the 90% subconscious that creates our success?
This is our starting point. MINDSET
WANT TO BE RECRUITED
Soccer as a sport is the most competitive in the world. If you are male or female and you want to go professional or earn a good scholarship then you are not competing with the players in your team, players in your area or state or even just in your country. You are competing with players from all over the world.
Even if you just want to get your game to the next level and break into a MLS Next academy, or high level competitive soccer team then you are looking at multiple number of players vying a a few spots available. So, that leads me to my question – what are you doing to stand out from the crowd?
MPC Academy has teamed up with PlayerMakerUno to bring this genius piece of equipment into the hands of individuals who are serious about taking their game to the next level. Serious about earning a contract, a scholarship or getting on the top roster with their number 1 choice school or academy then this is a no brainer!
Why will it help you may ask?
Firstly, over 100 colleges in the US are using the technology and over half the team’s academies in the EPL and Championship in the UK are utilizing it. Secondly, you can compare your stats to a benchmark of US top college players and UK elite players as well as senior players. So, you will know how far you need to go to get your level the same as those in the positions you want to get to.
Before GOOGLE became your friend. BEFORE the Internet. That journey took me 5 years before I could go on and say I was a professional, elite soccer player. Now with the help of this technology, I've been able to simplify the process so that your student athlete can Unleash their Potential.

READY TO IGNITE YOUR CAREER? CLARIFY YOUR PURPOSE? CULTIVATE YOUR DREAM LIFE?
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." ― Roald Dahl
For the student athlete, the sport, soccer will be the most important aspect of what they want to pursue. Dreams of going professional are usual for most young players the world over.
The fact that they will looking to go into an industry where 0.01% of young players make it professional. It truly is an exclusive club.
As a parent, I'm sure you will be looking more into what your teenager is going to major in and what career path they are likely to take.
MPC Academy delves deep into the individual to map out a route for the student athlete to map out their own path. Finding out their interests and hobbies and diving deep into job roles that they could potentially go into post sports (whatever age that may be) and post college.
Here at MPCA we pride ourselves on finding solutions that will help impact the lives of our athletes.
At different stages in our lives our interests and hobbies may change and they fluctuate so much during our teens, depending on what we are exposed to. By continually developing the student athletes own identity and how the view and see the world and finding the correct path for them
We look at ways in which they can build on self-awareness that lasts longer than it takes to complete this program. The secret to our success is in managing thoughts (mindset) building on their ability and confidence (performance) and finding roles that they would be happy and enthusiastic about seeing through (careers).
These 3 steps are critical to build the WHOLE person and this is why MPC Academy is the step that student athletes need to take to fully unleash their own potential.
MPC ACADEMY addresses multiple issues you'll find in student athletes
