Southampton Program Overview:

Puma FC is the Official Club Partner with Southampton FC, an English Premiership club that is widely recognized as one of the world leaders in developing youth soccer players. Southampton FC has produced some of the most technically gifted British players in the game today, notably Gareth Bale (Real Madrid), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton) and Theo Walcott (Arsenal).

Puma FC coaches implement the Southampton curriculum across the board to our players and teams. Our coaches take a player centered and holistic approach to ensure each individual is given the opportunity to develop in the training environment. In addition, our coaches will continually meet and communicate with the Southampton Academy staff to ensure quality training on an ongoing basis.

So what does this mean for your child? It means that if you are at Puma FC, you know the training is at the highest level and each player will develop to their full potential. Your child will be encouraged to express their ability, playing passing soccer with an emphasis on technical excellence and skill. No other club in Kansas or Missouri has a soccer program with this type of proven success. This program is available for boys and girls U13-U18.
