Weston FC, MLS NEXT, & coachbetter: The perfect trilogy with amazing synergy
Weston FC’s history is short, yet very impressive. Formed in 1998 with 100 players, Weston FC has grown into one of the largest and most respected competitive soccer clubs in the United States based in South Florida. The teams with players ranging from 7-19 years play a ten-month season in South Florida, around the nation, and internationally. The club’s vision to develop good human beings through soccer training, development and coaching can be experienced throughout all programs the club offers, most notably the Premier Program and MLS NEXT. As one of the 133 clubs forming the MLS NEXT program, Weston FC recently implemented a new strategy to digitally transform and further professionalize the club, which is in line with the spirit of MLS NEXT.
MLS NEXT provides the best player development experience in North America. Founded on a collaborative approach to governance and a commitment to innovation, MLS NEXT players have access to the highest levels of competition and to training to prepare them for their futures, both in soccer and in life. MLS NEXT wants to take youth soccer to the next level with the ambitious goal to transform the way players learn and grow.
Led by Technical Director Luis Mendoza, former professional Venezuelan football player and former Director of the Real Madrid Select Program, Weston FC started the transformation on how players learn and grow by implementing coachbetter throughout the club, also with focus on coaching education. Guided by Kike Guijarro, a former coach of Real Madrid Youth Academy, coaching education is held every two weeks to align the club’s philosophy, discuss and exchange. Coachbetter will help to efficiently communicate between coaches, staff and players and will secure the highest training session quality.
