Soccer Resilience® is thrilled to announce the renewal of our partnership with the Soccer Organization of Charlottesville Area (SOCA). Founded in 1982, SOCA has been a cornerstone of soccer development in Virginia, with a rich history of fostering a love for the sport in the community.

Gregory Vickrey, SOCA Director of Coaching and ECNL Regional League Coordinator, highlights the significance of this collaboration:

"SOCA understands that the mental game is crucial for the development, growth, and, ultimately, the performance of our players. We are excited to utilize the respected expertise of Soccer Resilience to guide us in providing our players with a more holistic platform for training. This holistic approach will ultimately give them a significant competitive advantage. With players, parents, and coaches engaging through the incredible resources, connections, and curriculum of Soccer Resilience, we are setting a new standard for Virginia soccer clubs few, if any, aspire to - and, most importantly, providing our players with the space and the investment to thrive and pursue success on and off the pitch."

SOCA's commitment to player development extends beyond the physical aspects of the game. They recognize the vital role of the mental game in player growth and performance. This partnership reaffirms SOCA's dedication to providing their players with a holistic platform for training, setting a new standard for Virginia soccer clubs.

“From our first meeting with Gregory (SOCA Director of Coaching), we were blown away by his dedication and passion to holistically provide for his players, coaches and families! When a club has such a strong commitment to incorporate and foster mental fitness training into its culture - that’s when deep and long-lasting growth occurs. We are very values aligned with the mission and vision of SOCA and know this will be a great partnership.” 

- Dr. Brad Miller, Psy.D., Co-Founder of Soccer Resilience


As part of this renewed partnership, SOCA players will benefit from a total of 31 Mental Fitness Training sessions. These sessions are complemented by access to Soccer Resilience®'s Foundations Course and a wealth of additional mental fitness resources.

Soccer Resilience® shares SOCA's vision of holistic player development, emphasizing the importance of mental fitness, resilience, and personal growth. Together, we are committed to shaping not just soccer champions, but individuals who thrive both on and off the pitch.
