Professional Facilities

At Premiere we have created high standards in everything we do, including where we operate our sessions. We operate sessions mainly on grass fields and only use turf when it's necessary. Our organization is one of the few in British Columbia to include a proper futsal program for our players which includes all the necessary futsal equipment. We are known to rent Swangard Stadium for games to allow players to experience a stadium environment and a flawless pitch. We hire specific SAQ Instructors for their conditioning program and have University Professors build the player's weight training programs. Premiere goes the extra mile to implement team building sessions at unique locations where a guest instructor conducts a session that focuses on: creating a winning / competitive mentality, build confidence and disciplined aggression, learn about teamwork & accomplishing a task in a small to large group, and finally fitness (Aerobic & Anaerobic).

Global Training Opportunities

Premier's staff have experience playing local and abroad and know that many player's dreams are to train with professional clubs in South America or Europe. At Premier we are establishing a network of connections to provide players with the opportunity to train for 21 - 30 days during a specific time of the year. The purpose is for them to continue their soccer learning & development, prepare for University or a professional trial, or even to gain some additional life experience. This opportunity is designed for a specific player with professional motivation and drive to reach his/her full potential.

Player Management

An aspect of a professional youth development program is player manager. A significant area where parents completely miss the value of proper professional guidance for the player's youth career, mentality, and physical and mental approach to their training and games. At Premiere we guide the player through their youth career by working with them on and off the field. This includes: nutrition & hydration, rest and recovery, school grades, sleep habits, field position, their specific role on the team, leadership skills, and isolation skills and exercises to do on their own. However, since Premiere is an actual Academy and want all our athletes to reach their full potential, our staff navigate them using written projects & assignments. This means: short and long goal settings every year while using the S.M.A.R.T. technique, player assessment reviews, and written exams on: soccer theory, technical, tactical and even soccer history. Our players conduct homework projects on professional clubs, University applications to play Varsity soccer, which varsity leagues to apply for and why.

Academy's Sport Manager - Willon Fragoso
Willon is our sport manager and is originally from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. In Brazil, he was a director of a popular news channel and a sports journalist for soccer. Willon works behind the scenes not only for the Academy but for the players. He has a large background in video editing, journalism, and graduated BCIT for Sports Management. At Premiere you are not another number that just takes part of the organization, but a player with name and our client. The player's success on and off the field is Premiere's success and we strive to reach the player's short and long term goals, whatever they might be.

Life's Core Values

The infrastructure of our Academy is designed to implement life's core values where the player can learn & take away from the Academy and sport in order to apply them to everyday life & their future career. This might include: self-awareness, self reflection, ambition, hard work, discipline, being punctual, respect, team-work, communication with peers / instructors (boss), leadership skills and how to lead, passion, accountability, professionalism, integrity, desire to learn, being positive, sportsmanship, being patient, being coachable, resilient, having a positive attitude, and helpful to others. 

Partnerships & Sponsors

One of our Academy objectives is to work with other businesses in the local community. At the moment we are developing relationships with restaurants, barber shops, car dealerships, coffee shops, supplement stores, other fitness establishments, and many more.

Our current partnerships that benefit our players are: Popeye Supplements in Coquitlam, Twist Conditioning in Port Coquitlam, Martial Arts Gym in the Tri-Cities, Soccer City in Langley and 30 Minute Hit in North Vancouver, with many more coming soon.  


Premiere Soccer Academy is inspired by specific training hubs around the world (some listed below). These specific hubs is where our curriculum comes from. We are proud to say that our curriculum is not only modern but specifically trains the player's brain to execute their technical and what their position demands from them. Remember, the brain function of the player and its decision is what fires the feet to operate. You must train this way in order to have any success on the field.
