“I believe that a quality learning environment is Reality based, is Holistic in nature, Experiential driven, and Autonomy supported. At the end of the day, we want our children to be healthy, have fun with their soccer experience, and learn valuable life lessons they will take with them into adulthood.” – Coach Ethan, LRD
