Our focus is to build leaders who will implement the strategy, synergy, and growth-centric approach learned in our program to all elements of their life. We build from the inside out, challenging players to be the best version of themselves on the pitch and off.
The Cardinal Way
Cardinal FC is going to challenge every aspect of the player to ensure holistic growth. A strong foundation is the key to life long success. Confidence is at the forefront of all player development. We fail forward, embracing every challenge, providing an environment where players won't fear failure, but chase success.
Attitude is everything. Cardinal FC is about embracing positivity and growth. How we behave in adversity is how we approach every day. As members of Cardinal FC, we demand the highest character from our players, families, coaches, and community.
Director Patrick Yon
"I have loved the game of soccer for as long as I can remember. When I was just a boy, I saw a guy named Edson Arantes do Nascimento (a.k.a. Pele) play for the New York Cosmos. Watching him play, I understood completely why Soccer is the 'Beautiful Game'."
Patrick maintains his love for soccer 40+ years after that first moment. His vast experiences playing and coaching brings a unique perspective and approach to player development. Past coaching assignments include club teams, travel teams, high schools, junior high schools, and programs for small children. He currently holds a D License with the U.S. Soccer Federation www.ussoccer.com.
