Our Leadership

The ‘I’ in SAI represents Influence. With Influence comes leadership and character building. Our students are not only conditioned to be the best on the soccer field but also to demonstrate strong character and self- development off the field.

Our self-development portion of the curriculum includes teaching students how to be geared towards a growth mindset, how to manage fear and anxiety, meditation and breathing exercises, and visualization.
