Academy Director/ Founder - Steven Arroway
Soul2Sole Soccer Academy was established in the summer of 2017 when a High School soccer coach saw a need for specialized soccer training for young Athletes.
Steven has Coached all over the top clubs and High Schools from all around Orange County! From starting his coaching career at AC Brea as a Youngers coach and eventual youth coordinator, to moving on to Strikers FC and Legends FC. All while coaching at El Dorado as a JV coach during 2017 and their CIF title to going to Orange Lutheran Varsity Assistant and lastly Esperanza JV coach from 2019-2021.
The original founder Steven Arroway began training Athletes from all over the Orange County Area, traveling from session to session. After training for hours on end, back and forth to different parks and fields, and most of the time training these kids for Free, we knew we had something special brewing. From this, our Company “Soul2Sole Soccer Academy” was founded with the principle operating quote of “TOUCH THEIR SOUL, TEACH THEIR SOLE” As an athlete, we all know that development doesn’t happen overnight and needs to fostered over time, that time and dedication only come through the Love for the Game and the Want to be better!!
Our Founding Quote of “Touch their Soul, Teach their Sole” is the basis of our Academy!
If you’re able to connect to the athlete personally and show you actually care about their development, that’s when the real development and progress comes!
