Our goal is to provide students with a fun, challenging, competitive athletic opportunity. We strive to uphold the mission of Gonzaga Prep on the field and in the community. Our goal is to provide a safe environment where kids learn to compete, have fun, and better themselves as soccer players and as individuals. The importance of team and community is stressed while giving players the individual opportunity to improve technically, tactically, physically, and psychologically. Respect for referees, the opponent, one another, and the game itself will be stressed.
