X-Uvia Professional Soccer Academy worldwide was established in 2003 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and, was extracted from the word Exuviate. Exuviate is what we do, it is the building block of our success in the development of players to obtain very high levels in soccer/football.
Our members are taught the importance of each pillar in the Academy’s methodology; these pillars are embedded in our players because they are imperative to their success as footballers.
Above and beyond the four (4) pillars is the pre-requisite of having a positive attitude and respect. XPSA players must possess a positive attitude to join our academy
Hello, my name is Lael
It’s my first time to be in an academy and I like it same as both my coaches (Coach Richard and coach Ed).
The coaches always want us to work hard and they give us some minutes to rest. they always tell us to push hard even if we are tired. Anyways if i had to stay there for many years it will be great because i will be a better soccer player.
When I was playing for my old team that I played with for a long time (I started competitive in 2016), there wasn’t much of a competitive environment and I didn’t feel like I was getting better. There wasn’t any major improvement I could see. When I joined Xuvia, even in my first practice, I could tell that this was a different atmosphere. My skill level has improved greatly and the change of environment is huge. After a while, I knew I was definitely getting better because of the extra work the coaches consistently encouraged us to do and other skills they taught us!
I Started playing soccer at the age of nine and before I joined X uvia. I couldn’t even juggle past two, but now since I have been training with X uvia for three years, now I can juggle up to 950 plus (even past 2 min).
My technical and physical abilities have drastically improved since I Started playing with this academy. I love playing with this team because the practices are always intense and tough. Coach Ed and Coach Richard push us to our limit, and always makes sure everyone on the team gives maximum effort.
Xuvia is the base of professional development. A club that provides the right mindset, attitude and skill set to ensure that all their players have what it takes to reach the next level. With a professional and unbiased coach that can provide all the right information and never give up on any player that is willing to learn and dedicate themselves to improving as a player.
I think that X-uvia Soccer Academy is a great academy to improve young players who want to make it to the highest level and to help them get better at soccer. For example, when I first joined the team, I wasn’t that good yet but I focused and I came to practice everyday and that’s when I developed and improved my skills.
X-uvia is the best soccer academy in Ontario.The coaches are friendly and they welcome everybody that wants to succeed at the highest level in soccer. They will help every player and they will not leave someone behind.The players love doing challenges that their coaches give them. All the players at x-uvia are hard workers and never give up.
Coach Richard is a very good mentor for many reasons. Firstly, he values his relationships between coach and player. We see this with the way he cares for his players’ well-being. He plays more than a coach role, but is also a father figure to many players, including myself.
Additionally, he has undergone and passed along a lot of experience, knowledge, and uses his connections to help. He passes on information and knowledge of the game that will get us to the next level. Personally, this has given me the ability to play overseas and gain even more experience over there to grow. The Club has helped me to become the player that I am today by providing me with opportunities.
Coach Richard is very knowledgeable and teaches players concepts and techniques that other coaches cannot teach. A solid and honest man who has aided me to be a more deadly and effective player. Honest and reliable man who will always tell you the truth. The best coach I have ever had.
Coach Richard explains things very detailed so you can understand well and quickly, he has a lot of experience in soccer because he played professional. He always encourages us to give our best and helps me improve every aspect of my game. Coach Richard is the best coach I’ve ever had, he has made confident and a better player.
