Here at FirstPoint USA, we are pleased to announce our partnership with ADP soccer, and are looking forward to working alongside Josh and his team. Throughout this partnership, we will be helping a number of ADP Academy players to secure sports scholarships across the states.
ADP Soccer Academy (Advanced Development Pathway) was established in 2014 by the current owner Josh Bill. The former Stoke City and Premier League soccer player moved to Canada in order to set up a successful soccer academy and to further his career as a coach.
ADP continues to provide professional coaching and the necessary pathways to help players achieve their soccer goals across the Greater Toronto Area. Starting as a small academy with solely Josh as a coach for two teams, ADP has since grown in stature. It now has over eight teams and seven highly qualified and experienced coaches. Andy Wilkinson and Rohan Ricketts are just two of the coaches with ADP who, at the height of their career, played professionally in the English Premier League.
ADP’s philosophy is based around giving the children the opportunity to play at the level they deserve and the highest level they can achieve. Their coaches are highly qualified and have many years’ experience in playing soccer and coaching individuals to a high standard, so they can understand the challenges that playing will bring.
ADP Soccer Academy run a number of programs. They feel this is extremely important as it gives them the opportunity to get into the local community, giving all players in all environments and abilities, an opportunity to learn soccer through their quality coaching techniques.
ADP Soccer Academy’s contacts have been built up over the years and these provide links for talented individuals to give them the opportunity to pursue their soccer pathway, whether it be within the English premier league, English lower leagues, Spanish soccer, or USA Scholarships etc.[caption id="attachment_11966" align="aligncenter" width="501"] Josh Bill - Owner and Founder of ADP[/caption]
