Yes Santa Rosa has a proud tradition of developing players who first master the ball at younger ages. We work to ensure every player is comfortable on the ball as our teams like to build out from the back and to maintain possession as much as possible while trying to be creative as possible in the attacking third of the field. When the opposition have the ball we like our teams to be very organized and to work individually and collectively to win the ball back as quickly as possible. At Santa Rosa United we have a boys director of soccer and Girls director of soccer who oversee all our teams to ensure the style of play is applied and understood and provides training periodization to ensure our players are familiar with all facets of the game.
