At Indy Premier we aim to develop players to the best of their ability by focusing on growth in the four pillars of the game: Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychological. Along with working on these four pillars as part of our club wide curriculum, we strive to grow each player’s passion and love of the game so they have increased desire to compete, work hard and improve. We expect all our players and teams to maintain the very highest standards with respect to sportsmanship and respect, which are staples of the Indy Premier experience.
