Strengthening our youth since 1996

PFA was created to bridge the gap between promising youth athletes and individual professional training and development.

Through consistent feedback and direct contact with PFA at any point in the day, training sessions are highly personalized and always productive.

What is the difference then? The intensity of the learning and the example set by Coach Diego to his athletes sets PFA apart from other programs. The expectations are high while the goals are still realistic. The results is not only a better athlete but, more importantly, a better and more capable person.
