Our efforts are to support the sport of soccer among children and the direct benefits are taking away the child's insecurities and creating a better urban environment for the community of Vallarta, including the personal responsibility for the child to attend and practice soccer.
Our trainer and coach, Mr. Javier Barajas Villagómez, a soccer player with exceptional records for 10 years, teaches not only the game, but also nutritional, psychological, discipline, character formation, personal habits and creating good students.
Our branch of the University Club in Puerto Vallarta, Pumas Vallarta, and our staff take advantage of the high prestige that is fostered in an organized way in the practice of soccer.
We aspire to giving solid footing in the personal development of our children and youth, thus actively participating in the integral formation of persons that are useful to society as well as bringing new prospects for the Club.
The certification of the Escuela de Futbol Infantil Filial Pumas b.c. was conducted on December 1, 2005.
