“US Club Soccer believes in the fundamental principle that any attempt to develop better players requires an effort to first develop better coaches,” said Kevin Payne, US Club Soccer CEO, when Kimet became an official Players First partner. “We can think of no better approach from which to learn than the LaLiga method of developing players.
