Training Methodology

We are first and foremost a training organization with a mission to maximize the development of all of our players. Through an effective training philosophy, we believe that we can reach our developmental goals more efficiently than our competitors.

We offer a stimulating and progressive model to all of our teams which we train. In drill and activity selection, we believe it is important for coaches to precisely gauge the level of each group that they train and select activities which best fulfill the players needs pertaining to each component of soccer. Younger or less advanced groups will work on a different set of activities and place more or less emphasis on certain components of soccer than older or more advanced groups. And training sessions are progressive, meaning that each activity, variation of an activity, and training session leads into the next.

We believe it is important to develop physicality and technique, but we place a special emphasis on the development of decision making because the brain is the most important muscle in soccer and the level of intelligence is what separates great players from average players.

In order to develop a players decision making ability, coaches prioritize placing players in game related situations related to the various components of soccer such as possession, counterattacking, switching play, etc where they can practice making the correct decisions.

It is important to allow players to develop by thinking for themselves and making their own decisions so our coaches do not over coach. However, our coaches know when to step in when and make fundamental corrections when players need to be corrected.

Our coaches are also very energetic, positive, and encouraging in training sessions. We believe that the attitude, work ethic, professionalism, and energy of the coach trickles down to the players.

History Of World Class

The World Class Soccer Group is a youth soccer organization that provides a wide ranging and essential mix of services aimed at developing youth soccer players, teams, and coaches. Our organization is adept and capable of providing our clients with soccer clinics, individual training, team training, soccer camps, college recruiting services, and coaching education.

Our group began 25 years ago as the #1 soccer camp in Northern NJ, and has continuously evolved and expanded since then. Over this time period we have owned and operated multiple indoor sports facilities, directed and trained both premier and local soccer clubs, developed a wide ranging network of contacts and affiliates from professional teams and the national level. We have now evolved to the point where we have the capacity and experts/personal to handle almost all youth soccer needs.

Our mission involves two fundamental components. One is to provide high quality service to our clients which translates to soccer players and teams maximizing their potential on the field. The other component involves developing human beings with great values, full of confidence, and great sportsmanship. We recognize that soccer is more than just a game, it is force that captures the attention and passion of the general population in a profound way. And our role as youth soccer directors, coaches, and administrators is more than a business, it is an opportunity to shape the lives of kids in a positive way.

About the Director

Kazbek’s unlikely soccer journey and experiences have placed him in a unique position, enabling him to pass on very useful and relevant knowledge to the youth soccer world of today.

What is unique about the director of World Class Soccer, Kazbek Tambi, is that he grew up locally in the suburb of Ridgewood NJ,  where he also excelled as a student, before making it as a high level professional playing alongside top international stars. No one foresaw this level of success as Kazbek was a very average athlete, and during these days, most of the pros came from foreign countries, and the few Americans that made it typically came from the big cities, where soccer was then more popular.

Kazbek is the son of refugee/immigrant parents who were limited in time to support their children’s after school activities as they worked double shifts at factory jobs in order to raise their children in a town with a good school system.  Therefore Kazbek had limited parental involvement in his soccer journey and thus relied on his own passion for the sport to drive him to success, and in this process learned many important lessons.

Despite the odds against him, Kazbek managed to make it as an elite collegiate player and team captain at Columbia University, which he helped lead to 4 straight Ivy League titles and the NCAA Final 4. After college, Kazbek did earn a captaincy role with the US Olympic Team and the NY Cosmos professional squad. He also continued his education, earning a law degree, and became a licensed attorney. After his playing days, with an enthusiasm to help young players to reach their goals, Kazbek did join the coaching ranks;  taking on youth teams, college teams and US National Teams. Kazbek is proud to have helped scores of players move up the ladder to collegiate, national and professional levels.
