“Temecula FC to take youth development very seriously and become addicted to producing professional level players.” – Brandon Jantz, Temecula FC Owner
The Quails will be entering their 7th NPSL.com season this February.
As an ex-professional player Brandon Jantz knows what it takes to play at the next level. He says signing youth players 16-18 years of age that can get to MLS, USL or Europe will help us succeed.
“We have to challenge our staff and players every day to be better. We must develop players by 16-18 years of age while they are still living in the valley. Once they graduate high school most top players leave for college or move out of Temecula,” said Jantz.
Temecula has won the Riverside County Cup 2 of 3 times, which is great but the city needs NPSL success as well. Making the NPSL playoffs would be a great start. Jantz admits that this is a near impossible goal with the current financial situation of the club along with the current teen talent in the valley. “There is massive potential in the valley but it is not being developed properly. We need the top 16-18 year olds working alongside our NPSL (semi-pro team) right now. When we get players after their youth club or college (18-22 years of age) it takes us 2-3 years to develop them in the NPSL.”
“We need players, staff and sponsors deeply invested in the development of our youth in the community”, said Jantz.
