Ideal for players new to soccer, this level of play provides youth players with a fun environment where basic skills are introduced.
Each session includes 30-40 minutes of skill acquisition training. One of our top coaches and an assistant coach work with players on the fundamentals of dribbling, evading pressure, striking the ball, scoring and defending.
The remaining time in each session is spent on competition in fun scrimmage format. This prepares our players for a future in travel/competitive soccer.
Pre-Academy 1 (Ages 3-5)
Fall Session Starts August 2017
The focus is on just having fun with the kids - playing games that get them moving with the ball and scoring lots of goals. We carefully select coaches who know how to keep 3-5 year olds entertained and having fun.
Pre-Academy 2 (Ages 6-10)
Summer session enrollment is open.
This class is offered on Thursday evenings at 6 pm. Coaches work on the next level of skill acquisition - while preparing players for recreational or competitive play.
