Building confidence and enjoyment in young players
"Before kids can play like a pro, they must enjoy playing the game like a kid."

Learn to Play and Enjoy the Game With Confidence
Also known as our Advanced development Program (ADP), the pre-academy provides your young athlete with a strong foundation in soccer skills and knowledge. We build their confidence through mentorship, repetition, and socialization to prepare them for success as they grow. The program is composed of players age U6 and up, from beginner to intermediate, with program participants being grouped together based on their current ability. It is a great way for young players to explore the transition from recreational to a more structured competitive soccer experience. There are four key areas of focus at the Pre-Academy:
Footwork & Ball Control
Players will learn the core fundamentals of controlling and running with the ball.
Kids will learn attacking and defending in game scenarios against other players.
Passing & Shooting
We will teach kids how to properly pass and shoot using correct foot positioning.
Confidence & Socialization
We build confidence in children through positive reinforcement and support.
