Program Information

Our summer programs run for 4 days (Monday to Thursday) and include key skill development components along with soccer matches. There will be a heavy emphasis placed on footwork, passing, and shooting. The philosophy behind our training programs is that the mastery of fundamental soccer movements will lead to increased performance. Mastery of these movements is achieved using our age appropriate system of drills designed to build muscle memory. Our summer and winter clinics are designed for players of all abilities, benefitting novice to elite level players.

Players will be grouped in the summer into the best possible fit based on age, sex, and skill level.

Field Directions

Additional Info

Staff

The staff to player ratio at all programs will be no greater than 10:1. Our coaches possess a comprehensive knowledge of the game, and have the enthusiasm and skill to teach players of all abilities and ages. Please email for a more comprehensive description of the coaches for certain programs.

Professional Player Availability

Our aim is to have a professional player appear at each clinic at least once. The following players have appeared at our programs: Shalrie Joseph, Avery John, Leslie Osborne, Kevin Alston, Matt Reis, Cat Whitehill, and Darrius Barnes. Due to potential professional game conflicts, some clinics may have limited or no professional player appearances.

We have a top notch coaching staff of elite local coaches in addition to our professional player component. Many of our coaches currently work at the college and high school level.

Inclement Weather

In the case of rain, the Academy will continue at the discretion of the head coach. If there is heavy rain, and/or inclement weather (hail, thunder/lightning, extreme heat, high winds) the Academy will be stopped and all players/coaches will seek cover. Some sites have onsite indoor facilities; other sites will have indoor facilities in the surrounding area. If indoor space is available, it will be utilized. If there is no indoor facility, we will make every possible effort to make up lost time (either by starting earlier or ending later on a subsequent day, adding additional days, or allowing missed days to be made up at a program later in the summer). Fridays are usually the make-up day.

Goalkeepers

Goalkeepers are welcome to come to the Academy – however there will not be a separate goalkeeper program. We believe that having basic soccer skills is essential even for goalkeepers. When matches are played goalkeepers may be used in the nets depending on the circumstances.

Team Discounts

For team’s registering six or more players, all players will receive a $25 discount. Please contact us with questions or for further details.

T-Shirts

For 2017, t-shirts can be purchased separately on site. The cost of the t-shirt is $15, players are not required to buy a t-shirt.

Refund Policy

Due to staffing and facility costs there is a no refund policy, with the exception of a medical problem. If you need to cancel, an account credit will be issued that can be applied towards any future program.
