Learn to Play -- Develop Skills -- Build Character

The Academy is for players who are committed to maximizing their potential as soccer players in a more structured training environment than our recreational program. We are one of the original members of the Lousiana Soccer Academy Program, and we are serious about player development.

Academy players pose with their technical trainers

1. Learn to play the game - by developing game intelligence & understanding

2. Develop the required skills - through training in ball mastery & physical movement

3. Build the character needed - such as positivity, confidence, and perseverance

Academy is open to all players in the 9U-10U age groups (players born in 2012 and 2013).

Residents of Rec District 14 will have priority for entry into the program

While the program is open to anyone, it is specifically intended for players that want to commit to training and developing their individual soccer skills.

Academy slots are limited to the max capacity the staff can properly train. Players will be accepted into the program in the order of registration.

All Academy teams are led by licensed head coaches (US Soccer Federation). Additionally, players receive ball mastery training with dedicated technical trainers.

Throughout training, we focus on individual player development, not team success.

Team Fees

Estimate: $100

Teams usually cover this fee fully through sponsor donations and fundraising, so often this is actually $0. We ask our parents to solicit corporate sponsors to offset these costs. In any case, parents need to be prepared to pay some amount below this to cover any fundraising shortfalls. This money covers jamborees/tournaments, referees, and other misc expenses

The first step is to attend the Academy pre-season "sample session". This is an opportunity to meet the coaches, learn more about the program, and experience the training environment. Further instructions on registering for the program are provided at the sample session.

Saturday July 24th, 9:00AM, Coquille Park, Field 9
