The Building Blocks for a Lifetime of Loving Soccer

Academy Soccer is a fun introduction to the game of soccer

Junior Academy is designed to be fun and interactive. We utilize unique games to focus on basic soccer skills like dribbling, passing and shooting. Our goal is to cultivate a love of the game at an early age.

For players 3 to 5 years old!

Senior Academy while similar to the Junior Academy with the use of fun games focuses on the individual skills, and introducing small sided games. The Senior Academy helps prepare players for healthy competition at older age groups.

For players 6 to 8 years old!


Small-sided standards are youth games played with less than 11 players on each team. Playing with less players on the field means that players are constantly involved in play and provided with more opportunities for touches on the ball and overall player development. Not only are there fewer players, but small-sided games also use smaller fields, goals and balls, shorter game times and some different rules to optimize the game for younger players.

The Academy Director Oversees All Aspects Of The Program, And Works Close With The Volunteer Coaches To Ensure The Program Stays True To Our Goals.

Any specific questions about the Academy program please contact the LOUYAA Alliance Academy Director,  Brian Custer at or contact or Academy Manager Laura Densock at

Academy Soccer: A Foundational Philosophy

Academy soccer at its core is built on the joy that comes from the game. It is made to be enjoyable and fun. Players are encouraged to work hard, play fairly, enjoy the process of achieving individual ball mastery, practice with imagination and creativity without fear. They also need to learn to cooperate with teammates in practice and game scenarios whilst respecting opponents and officials.

Each level gradually increases the emphasis of these elements. Our youngest academy groups are building skills through fun games that focus on a new concept each week. Our older groups are building toward developing individually while working as a team in a more game like and tactical focused training.

Players should be competitive but understand that development is placed above winning during the academy stages. Our staff works to ensure players don’t fear failure, but instead use it as a platform to build up players into strong, confident players and people.

NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AFTER COMPLETION OF THE FIRST WEEK OF PRACTICE, Before Said Time Refunds Are Issued at The Commissioners Discretion
