The mission of the Pre-PDL Academy is to provide players with the opportunity to flourish in a competitive environment in which skill development is the key determinant of success. At the Academy, quality and long-term benefits are more important than short-term gain. The Pre-PDL Academy is designed for the passionate, excited 2010 (U8 and some U7) player who desires to be challenged in every aspect of their game. The Academy will offer a continued introduction to passing, receiving, ball striking, ball control, and dribbling; as well as a continued effort to expand each player's coordination, balance and body movements as well as confidence. The coaching staff has combined their experience and knowledge to create a curriculum which will both challenge and excite each Academy participant.

TOPSoccer brings soccer to players who refuse to let their challenges stop them from playing the sport that they love. The emphasis of this program is on development, training and providing meaningful participation rather than on competition.
The basis of TOPSoccer is a modified version of the game of soccer, specifically altered to allow full participation and enjoyment for each athlete.

SPRING 2018 SCHEDULE
DATES: Mondays, April 2, 9, 16, 23
PLACE: Warren Park
U6/U7 Junior academy
This academy-style program will allow our staff coaches to guide recreational coaches through training sessions with their own recreational teams. Individual technical development is the priority of each session. Staff will demonstrate how to emphasize individual improvement while still participating in their team training session. Each of the four one-hour sessions will concentrate on a specific topic that correlates with this age's curriculum and will be structured in a way that head coaches will run the session while staff coaches will assist and control the progression. This allows our staff to provide coaching education while encouraging player development.
Players who are interested in participating but whose team is not, will be added as an individual to an existing team for the academy. Coaches who are not available to be at the sessions can still send thier team and we will provide a staff trainer to coach the session.
RSVP is required to attend these sessions! RSVP to Jayme Beamer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please bring a ball and a water bottle.
