Lakefront Soccer Academy 08U - 11U
Lakefront Soccer Academy provides supplemental training for boys and girls 08U - 11U (birth years 2012 - 2009), who are in a Travel Soccer Program and does not need to be affiliated with our club. The Academy consists of three blocks of 6 sessions that run during the winter months. Each session runs for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
- In blocks one and two, the objectives are to introduce and promote player development through technical training and the importance of technique as it applies to the game. The third block will add the component of simple decision making within the game.
- In each session we start with a fun activity which helps with developing the motor skills children need at this stage of their physical development.
- Players in the program will receive high level training directly from our coaching staff. All three blocks are located inside the Lakefront Indoor Complex at 865 Publishers Parkway in Webster NY. Each player also receives an Academy Training t-shirt.
