Soccer Program Curriculum

How it works

Week 1 (2).png

We divide students in our soccer program by age group to better serve your child's developmental needs.

Classes last for 45-50 minutes and are once a week for 8 weeks. We have multiple class times for each age group to accommodate different schedules.

Our coaches lead games and drills to build both athletic and social skills. Each week focuses on a specific soccer skill. We routinely change the drills and games to keep sessions engaging for returning students.

Week 1: introductions and touches on the ball. Week 2: dribbling. Week 3: Trapping. Week 4: Passing. Week 5: Shooting. Week 6: combined dribbling and shooting. Week 7: combined passing and shooting. Week 8: combined passing, shooting, and dribbling.

The Next Step

If your child has already gone through Soccer Cubs or has other soccer experience, La Academia may be a better fit for you.

La Academia is our indoor soccer training program for kids 5–14 years old. Kids in the program attend weekly practice taught by a licensed coach and play in one of our weekend youth soccer leagues.

We recommend La Academia for young soccer players who want to continue honing their skills. This is also a great option for kids who play club soccer but want to continue playing in the off-season.
