About the Academy:
A premier level academy program that runs from August to June for soccer players who are interested in competing at the highest possible level in the future. It’s the next step after travel soccer and competitive soccer. We provide guidance, education and professional instruction to each player, with a focus on developing the technical aspects as well as the other 4 major components (tactical, physical, & psychological) of the game.
Our mission is to strive for excellence in creating an atmosphere that will provide the best player development in a fun, competitive environment that fosters a love and passion for the beautiful game.
“Player Development” vs “Winning”
While we demand that our players strive to be competitive and win every time they take the field for training or games, winning is not the primary objective for our academy. Our primary objective is centered around, and driven by, the goal of developing individual players in competitive environment that allows them to develop passion for the game. To achieve such objective, we must allow players to make mistakes even if losing the game is the outcome. We believe that winning games will ultimately be a byproduct of our ability to develop well-rounded players. Therefore, winning every game is not our primary objective and will not be how we measure our success as an academy.
A variety of competition options within US Club Soccer and US Youth Soccer but not limited to the following; Connecticut Club Soccer League & US Club Cup competitions, CJSA Premier League & Cup, academy created league, friendly games versus other premier clubs, local and out of state tournaments. Our academy players will be competing in the best competition possible to enhance their development.
