Academy philosophy

Strikers Academy is our unique program that provides a more intensive opportunity to focus on skill, technical training, and to assist players to reach their potential in the sport. It's comprised of both small-sided training and individual techniques.  Our Academy is our "bridge" between Micro Strikers, and our Competitive program, beginning around age 9. 

Mission Statement

The Strikers Academy mission is to provide a learning environment where players are free to explore their passion for the game, learn how to play better as an individual and a team mate, and prepare themselves for the challenges that will face them when they compete for spots on Strikers competitive travel teams, their school teams, or college teams.    

The Academy develops fundamental skills such as:​

-Dribbling & Directional Movement with and without the ball-

-Passing & Striking-

-Close Control & Juggling-

-Introductory Attacking & Defending Principles-

The Academy aims to help kids develop all of these techniques and skills in a fun and enjoyable environment.  Delivering fun coaching sessions with disguised techniques and introductory tactics will be the key behind our young players development and love for the game.

Strikers Academy does not focus on wins and losses.  The most important aspect of academy is the development of the individual and group as a whole. We measure our success based on the physical and mental improvements made by each child.  A coach’s results are publicly on display at every event and game.  We can measure the effects of a coach by a child’s beaming smile, respect, and the sportsmanship shown. Our hope is that everyone involved in this program mirrors this philosophy at all times.

"At a young age winning is not the most important thing ... the important thing is to develop creative and skilled players with good confidence."

-Arsene Wenger-
