LeftFoot Soccer Academy is the over arching branch of the facility dedicated to enriching the community and providing opportunities for soccer to occur within our Academy walls.
“All Ways a Leftie" clarifies that membership is inclusive and all encompassing on different levels - we can in "all ways" participate together through the journey of youth soccer for ourselves and others. LeftFoot is an idea that we practice our technical expertise to enable us to play soccer together for a different purpose than a competitive team. LeftFoot gives us the permission to practice, prepare and perform in a whole new way.
Summer at LeftFoot Coaching Academy is always designed from the standpoint of making great players. What can we do to make every player better? Not just playing World Cup or funky socks day. But true development of all of the skills and tools of the best coaching environment within a small group design. It's personal training with a couple of extra players involved.
At the end of the journey for youth soccer players aged sixteen to twenty to hone their skills with other friends to begin to give back to the game. Our Elite Series is designed for players at the Elite Clubs National League and/or playing at a very high level of soccer each summer. Senior Academy students also are part of our Coaching Practicum program along three separate tracks.
The Junior Academy Series is for players between the ages of thirteen (U13) and sixteen (U16) who want to randomly attend classes through the course of a year. Junior Academy students begin the journey through LeftFoot by learning the Six Essential Skills of Every Great Player™ in the Foundation Series. Junior Academy students have the option to progress through the Combination Series and the Creative Series through either Course options or through our Academy formula.
Children learn through play and guided discovery - we all know that. Our Youth Academy is an innovative design of "play and instruction" which allows our Academy of Coaches to guide players through three unique progressions of LeftFoot Coaching Academy for soccer players 9-13 years old. For those players that are beginning their journey through youth soccer, our Youth Academy is designed to raise the “cream to the top.”
The LeftFoot Coach: Organizer, Teacher and Coach. The difference between the three roles is how we grow in our experience as leaders of children. At LeftFoot, these three roles encapsulate our power to influence beyond what most refer to as training. Training is only organized workouts. Coaching is the spiritual guidance of another person to a place in themselves that they didn’t realize was possible. Coaching is the bridge between mere tasks and the emotional self that believes in making a difference - it’s what truly matters when we make players better, not just through technique, but through guiding families through the journey of youth soccer.
