ACADEMY JUNIORS LEAGUE | Ages 4-14

LOUISVILLE: Aug 22-Oct 29 | OLDHAM: Sep 7-Oct 29

The Academy Juniors League (AJL) provides a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate environment for young players to come to learn the game of soccer through training and gameplay. We help players aged 4 to 14 grow in the sport by introducing them to formalized weekend game-play in addition to weekly training sessions.
 

Participants in the Academy Juniors League practice once per week in sessions facilitated by paid coaches and supported by Academy Directors. Our specialized curriculum helps players grow their technical skills and apply these skills in age-appropriate game-day environments.

  • Game Days will be between 8am-12pm; Each age group is invited at one time and players are broken up into different teams each game day

·       Practices are held once per week on Mondays for 50 minutes and games are played at Lynn Family Sports Vision & Training fields

  • Hosted at our LOUISVILLE and OLDHAM locations
  • Will host 2 crossover game days between locations throughout each session.

DEVELOPMENT CENTERS | Ages 4-12

LOUISVILLE: Fall I Sep 2-Oct 7 | Fall II Oct 14-Nov 18

This is a separate program from the recreational league and does not include games on Saturdays. In this six-week program, the sessions are designed to build a strong technical foundation in young players, ages 4-12, as well as promote quick decision-making through the use of small-sided games.

 

Our professional staff will model various individual skills and techniques used to beat opponents in 1v1 and 2v1 situations, then encourage players to try these skills in 1v1, 2v2 and 3v3 games. This program is great for players looking to develop the skills necessary to be successful in our Academy.

 

  • 6-Session Program 
  • 1-50 Minute Session per Week
