ACADEMY (U7 - U13)

Next Level Academy is a 10 month technical soccer training program (August 2024-May 2025) for rising U7 (2019/2018 born) to rising U12/13 (2013/12 born) boys and girls. NLA has been the leader in player development for 24+ years providing the highest level of technical skill training. The NLA coaching staff's unique, competitive, and fun training environments along with their unmatched experience within the U7-U13 age groups, has consistently prepared players for success during their most important development years. The instruction for Academy players will focus on their creativity, speed, soccer agility, and the overall player's confidence while competing against their peers in various game-like situations. NLA training supplements a player's club team and will not interfere with their outdoor practices, games, or tournaments.
