Academy Program Boys and Girls (u9 to u12)
The LSA Academy program is intended for those players who are looking to play a higher level of soccer and prepare for Select-level soccer which is available at U13, and above
Players are expected to have a high level of commitment to the development of their soccer skills. As part of LSA's Academy, our players develop both their technical, tactical skills, as well as psychological and physical.
Players in our Academy program will be provided with professional trainers who have multiple years of coaching experience and an extensive background playing soccer at the highest levels of the game. Players will be given the opportunity to utilize their skills and accelerate their development through weekly competition with other high-level soccer teams throughout the metro Atlanta area, as well as competing in both pre-season and post-season tournaments.
Select Soccer (u13 and up)
The LSA Select program is intended for those players that are looking to play a high level of competitive soccer at U13, and above.
Players are expected to have a high level of commitment to the development of their soccer skills. As part of LSA's Select program, our players further develop both their technical and tactical skills while learning a more strategic vision of the game of soccer. With skills learned from our Select program and assistance from the LSA in College program many of our players have the opportunity to play soccer at the collegiate level while advancing their education towards a college degree.
Players in our Select program will be provided with professional trainers who have multiple years of coaching experience and an extensive background playing soccer at the highest levels of the game. Players will be given the opportunity to utilize their skills and accelerate their development through weekly competition with other Select-level teams from around Georgia. Games for the Select program teams are administered by Georgia Soccer. Although many competitive Select-level teams are from the metro Atlanta area, our Select teams do occasionally compete against teams from more remote areas of Georgia. In fairness to all Select teams throughout the State, Georgia Soccer schedules 50% of each team's games at their home field.
Each Select team will participate in at least 1 pre-season and post-season tournament. Higher-performing teams may have the opportunity to participate in 2 tournaments before or after the season.
For players in the LSA Select program that are interested in playing the Goalkeeper position, in addition to team training, LSA also provides our players with goalkeeper training from our excellent staff of goalkeeper coaches.
