  • DETAILS

    The Prescient Soccer Academy Program is an exclusive 9-month program (September - May) that provides high-level SUPPLEMENTAL soccer training for youth soccer players (boys and girls). The program involves intense, high-level technical training that improves players' ball control, close control, skill execution, passing accuracy and technique, and shooting technique.

     

    Our goal is to provide unparalleled training by placing players in a professional setting (with professional expectations) and providing them with intense and detailed instruction. Our program is not for everyone—we are very selective on who is admitted into our Academy and who is retained in the program.

    • We believe intensity, focus, and discipline are the main driving forces in player development

    • At the same time we create a environment where the players are encouraged to let their personalities come out and enjoy their time on/off the field

    • Your child will be challenged but will learn how to cope with the pressure (and challenges) that are required to be a top player

    Players will train once/week at their designated time throughout the Fall/Winter/Spring seasons. Training times are offered in the PM and we do our best to ensure that they do not conflict with players' club training. Please refer to the schedule below to identify age-specific training dates.

     

    Weather Policy:

    • As we train indoors we will plan to train regardless of rain (including thunderstorms).

    • Only in severely inclement weather will we reschedule/cancel training.

    • If training is cancelled, you will received an email concerning this cancellation.

    • In the case of extreme weather that leads to multiple cancellations we will organize "make-up" sessions likely to occur on Saturdays or Sundays

  • SESSION FORMAT

    The Academy Sessions will run 1.5 hours in length and generally follow the following format:

    • 30 mins: Warm-Up & Technical Foundation Work

    • 30 mins: Advanced Ball Mastery & Tactical Concepts

    • 30 mins: Opposed Technical & Tactical Application (live pressure with attacking and defending players)

    • Coaches will work with a particular group for the entirety of the session (a coach will spend the entire 1.5 hours with the same group that particular day)

  • DO I HAVE TO COMMIT TO THE ENTIRE 9-MONTHS?

    IT IS PREFERRED. Please understand we are approaching this program purely from a soccer development perspective. We understand that you or your player may be involved in other activities however we strive to see improvement in each player that joins the Academy and in order to achieve such, consistency and commitment is required.

     
    We do offer sessions on a come as you'd please basis however, classes fill up at 10 players so there is no guarantee that you will be able to secure your spot every week. Additionally we are really trying to push for consistency because that is the only way you will see results. If your child misses here or there it's not a big deal but if you are coming sporadically or to only a few sessions each month we may ask that you hold off on attending until you are able to attend more frequently. This will open up this space for someone who is able to attend consistently.

     

    We LOVE transparency so to be very clear, this is in no way financially motivated. We are truly invested in the development of the players that we work with and we feel as though it's only fair to Prescient Soccer's vision and you (as the parent/financier) to have a commitment. Our team has years of experience and over said years it's proven counterproductive to work with players sporadically. We almost always find that lack of consistency leads to stagnation in player development which ultimately leads to lost potential and wasted dollars (paid by you).


    We want measurable results and we want players to have an experience that they won't have anywhere else. That is why we offer the resources, accountability, and length of training that we do. At the end of the 9-month cycle we can guarantee that players will experience growth in the following areas:

    • Technical Ability

    • Tactical Understanding

    • Psychological Fortitude

    While it's vital to attend every session as each week will build off of the preceding week(s) we understand conflicts may pop-up. We just ask that you communicate absences to us in our software if you plan to miss a particular date.
