MISSION STATEMENT


It is our objective to focus on player development at all levels of play by building their skills, confidence, fitness, and sense of community and teamwork. We are also committed to the development of our coaches through coaching courses, online resources, and learning from more experienced coaches. We promote and encourage a high standard of sportsmanship and fair play.

ABOUT ACADEMY


The Soccer Academy promotes and emphasizes the abilities of our younger players ages 4 thru 9. The focus is on teaching the basics of soccer such as dribbling skills, properly kicking the soccer ball and on turns. As players learn new skills they are awarded patches for demonstrating their new skills. Players practice their skills in a variety of games and activities. All practices and Home games are at the Lions Club Park off of Bikle Road in Smithsburg.

The academy is divided into the following age groups for the Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 Seasons:

  • Tots Division: Players born in 2016 or 2017
  • Juniors Division: Players born in 2014 or 2015
  • Seniors (U9) Division: Players born in 2012 or 2013

WHAT IS NEEDED?


All players are required to wear shin guards. Socks should cover the shin guards at all times, ensuring players protection. Cleats are not required, but are encouraged. Tennis shoes are perfectly fine. Players are also encouraged to bring water to every session and game.

COMMITMENT
