The Alliance Academy Lille Shall
Who We Are: Within the Academy LS structure, we aim to provide youth soccer players with a challenging program that offers a pathway to progress through the Sport at the highest level. A “year-round” program that provides more insight with understanding of the game. We know that this will give players the tools to advance to the collegiate or professional level if they desire. We will have girl’s and boy’s teams at each age group starting at the U-12 age group, as we believe it to be appropriate for a higher level of commitment and focus at this age.
Our Objective: The primary focus for the Academy LS is simple: to develop complete soccer players and provide a platform to maximize potential. Academy players will develop a more in-depth technical, physical and tactical application of the game with support and education from Alliance’s committed coaching staff.
Academy LS Pathway: All players have the opportunity to try out for the Academy LS. This pathway requires you to be able to commit to participation in leagues of varying levels, practice 3 times per week, and strategic travel in and out of the KC Metro area. Prospective players may train with the team throughout the year. Academy LS players will be exposed to the other coaches (college coaches, Alliance coaches, etc.).
What We Achieve: We want our players at a level that advances their skills, knowledge and passion for soccer. Our aim is to create a fluid and transparent training environment, and soccer experience geared to reaching the higher echelons of the sport.
Alliance FC Academy LS commitments
- Fall and Spring:
- Train 3x per week
- Play in local competition, state, regional and possibly national leagues.
- Maximum of 3 team events based on the needs of a team (i.e. training 1 time per week and in 2 different leagues, 2 training days with 1 league or mixture of training events, tactical days, and games)
- Players profiles, evaluations, and a timeline of player progressions will be created and archived as players progress through the Academy system.
The Academy program does not exclude players from participating in other sports/activities. However, frequent communication with coaches is vital to fulfilling players goals within the framework of the Academy. We believe that everyone contributes to the success of the team.
