If you are new to this program, this is a skill based program. Very little game play will take place unless it is in the course of the training activity:

Emphasis is on individual technical development such as: 

Ball Mastery (touches on the ball)  
Moves to beat opponents

Moves to create time and space
Checking to receive a pass

Receiving and turning with the ball
Mechanics of passing
Mechanics of Shooting
Mechanics of Heading
Speed, agility, balance, foot work, without the ball  

Catching, throwing, footwork, positioning    

The format of the academy will be as follows:  
full group functional warm up and stretching  
approximately 3, 25 minute stations of training, this allows time for short bathroom breaks, drinks, and rotation of groups.

Please note: each skill listed above will not be taught every week. Progression of activities will depend on the makeup of each group. Groups will be determined by age, ability, or both, whichever allows for the best learning to take place. Depending on the makeup of the groups, they could change weekly or remain the same.  

Instruction will be provided by the Coaching staff of the Women’s and Men’s soccer teams from St. Lawrence University, current and former players from both teams, and the FC Freeze Coaching Staff. 


**The training academy will also be used as an evaluation process for our FC FREEZE Travel Teams. Sign-up deadline for travel teams is in mid- March. Please see registration page
