Avon Lake Elite Training

Thank you for showing interest in the Avon Lake Academy Soccer program for the Fall 2019 season.  The ALSO Board has taken a long look at the Academy program and how it's evolved over the years and how the needs of our players have evolved too.  We're excited to announce that the Avon Lake Academy is now Avon Lake Elite Training!

What is Avon Lake Elite Training?

Avon Lake Elite Training is a unique offering for the travel soccer program.  Avon Lake Elite Training is an additional training session that focuses half of the session on soccer skills and tactics and the other half of the session on improving speed, agility, and power.  The Avon Lake Soccer Organization has partnered with The Force Sports Performance team to provide this opportunity to our Avon Lake soccer players.

U8 Development Academy

U8 Development Academy is offered to all registered Rec players at the U8 age group (birth year 2012 for the 2019-20 season).  The program is deigned to develop and improve player skills and understanding of the game of soccer.  This is particularly helpful to better prepare players for the travel level program the following year (starting at U9) should they desire.  The focus is on individual player development and improvement of dribbling, shooting, passing, and trapping techniques.

The program typically involves joint community training on Sundays in the Fall and Spring at no cost.  At a small incremental cost, winter training sessions are also offered with a professional coach as well as indoor league games typically at the Force in Rocky River.  The U8 Development season typically culminates in a local spring tournament for interested players.

The Registration "Elite Training" is not currently available.
