The Academy presents its 10th season of its Academy Skills Program! The Academy is an instructional program for children ages 5-12 years.  Professional coaches & Div. I SU Men's Soccer players will equip all players with advanced skills and knowledge of the game in a nurturing environment.  Your child will learn the basic fundamentals of soccer in a fun yet structured environment.  The academy program philosophy is to emphasize player development and focus on technical skill development of each child.  Practice is broken into stations incorporating dribbling, passing, trapping, shooting, ball skills, agility footwork, attacking & defending concepts into fun games.  Our goal is to make sure all players become technically sound on the ball, so that they can spend their time managing the challenges in the game, not the challenges of the ball, thus making soccer more enjoyable to play.  Todd Cook, Syracuse University Men's Soccer-Director of Operations, Northstars Soccer Club -Director of Coaching (2003 – Present), USSF National C-License, Skaneateles Girls Varsity Soccer Head Coach (2012-2014), 2012 & 2013 OHSL Liberty League Coach of the Year, 4- Year LeMoyne College Men’s Soccer Player 1998-2001, along with other qualified professionals will provide quality coaching, while helping youngsters build a love for the game!  Correct skills will be demonstrated by SU Div. I Men's Soccer Players for players to visualize what they will need to do.  Coaching staff will also stop game play during scrimmages to show concepts & simplify concepts.
