Los Angeles Soccer Academy
A staff of seasoned coaches presides over the pitch at Los Angeles Soccer Academy, teaching aspiring strikers the fundamentals of the game with a comprehensive and well-rounded developmental strategy. The USSF-licensed instructors strive to foster technical ball-control skills with the aim of instilling confidence in players to handle the pressures of the game, such as an oncoming defender or a territorial tuft of grass. After achieving comfort with the ball, pupils will be more adept at executing team-oriented strategies, such as retaining the right shape in their formation, improvising with fellow teammates, and visualizing and executing the right plays. The academy drives home its developmental strategies with drills that emphasize the possession-first philosophies of Spain, the fruitful four-on-four groundwork of Holland, and the soft-cheese-fueled training regimes of southern France. Though it is involved with competitive leagues, the academy offers camps and clinics for players of all abilities.
