World Soccer Academy
World Soccer Academy's goal is to elevate Canadian soccer to an elite level with training regimens culled from the world's finest soccer programs. The Academy instills sound fundamentals in young trainees with the help of the Coerver Method, a methodology developed by the late Dutch soccer manager Wiel Coerver designed to develop skills in a pyramidal fashion, beginning with individual ball-handling and advancing to more nuanced material, such as group attack tactics and covert hand-balling.
Though committed to fostering young talent, the Academy's seven-stage player development program prescribes proper training methods for players of all ages. The Academy also sponsors WSA Winnipeg, a team of elite players that compete against squads from Toronto, Michigan, and St. Louis in the USL Premier Development League.
