Youth Rec Soccer for Northeast Seattle

Player Academy Program (U6)

The LVR Player Academy is an 8-week skills-development program designed for boys and girls entering kindergarten (age 5 / Under 6).  Since nearly all players are new to soccer, the focus will be on having fun, making new friends, learning about the game of soccer, and developing basic skills.  

Each week during the Player Academy, we will focus on skill development (dribbling, passing, shooting, etc) using small-sided games and activities to keep everyone engaged. Players are divided randomly into training squads and will be working each week with the same kids and volunteer coach. Volunteers will be giving a curriculum to follow consisting of games and activities to help the kids learn the fundamentals of soccer. 

The program will introduce scrimmages with a final session culminating in a tournament-style jamboree.  This is an entirely volunteer-run operation. We need parents to volunteer to work with the kids, so please let Alyssa Eckroth, volunteer program director, know if you are interested ([email protected]).

Key details: 

  • When:  Player Academy begins the Saturday after Labor Day and runs for 8-weeks, concluding at the end of October.  Sessions will run 10:30am-11:30am each week. 
  • Who:  Boys and girls age 5 (as of July 31) looking for an introduction to soccer.  Participation may be limited to the number of volunteer coaches that are available. 
  • Where:  All programming takes place at Eckstein Middle School soccer field. 
  • Cost:  $80 per player.
  • Coaching:  This program relies on parent volunteer coaches with technical support from LVR's youth game coordinators (youth referees). Each week, curriculum is provided to coaches to facilitate the training session.
