Academy Program

Phoenix Soccer Academy Program

The Fond du Lac Soccer Association "Phoenix Academy" is a program available to girls and boys in the U8 and U10 age groups ages 7-10. Soccer Academy programs are designed to bridge the gap between recreation league and select (competitive) league play focusing on player development from professional coaching to create the best possible environment for our youth soccer players to excel once they reach the select level at U11. 

Phoenix Academy Details: ​

  • Academy Program Coaches: The Academy program will be led by the Head Coach of Marian University Men's Team; Craig Peltonen and members of his staff and both the men's and women's teams. 
  • All players of an age group will train together but each session will include small sided games and a scrimmage. 
  • Training Structure: 

    • 15-20 minutes of quick multi touches on the ball.

    • 15-20 minutes of a small activity/game that will either bring out repetitions for dribbling to beat a player, dribbling for possession, passing, receiving, or striking a ball. (we will build on skills week after week and focus on a different skill each week).
