Elmbrook United’s Academy program provides a higher level of coaching and playing opportunities for committed players who desire advanced instruction and skill development.  It is designed specifically to help our youngest players improve technically by mastering core fundamentals and specific skills to increase each individual player’s ability with the ball. Additional focus is placed on decision making, with and without the ball, increasing our youngest players overall base of knowledge of the game. Players experience training and games in an atmosphere focused not on winning and losing, but on individual player development. More importantly, the kids are placed in a fun, safe and exciting environment with soccer at the forefront.
