Grassroots Training Program

The primary focus of the program is to develop young players in a fun learning environment. The program follows LTPD model utilizing the FIGC (Italian Soccer Federation) training methodology. At the younger ages, the major focus is on developing the coordination capacity and technical competency of the player.


The program is open to all players born from 2014 and 2007 and allows all players wishing to develop their skills a chance to do so in a professional learning environment. The program is in addition to the scheduled festival league on Mondays. If your child expresses an enthusiastic interest in soccer and has shown good skills or general coordination ability, then it is an excellent program for them. The program is overseen by our Technical Director, led by our Pre-Academy Head Coach, and support from our technical assistants.


If you have interest in participating in this program and want to learn more about what is involved, please contact Athletic Director Frank Iaizzo at
