LFC IA Bay Area
The San Jose Earthquakes Partners in Development Training Program: The program is a collaborative and inclusive effort between motivated youth development clubs throughout Northern California to identify, develop and inspire young players to new heights.
LFC IAA Bay Area was among those invited to participate in the program which includes both ongoing coach education, club collaboration and player development opportunities. Top coaches and directors from local clubs come together in both formal and informal settings to share and learn best practices and innovative trends, including topics on skill development, youth programming and club development.
The program also includes a unique training program for the region’s high-potential players, identified and invited by each participating club. Players are trained in areas such as technical mastery and intelligent positioning and small-sided games. One of the main objectives of the program is to help all clubs realize the importance of developing a strong skill set at the pre-formation ages (7-11), with all players falling in the U-10 and U-12 age ranges.
San Jose Earthquakes Academy: We are especially proud of our partnership with the San Jose Earthquakes Academy as a tier 1 youth program in the bay area. The details or our program are that players come to LFC IA Bay Area from all parts of the community and they want to be developed through our detailed model, curriculum and licensed staff in order to be pre-pared for the next level. Our teams play across bronze, silver, gold and premier and we want to take individuals and give them the skill to be selected for the San Jose Earthquakes Academy at every age of competitive soccer.
