The Jr. Academy's goal is to focus primarily on skills and building confidence. Our professional coaches are eager for players to excel in their strengths and improve in their weaknesses. Its' crucial for any young soccer player to get comfortable with the ball at their feet. Tehrefore, at JSSA, our coaches persist on getting as many touches on the ball as possible. No lines, all fun and games!

We understand how to break down, demonstrate and articulate the fundamental skills. In a fun game orientated session, we repeat and train those skills until they become second nature. In addition to developing the technical skills of each player, JSSA is committed to spending time on tactical thinking during games. We strive to bring out the best in every player and help them realize their full potential.
