U7 Academy Information & Lesson Plans

MYS U7 Academy

McLean Youth Soccer U7 Teams form our U7 Academy, where every player receives professional training, and all of our volunteer Parent Coaches are offered mentoring and guidance.   Four to six teams each hour practice in one location, using session plans from the Academy Director.  Every other week, the team's session is run by a professional Staff Coach, assisted by the Parent Coach.  The aim is to help both the coaches and the players!
