La Roca Soccer Experience Starts Here

The La Roca South Junior Academy program is for boys and girls born between 2015 and 2017.

Ariel Bravo, Director of Coaching for La Roca South, will serve as the Junior Academy’s Director. Ariel is a former professional soccer player who holds a B-level license from US Soccer. We are excited to offer these young players the best instruction as they begin their soccer journey.

Program Details

Ariel and his team of coaches will create a safe, positive environment for kids to develop their skills and have fun. The objective of the program is tap into their potential by teaching them the necessary foot skills and instilling a passion for soccer. We will focus on the hand-eye coordination and gross motor skills required for dribbling the ball, controlling the ball, passing, and shooting. We will also teach the basics of goalkeeping. This program will help prepare the kids for the next step, should they decide to pursue competitive soccer.

The program will provide two 1-hour training sessions a week during the summer, fall, and spring.
