Beautiful Game Academy

Monticello United Beautiful Game Academy

Academy Players  

Motivated 7-10 year-old soccer players (boys & girls) who want to attend, exhibit a definite interest in soccer, and come to play!  We anticipate 16 to 32 players who will be divided into 2 to 4 groups at each session. 

Academy Focus

The Academy focuses on developing players who love the game because they are growing in confidence with the ball, they are growing in their field awareness and understanding of how to use space on the field, and they are developing friendships in a competitive yet extremely encouraging environment. We strongly encourage and seek to nurture respect for others, humility, intensity and joy in using our athletic gifts, individual skill development, and team play.

Academy Structure & Details

- Experienced coaches on high-quality fields! 

- Fun drills & small-sided games provide players with countless repetition in game-like situations. 

- Thoughtful planning moves players from basic skill-development to implementation. 

- Close attention given to proper dribbling, passing, receiving, & finishing technique, using both feet. 

- Low player to coach ratio (approximately 8:1)

- Low player to ball ratio.  Frequent 1:1 or 2:1 player to ball ratio to maximize touches on the ball. 

- High encouragement to constructive-critique ratio. 

- Ample time allotted for coached scrimmages for players to experience the game and implement skills.
