What is an Academy Age Group ? An Academy age group is where a select group of players practice together and then every week certain players are selected to play in the age group above, receive additional training, be promoted to attend our Center of Excellence and also have the choice to practice up to 11 months of the year.

Teams can also have parents as coaches, professional coaches, play single seasons in a calendar year and go 12 months of the year.
What is a LFC IAA Bay Area Academy Age Group or Club Team ? At LFC IAA Bay Area we believe that there must be a plan, a structure, objective and opportunities. This means that we have a development model for players on teams and what they need to be given opportunities. Having a professional coach that is supported, educated and accountable acting as a teacher in soccer and respect. Our belief is that if you want to enjoy something then having the skills to perform are part of that and so training through out the year, playing in both seasons, doing tournaments, attending clinics and watching professional soccer are all part of the development model.
