LFC IAA Bay Area Mini Academy and Recreational (4v4) Programs: SIGN UP HERE

Here at LFC IAA Bay Area, we have a fantastic Mini-Academy & Instructional program, for ages 1 year old - 10 years old at based at the great Jewish Community Center in Los Gatos. At the club, we want to create our own soccer players and finding kids at such a young age is crucial for the clubs philosophy. Our aim is to find the next generation of soccer players and have them at the club all the way up in to college - that is our ultimate goal.

The ages that we are aiming for are very young, so we tailor all of our soccer sessions to entertain the kids as well as teaching them the very basic fundamentals of the game. We include SAQ (Speed, Agility, Quickness) work in to this program along with technical ball skills, small-sided play, inflatable jumpy houses and lots and lots of FUN!!
