(Lake County, IL): Registration for Heart of the City’s 2022 Fall Youth Soccer Academy is now open until August 5th for players born between 2008-2016.
“We are excited to start up our fall soccer academy this year,” said Adrian Roman, Community Programs Manager. “The Academy is a great foundation for a physical, healthy lifestyle. It teaches young players the fundamentals of soccer, as well as developing tactical and technical skills with the ball.”
The Fall program runs for eight weeks with professional coaches and top tier equipment. Participants gain basic soccer skills on the field, develop their athletic abilities, and improve their physical and emotional health. The team environment, with the guidance of coaches, helps build relationship, communication, and leadership skills.
Heart of the City’s soccer programs are intended to give student-athletes who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity, training, and resources to excel in soccer and develop successful pathways in a career and higher education.
The Fall program is a part of the pathway for athletes to be introduced to Heart of the City and eventually transition to other programs like the ELITE travel team or the referee/coach certification, which the organization offers.
Training will be held at Waukegan’s Greg Petry Sports Park throughout the months of August, September and October. Visit www.heartofthecitysports.org for registration and more information about Heart of the City programs.
