Roots Soccer Academy

Welcome to the RSA

Root’s Athletic Center is proud to host a series of top class programs for all ages and skill levels.  We offer soccer and other specialty programs for recreational level children all the way to elite level athletes.

Class Descriptions

Kids and parents will take the field together as we learn to kick, pass and dribble.  Our Turf Tykes will participate in exciting games and drills that will kick start their cognitive and motor skill development, build self-esteem and provide a fun and active learning environment to instill a lifelong love for the sport of soccer.

Mighty Kickers will gain their independence as they develop fundamental skills such as controlled dribbling, passing, shooting and receiving; as well as spatial awareness, balance and coordination.  Soccer instruction also teaches valuable social skills like following directions, taking turns, sharing, and peer interaction. With active and positive instruction our Mighty Kickers will gain the self-confidence and tools to grow.

Juniors will continue to develop techniques for dribbling, passing, shooting and receiving. Classes will apply these lessons to organized scrimmages designed to develop skills in a pressure free and developmental setting.  Each class will be a platform for success to encourage students to continue towards higher levels of soccer instruction.

In depth instruction will cater to the specific technical, tactical and physical skills required of the goalkeeper position.  Skill work includes diving, hand eye coordination, catching, 1 on 1’s, passing from feet and hands, jumping, footwork, positioning, agility and strength.

Striker training develops the technical, functional and tactical abilities for goal scorers.  Skills sets will include finishing, striking technique, foot work, heading /volleys, 1 on 1 attack, improvisation and creativity. Coaches will also stress the importance of off ball movement and team communication. 

Fast Feet clinics are designed to develop foot speed, quickness, power, explosiveness, and endurance.  Skill sets will apply directly to game play situations as we work to sharpen physical reactions to visual cues.  Developing these skills will increase acceleration and agility while conditioning the body and mind for more advanced competition.
