Lakelands Toros Soccer Club

Skills Development



The School of Excellence Program (SOE) acts as a bridge between recreation and travel soccer for all young players seeking higher levels of soccer instruction. Under a nationally established curriculum and guided by a passionate and committed professional coaching staff, the School of Excellence offers extraordinary player development.  The training environment is fun, structured and safe – a place where players can express themselves and learn what soccer has to offer.


  • Positions in the School of Excellence are awarded by invitation only. Our goal is to provide a focused environment for players to train. Our selection process will incorporate player skill level, enthusiasm for the game, and training behavior.
  • U7 & U8 Boys and Girls
  • 16-week program over Fall & Spring (1 Practice or game a week).
  • Each session will last 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  • Players in the School of Excellence will continue to train and play in the Recreation Program on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights.  

Weekly homework assignments will reinforce SOE lessons and will provide an opportunity for continual learning and development.

  • Please remember that it is a game and that our non-negotiable rules for the players are: Give your best effort, have a great attitude and always be ready to compete.
  • Parents remember to tell your children that you loved watching them play. On the car ride home ask your child what they think they did well while playing, or what was fun about it. Please refrain from telling what you think they needed to do better or what coach should’ve done, or their teammates should’ve done. Remember our focus is on the process, not the outcome (score).
