Lakelands Toros Soccer Club

Junior Academy

The Toros Junior Academy is a program designed for 7-11 year old boys and girls interested in making an initial, partial step toward Select competitive, travel soccer. The Junior Academy program is a great learning venue for our younger players and one in which they can develop a real love for the game. There are two seasons a year in the Junior Academy - Fall and Spring.


All Junior Academy teams are coached by professional, state and Nationally licensed coaches. Our coaches aim to develop technical ability as well as introducing tactical awareness to our players. During the season, Junior Academy players practice two times a week, play one games night a week (optional), play 8-10 games in the sandlapper league and attend one tournament. We also encourage all of the players in the Academy program to train on their own or with friends and to watch as much soccer as possible.


Compared with a full, Select travel program, the Academy offers reduced expenses, a shorter season (just three months), and reduced travel and weekend commitments.
