Not quite ready to enter the world of travel soccer, but still interested in expanding your love and knowledge of the sport? Westonka Community Education and the Orono Westonka Soccer Club have come together to bring you the new Lakers Development Academy!
The focus of the development academy is on the fundamental building blocks of soccer by teaching the basics of dribbling, passing, receiving, finishing and defending. These skills are taught through a combination of individual training and small sided games.
In order to achieve a proper trainer to player ratio, the program will be limited to a maximum of 30 players. There are no try-outs for this program - players are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
Academy players participate in two nights a week indoors on the turf at 5314 Shoreline Drive, Mound MN 55364 or outdoors at Shirley Hills Soccer Fields. A third meeting will be scheduled once game availability is decided.
Develop basic techniques of dribbling, passing, receiving, finishing Develop strong, confident players Prepare for traveling soccer Develop a love and passion for the game Develop excellence in soccer
