Lake Forest Soccer Association prides itself on player development. The emphasis is not on winning but having each player perform to their fullest. Winning often comes as a result of proper player development.
Through weekly training, and at-home skill practicing, players are encouraged to maximize their potential and enjoyment of the game. Training focuses on the tactical, technical, physical and psychosocial development of the player. Through targeted drills and scrimmages, teams develop their skills and knowledge of the game.
Player training focuses on the following elements of soccer:
1 on 1 Defending
Off the Ball Runs
Speed of Play
System of Play
Our coaches prepare an individualized evaluation for each player twice a year – Fall and Spring. This allows players and parents to see a progression of skills. It also allows a player to focus training on areas of improvement. The evaluations are excellent training tools to let each player know where they are excelling and improving, and where they can continue their growth as a soccer player.
Coaches are available at any time, off-field, to discuss a players’ performance and goals.
