Welcome to the LSS Soccer Academy!
The LSS Soccer Academy is a credited course offered during school hours. Students earn PHE Credits while learning the game they love. This academy is open to all Langley Students in Grades 9-12 of any skill level. The Soccer Academy will run in Semester 2 from February to June. Although the academy will cost $500/student (clothing, gym membership, field trips and guest coaches), it is the cheapest school academy in the Fraser Valley and scholarships are available. If money is an issue, we will help!
Students in the academy will receive tactical knowledge, psychological/motivational training, technical development, and physical fitness on the field, in the classroom, and in the weight room. Much of the course will be based on European (Portuguese) and South American (Brazilian) methodologies. The academy will also follow the LTPD Program set out by Soccer Canada.
Coach: Geoff Labine
|The Soccer Academy will follow the Principle of Periodization. The curriculum is designed to complement a student’s current playing schedule or lack thereof.|
The Soccer Academy will also include a Small-Sided Referee Clinic hosted by BC Soccer as well as Mental Health, CPR and Dance Units required by the BC Education PHE Curriculum. Core Curricular concepts of Personal Awareness and Social Responsibility, Cultural Identity, Creative and Critical Thinking, and Communication is embedded into the program.
Sample Schedule for the Soccer Academy
February-June: Some fields may change to gym/lacrosse box days depending on weather.
|Block 1||Gym||Classroom||Health Unit||Gym||Class/PHE|
The Soccer academy will primarily use MacLeod Oval Synthetic Turf Field and a grass field (Michael J. Smith South or Macleod Northwest – Eric BySouth). There may be times where other academies or LSS PHE classes will be using the turf field so a second location (grass field/lacrosse box) may be used.
