Progressive Soccer Curriculum

The XL Academy soccer curriculum has been created by a combination of USSF A licensed coaches, professional players, NCAA Division 1, 2 and 3 coaches, and Academy Directors from the English Premier League.

 

Bringing these minds together has developed a challenging curriculum while keeping the safety and recovery of players at an absolute priority.

The custom designed soccer curriculum has been created to keep both player development and game understanding at the forefront, while constant monitoring avoids overload and impact injuries. This includes:

  • Physical literacy

  • Game understanding based sessions

  • Classroom based game analysis/understanding

  • Post and pregame video analysis

  • Individual development and progression

  • Team development

  • Non-results based development

  • Results based competitive fixtures

  • Game development and management

  • Authentic situations and emotions

  • Character development

  • Winning and losing intensity

  • Real time monitoring of performance, progression fatigue and emotion

Learning and Performing with Technology

Technology does not stop at our academics. We are also at the forefront of technology with our soccer program.

 

Video monitoring, GPS utilization, and Apollo technology allow real-time feedback to ensure our training goals are met and “deliberate practice” is being met at each and every session.
