Mini Academy

KSA is introducing some new programs for boys and girls aged from 4-9 years of age.

The  “Mini Academy” will be designed for players who are experimenting with soccer but have not yet committed to playing in a club environment. They still maybe playing other sports or have other interests but want to come out and learn some soccer skills and participate in some games. The “Mini Academy” will run on twice a week with skill sessions during the week.

Players will be taught the fundamentals of the KSA philosophy of “staying with the ball” dribbling, twisting and turning, learning to strike the ball in all situations and interacting with others. During training these skills will be reinforced in learning environment.

Sessions are NEVER cancelled due to the excellent facilities at the home of Knoxville Soccer Academy the Johnny Long Training Academy in Hardin Valley. Its a ten week program that will begin the week of August 19th and end the week of October 23rd. Sessions will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-6 pm. Players will need soccer shoes, shin guards, proper training gear and water. We will provide all the balls.

There are still places available for the fall sessions and anyone interested should contact KSA on or 865-309-6676

Message from KSA Executive Coaching Director, Derek Broadley

The signals for continual child development cannot be measured in wins and losses in youth sports, however it is amazing how many soccer parents see this as the only measurement when it comes to selecting clubs/teams for their children.
