. Why train with the Adirondack Lynx Soccer Academy?
Over the last four years some of the best players in the world have come to upstate New York to train with the Adirondack Lynx! Many international players as well as US youth national team players and college All-Americans have chosen to play with the Adirondack Lynx Women’s Team.
The Adirondack Lynx Soccer Academy seeks to improve individual player development, satisfaction, retention, and to build a less pressured youth environment.
We believe SUCCESS is a by-product of player development! With the Lynx Academy approach, the focus is on improving an individual player’s technique. Young players are encouraged to show their abilities in an environment of competition without the “fear” of losing. Since players will be in an environment where they don’t constantly worry about the decision-making process during the match, the players begin to develop a “feel” for the game, and start to play instinctively. The Adirondack Lynx “player-centered” approach gives the children the opportunity to…
1.Touch the soccer ball more often and become more skillful with it. (Individual technical development);
2.Make more, less-complicated decisions during the game. (Tactical development);
3.Be more physically efficient in the field space they are playing in. (Reduced field size);
4.Get more individual teaching time with the coach. Less players on the field and less players on the team will guarantee this. (Need to feel worthy and need to feel important);
5.Have more, involved playing time in the game. (More opportunity to solve problems that only the game presents);
6.Have more opportunity to play on both sides of the ball. (More exposure to attacking and defending situations.);
7.To have more opportunities to score goals. (Pure excitement);
The “Player-Centered” environment is a developmentally appropriate and FUN environment for our young soccer players.
