HomeAbout usCurriculum

In order to be an Elite Academy, there must be a diligent plan for delivering on expectations.
Players learn the game differently, depending on age. Our curriculum is carefully crafted to support these various stages. These include motor skills, technique, footwork, individual, group and team tactics.
Our Academy will be implementing a very specific technical program, designed to create ball mastery skills for any player during a match. This is accomplished during training by performing activities that are challenging, maximize ball contact and repetition.
Our Academy coaching staff will develop players using three principles: Develop passion and love for the game; create skillful, efficient thinkers of the game (soccer IQ); focus on functional, highly repetitive ball mastery exercises.
Our program for competitive will run from u8 to u18. As players move through the age groups at NextGen, it is important to their overall growth to hear the same terminology. That is why we have developed a language protocol, so the terms are the same no matter how old the player is.
SPARQ stands for Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction and Quickness. All vital to being an elite soccer player. Every session and match will include these activities, boosting a player's skill levels. Every exercise is functional to the sport's demands.
Our Academy will have a nutritionist on staff, there to implement best practices, make recommendations on do's and dont's that are age specific and gender specific. The Nutritionist is certified and will bring tremendous value.
NextGen has partnered with Save our Y of Sarasota to deliver on an important asset to each player's overall development. Every athlete will have a Save our Y membership and each team will integrate swimming, futsal, spinning, weight training and more into their season plan.
We believe at the elite level, every player should have the mindset to play in college. Our Academy has a very tailored program that begins in 9th grade. Each family will have a customized experience, which includes a club endorsement.

  • Playing to Learn
  • Learning to Compete
  • Competing to Win

During this stage of Development at Next Generation Soccer Academy, our athletes are learning the foundations of becoming an elite soccer player, all while enjoying the moments. We are focusing on their technique when passing, trapping and dribbling, developing strength in their core and footwork and pushing the boundaries of their grit.

Our Pre-Academy athletes have become accustom to the NextGen ways of training and competing. Elements of excitement are drawn for the tireless efforts the players give towards getting it right. That commitment fuels them as they strive deliver on the Academy’s expectations.

Competing to Win is not only an outcome, it is a harden mindset that lives deep within our Academy players. They have given so much of their time and energy to become the best, competing with incredible grit and fire. They are passionate, hard-working, make no excuses and have developed an unrivaled soccer IQ.
