Scheduling coaching sessions in the Academy on a daily basis is part of our values of creating ACCESS to great coaching, the chance to strike a ball or play with better players.
Confidence is built through hours of struggle honing techniques that separate the best players from the rest. The "magic" of LeftFoot is players work on their personal goals first.
Using our custom iPhone/iPad app, families and players can book, reschedule and browse through coaching sessions anytime they want!

Join Our Academy
Starting your Academy Trial Application is the first step in the process of joining LeftFoot. Students and families go through a five step journey to start the coaching relationship here. Afterwards, we invite select players to continue to learn and develop at LeftFoot.
Ultimate Trial Experience
One on One coaching is the heart of our Academy and a great way to introduce your child to LeftFoot. As a second option to enter the Academy, the Ultimate Trial Experience offers three Academy sessions, two One on One Coaching sessions, and one Semi-Private Coaching session.
LeftFoot is an idea. It's a vision that coaching is passionate, engaged, honest, and demanding. It's not training. It doesn't include club politics, team squabbles, or the pursuit of championships and status. It's a Coaching Academy. A Soccer Home for great players and great coaches to come together.
Elizabeth Smith Parent of Caroline Smith
I have not had the opportunity to thank you personally, but I accredit most of Caroline's improvement to you and your academy. When we first started with LeftFoot Caroline was on team three at her club. She recently made [the top team at C1]. Thank you for an outstanding soccer curriculum and for the one on one coaching you have provided!
Mike and Linda Roux Parents of Jenna & Jessie Roux
We have been incredibly blessed getting to know you and being a part of LeftFoot Coaching Academy. Both of our girls have grown so much on and off the field and I credit YOU with a ton of the advancement, skill development, mental toughness and confidence that Jenna and Jessie have both experienced over the past three years. For that we are forever grateful!! THANK YOU!!!!!
Craig & Carin Morris Parents of Mackenzie & Macy
"We just wanted to reach out to you and say thank you. Thank you for helping both Mackenzie and Macy succeed. Please accept our many thanks to you and your coaching staff. Our kids are not the same soccer players that walked through your academy’s doors a few short months ago."
Kelly Brakin Mom of Riley
"We are back from JFG with Riley's C2 team. I will get right to why I am writing you...For the past two years Riley, was the goal keeper that would have another girl kick the bigger goal kicks because her kicks were so bad.... This weekend she kicked all the corner kicks... her kicks were that great! Can you believe this kid??? I am shocked! She played center mid/ forward all weekend all the time...this is a big HIGH FIVE on your process....Its working on Riley!"
Paul Wilson Father of Nick Wilson
"I can say with certainty that LeftFoot has significantly improved Nick's game...Nick has grown mentally, physically, and technically, perhaps more importantly I've witnessed importantly life lessons like 'showing up' , having a plan, a goal, etc. that will serve him for years to come. In such a short time you've had an everlasting impact on our son. I am grateful to you and your staff for your efforts."
Marlene Mohs Parent of Courtney Mohs
It has been a while since I have been present for an entire LeftFoot session for Courtney. As I watched off and on last night, I was really impressed with Carlos and his interaction with the kids. I have seen Carlos off and on - and I can see he is developing quickly as a great coach - especially for these young kids. And - recognizing that what I think isn't really the gold standard - I mentioned Carlos this morning and Courtney said, "I really like him"! Which is high praise from a kid:) Just felt compelled to say something because I kept thinking about what a great job you’re doing coaching kids and developing coaches.
Omid Souresrafil Parent of Ehson
You came recommended to me by a successful and winning club coach and we signed up my son Ehson after a successful tryout. I wanted to thank you and your staff for working with Ehson in the past couple of months. He has improved so much and qualified for the top team at a new club. We will surely do our best to refer as many people as we can! He loves LeftFoot!

Why We Are Different
On Your Side
We recognize that players develop within a family unit and that parents need as much coaching and guidance as players through the journey of youth soccer. Consulting families on decisions that make a difference in their lives is a key part of the success of LeftFoot students. We have no affiliation or preference of clubs and are strictly club neutral.
Skills Based Progressions
The Academy Series is our group methodology of training individual skills within a curriculum designed for soccer players. Our three primary Series progressions advance players through a 52 week course emphasizing skill introductions, competition and mastery of the skill within game situations.
