What is LeftFoot Coaching Academy (LFC)?
LeftFoot Coaching Academy is a soccer specific, player oriented training center founded in 2010 to serve the needs of individual soccer players. The Academy serves over 265 passionate soccer players through daily training sessions, workshops, and seasonal intensives. We serve every level of player and are renown for helping players reach every level of play.
Our specialty is taking players from their current level of play and advancing them to the NEXT Level. Academy players represent every advanced level of play in the state and nation: MYSA, Premier, CI, C2, C3, MRL, Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), ODP, US Development Academy, Division I collegiate soccer, Division II & III collegiate soccer as well as recreational. Over 15 local community clubs have players that specifically develop their technical skills at LeftFoot Coaching Academy. In 2012 the teams that won the U14 and U15 MYSA State Championships and went Premier had 5 “Lefties” each. The U16′s State Runner-Ups had 3!
Certain players wanted more training, more nights and better quality coaching. They wanted a long term relationship with one coach that wasn’t based on winning, playing time or tryouts. So in 2010, 24 families and one coach created an annual program that is both flexible, affordable and, if you want, a daily opportunity to become a great player. In just under three years, we’ve grown to over 265 players because we’re doing the little things better than everyone else.
LeftFoot Coaching Academy is located at 6022 Pillsbury Ave in south Minneapolis just off of Crosstown (Highway 62) and 35W. We have our our 10,000 sq ft facility devoted entirely to training soccer players. We don’t run leagues, run tournaments or rent to clubs. Therefore every hour, every day, every session is completely devoted to players.
Pick a Night. Pick a Day. Come Everyday if you wish.
We are every night! We are open every day, excluding holidays and some seasonal vacations for our coaches and administrators. Sessions start at 5:15 daily and are 75 minutes in length. We are open year-round. There’s not one night for you to train and have access. Players can come any day, any week and twice on Sunday’s if they want! (We don’t recommend it, but it’s possible!)
Players 11 and older can have access to schedule in any one of 28 sessions weekly. The biggest issue, is not that we’re not open, it’s can you get here!?
Just for Players.
LeftFoot Coaching Academy is for the player and family that wants maximum FLEXIBILITY in scheduling, maximum OPPORTUNITY to get better by training with better players and wants to take advantage of having maximum ACCESS to sessions, coaching and players.
Our philosophy orients towards players that want to get better and therefore do not have to rely on their teams, coaches or clubs to provide them “training.” If you have sought out a community of dedicated players to create ONE “soccer home” then you found us!
Monthly Tuition Plan
The costs of creating a flexible, sustainable, dedicated environment where you could have the opportunity to have a private session or be with sixteen phenomenal players from around the state can only be sustained with a monthly tuition within an annual commitment. We deliver extra-ordinary value through the summer and winter with maximum scheduling access, great coaching and most importantly– results!
How Do I Join?
We are NOT a training program that you just pay to get in… but a coaching program that helps players and families get the best results they can for their children. Because of this we screen for the best fit of both coaching relationships, child determination, family involvement and flexibility through a One Month Trial Application. We choose who we want to work with to help get the best results possible and we want to enjoy the relationship too!
