A Soccer Home

For Your Player

It is inevitable for every player and parent for their enthusiasm from the previous season ebb into the reality of the team orientation of Minnesota youth soccer. Our Minneapolis soccer training facility is a no-club environment where each practice is judgement-free and a completely enjoyable time for your kid.

II - First Touch - For New Members

When you first come to us it can be overwhelming to see all of our options. This section, and number (II – First Touch) is for new, prospective students or members. You don’t have to be a member to workout with us, but we don’t give you an all access pass.

Start at LeftFoot!

With over 100 students of all ages we try to make sure we meet you where you are during the season you need support. 

Seasons change at LeftFoot. Enrolling in private coaching in the Fall is a lot different than in the Spring. Start with one course and finish with another. We open certain opportunities each year to get the “experience” of LeftFoot. We call them Front End Opportunities!

II. First Touch - 30. Orientation

Brief online orientation covering our founding, why we do what we do, who we work with and how we do what we do. Enroll in an online webinar to meet Christian and learn about the LeftFoot mission and philosophy of coaching.

II. First Touch - 40. Academy Trial Application

The first step for making sure we make your player better when we meet you. How do we start, what does your player do and what can we learn from you to help us be better coaches for your player? Experience our flexible scheduling first hand and get involved with our Coaching Design so that we can prepare your player for success. Required for Membership.

II. First Touch - 44. Coaching Design

What’s best for your player? What should you do if you’re in basketball, track and have three kids to drive around? Coaching Design is our best recommendations to get the most bang for your buck. Receive coaching design recommendations through interviews or phone calls with your House Leader or House Coach once we SEE your player or they are an Academy Student. Included in Membership and Trial Applications. 

III. Core Programs - 32. Accelerators

A great way to get introduced to the core principles of our coaching: FootSkills, BallStriking and the Academy Progressions. Plus our favorite: Finishing Progressions! Prospective students are welcome to join us during the summer to participate in an Accelerator. Summer Only.

II. First Touch Opportunities

Get started at LeftFoot. Choose from Academy Applications Fall through Spring.

Coaching Based on Evaluation, Assessments and Interviews.

We want to give you the best programming that we can deliver. What's right for that person isn't right for your player. We don't design based on age, we coach a player where they are at and where they want to go.

 

III. Core Programs - For Members Only

If you want to know why you should be a Member, check out this column. (III. Core Programs)

Members Only

Members Only Programming.

Our Core Programs start players with a core minimum of sessions to attend and orient to the Academy. We’ve found a minimum participation of 30 sessions a year will be of initial benefit to most players. How we get to those 30 sessions can vary based on age, gender, level of play, and goals of the family/player. 

III. Core Programs - 10. Membership

Our Membership does everything a coach should do. Design solutions, provide opportunities for growth, guide students and parents through tryouts, high school and college preparation. Membership starts our partnership with you to help your player reach their goals. Required for participation. 

III. Core Programs - 16. Weekend Premium Plans

When you coach for over 25 years and operate for over 10 years, you know certain things work right. Our monthly premium plan connects our One to One Coaching with our Weekend Practices so that players have a consistent and predictable coaching program.  Required for Membership. 

III. Core Programs - 28. Weekend Practice

It took us some time to figure out what works on the weekends. I mean everyone wants to work with us for BallStriking, FootSkills, and our coaches! So we figured Weekends are for everyone to attend everything! The Weekend Practice Pass is a super discounted pass so that players can attend back to back sessions and really get the most out of every visit. Membership Plan Required.

III. Core Programs - 20. Student Tuition Plans

What’s the difference between Students and Members? The Tuition Plan. Players get better when they visit the Academy more than 35 times a year. Over eight years we’ve designed a model to let your player attend 40 times a year and still make it easy for you to pay, schedule and not lose sessions on a “monthly” subscription. Required for Academy Coaching Weekday Sessions.

III. Core Programs - 48. One to One Coaching

Not everyone NEEDS One to One Coaching, but everyone benefits from One to One Coaching. Our Weekend Premium Plan bundles one half hour a month for the “basics” but once you fall in love with our coaches, you’ll want more. No packages, just single sessions to order. Membership Plan Required to Purchase.

IV. Premium Programs - For Students Only

When you’re as good as we make you, the basic programs aren’t good enough any longer. Our specialty programs are for students of the Academy. Minimum one year of previous participation. 

Student Programs

Summer provides more opportunities for players and families

Seasons change at LeftFoot. Our summer programs allow us to design from 7am – 6pm Monday through Thursday and we include weekend programming as well. We also have more coaches, more time slots open. 

IV. Premium Programs - 30. The LeftFoot Privado™

A Privado is a concept we created that crafts the player into a ball of clay, modeled through the artistry of the coach designing the perfect player. Once a week minimum for two terms. Invite Only. 

IV. Premium Programs - 60. MasterMind Coaching

The best of the best, or the most committed to learning between the ears. It’s not always the feet that solve the problems in the game. It’s the confidence to learn what’s come before you and study failure to earn success. MasterMind is a drop in office hours program designed for players to play, learn, study and have “open office hours” to ask within an annual curriculum similar to ODP or an honors elective. Subscription Only. Minimum One Year of Previous Participation. 

IX. Licensing - 20. Senior Practicum
