Long Island Junior Soccer League

LIJSL Academy

The LIJSL Academy has formed after a restructuring and rebranding of the Player Development Program. The Academy is for both boys and girls and the focus is on elite-level training and competing for a National Championship. The program is supplemental to what players are doing at their clubs, while the LIJSL Academy environment aims to introduce the players in the program to a higher level of training and competition to further their development in the game.

The players will develop under the Academy coaching methodology, which is designed to bring their game to a higher level and help them perform well in their weekly games and showcase tournaments.

The Academy structure begins with the Pre-Academy for players aged U9-U10. The Pre-Academy will be used to filter players into the Academy teams, which will be fielded from ages U11-U19.
