LIJSL Academy

The LIJSL Academy age groups will continue to train using the academy methodology that is introduced in Pre-Academy except, the tactical and physical aspect of the game will become a bigger part of their training. The style of play will remain the same as their experience in Pre-Academy, but now they will play weekly games while competing to play in a National Championship. The performance of the players and team will always be primary, as results will be a product of the performance.
