About Advantage

Welcome new and returning athletes and families...  we are excited  to be a part of your road to gaining the ADVANTAGE.

Advantage Soccer Academy - What We Believe 

The Advantage Soccer Academy was founded in 2003 by Janet Albert.
Advantage is designed to move players forward in a systematic and creative way.  Advantage is not a club, but an Academy where players can receive quality training to advance their own technical abilities which can then be used to take the game to new levels!

In order to become great soccer players, there are a number of basic skills that should be repeated over and over in order to master the ball (levels 1-3). Ball mastery then allows the players to be free and creative. Our progression with this academy is to train the athletes in 3 concepts introduced in levels 4 & 5 which include:

1.    Fluency of Idea:  the ability to generate a large number of ideas for one problem

2.    Flexibility:  the ability to adjust to the situation effectively-playing simply or creating an original way out

3.    Originality:  expressing oneself to come up with novel solutions to common problems

Training players in ball mastery allows them to be more creative in the decision making process as they advance as soccer players. From the very young players to the elite Player, Advantage Soccer Academy will enhance athlete's performance, motivation, and the desire to reach the highest level possible.

"Sports are most rewarding when the judge of skill and the definer of challenge is the individual athlete. That is when the athlete receives two rewards: the joy of participating and the satisfaction of learning to know oneself." Ewing & Seefeldt (1990, p. 6)
