How do kids get better at soccer? By playing every day and getting lots and lots of touches. What I love about Manuel’s academy is that it’s always open for business and if you want, you can go every single day. Both my boys started training with Manuel when they were four years old and are now playing at the club level, while continuing to hone their skills through the academy. There is always a scrimmage or pick up game going on at Manuel’s field, and this is the perfect environment to develop their creative instincts, building confidence in a casual, pressure free environment that is always fun, and the skill level is high.
