Recreation Technical Training Academy – Spring 2013
Loudoun Soccer is pleased to announce the return of its popular Recreation Technical Training Academy (RTTA). RTTA is a supplemental program for recreation players ages u9 to u17, and is designed to teach and refine each player’s technical ability, while also teaching its tactical application within the game.
Training sessions are organized by age group, and all sessions are lead by professional youth soccer coaches. All seven sessions are held at Loudoun Soccer Park. Players are expected to arrive 15 minutes before each session.
Cost per player: $95 for seven training sessions. Space is limited, so families are encouraged to register their child as soon as possible.
