Recreation Technical Training Academy – Spring 2014
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 u19, and is designed to teach and refine each player’s technical ability, while also teaching its tactical application within the game.
We are pleased to announce an expansion of this program for Spring 2014, and will now offer a location in South Riding, in addition to our location in Leesburg!
Training sessions are organized by age group, and all sessions are led by professional youth soccer coaches. Players are expected to arrive 15 minutes before each session.
Cost per player: $95 for seven training sessions. Families will register their child for either Leesburg or South Riding - players are only permitted to attend one location's session. Space is limited, so families are encouraged to register their child as soon as possible.
