7U Pre-Academy

About 7U Pre-Academy

The 7U Pre-Academy is designed to provide the highest quality development program for the area’s most motivated and committed 7U soccer players. The program offers several unique benefits:

  • A developmentally-appropriate curriculum created and taught by licensed, professional coaches;
  • Once-per-week outdoor training in the Fall and Spring seasons, to supplement your child’s team training;
  • Reasonable cost to participate.
  • Exclusive to players that are Loudoun Soccer 7U age group. Players must be born in the year 2013 and register in the Kindergarten or 1st Grade programs.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: August 21, 2019 at 8 PM.

FEE: $125 
(Your player must be registered for our regular Kindergarten Minis or 1st Grade Recreation program in order to participate in the 7U Pre-Academy. There is no cost to try out. Families are responsible for paying the fee upon selection for the Pre-Academy.)


The curriculum — designed by Dan Raben, Director of Player Development – features a heavy emphasis on individual ball mastery, allowing each player to become more comfortable, confident and creative with their foot skills, while nurturing their passion and enjoyment for soccer. Activities and games will follow the best practices of US Soccer and US Youth Soccer.

Each week of training will feature a theme, which will build off the themes from previous weeks, including:

  • Dribbling for possession (changes of direction, shielding)
  • Dribbling for penetration (attacking moves such as scissors, Matthews, step-overs, etc.)
  • First touch
  • Passing
  • Finishing and ball-striking
