The United Soccer Academy philosophy is to inspire players of all ages and ability levels through our extensive, targeted curricula.  As Soccer Education Specialists, we pride ourselves in offering individual player development in a structured, enjoyable and safe learning environment.

The following soccer session plans are easy to follow and FREE to download. We encourage you to share them as long as full credit is given to United Soccer Academy.  Session Plans may not be reproduced without expressed written consent.

Every session includes a warm up, a fundamental and individual skill, a game related group game, finishing with an unconditional game (scrimmage). We believe that through our Thresholds of Training, our sessions are second to none and have proven results.
