This is an eight week program on Friday evenings in January and February for players to come scrimmage in a pick-up style game and continue to work on skills with our professional trainers. It is
run by the International Academy of Soccer and is open to all players that played in the fall season.
- This program is designed to provide soccer training and skill development beyond the Recreational program. It is open to highly motivated and committed players who qualified for Mercer Island U10
& older in last fall season. It runs from April to mid May and is led by professionals from the International Academy of Soccer. While it is not a "select" program, it is expected that each
player will be serious and committed to developing his/her skills. Disruptive or non-interested players will be asked to sit out so as not to detract from the experience of the more dedicated
participants. Players are expected to be on time and ready to start at each session wearing proper soccer attire, including shin guards, and bring their own ball. This program is designed as a drop
in program for players to come to as many training sessions as they can as it fits into their spring schedule.
