Knox Crush Soccer Academy Ages 3-8 Years

WHAT WE DO

Our Academy League coaches teach children the preliminaries of competitive soccer, sportsmanship, and team play. We offer children the experience of playing on a team, while focusing on player development and fun. All our practices and games lay the foundation for competitive soccer in a relaxed atmosphere. To make sure our players stay fit and active year-round, we provide indoor sessions during the harsh winter. During the spring and fall, we take advantage of our outdoor fields. 

NEWLY REVISED CURRICULUM

Coach John Giles has 16 years coaching experience for ages 3-12 at all skill levels.  Together with Coach Casey Shanklin and Coach Haylie Smith, he has developed a comprehensive curriculum designed to move our Academy players from their starting point to the next level of profiency in soccer skills and game awareness.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We strive to instill a love of soccer.  We will instruct your player on the fundamental skills necessary to develop as an athlete, teammate, and a soccer player.  We want to see your child outgrow our program and move onto more challenging teams.  We prepare your player for their next steps in soccer or other athletic endeavors.
