Lobitos Mini academy pac
"At the early ages of 4 to 9 years old, our goal is to foster a love of soccer while also laying the foundation for technical foot skills, spatial awareness, off-the-ball movement, and decision-making. By providing a fun and engaging environment, our young athletes will develop a strong foundation for their future soccer careers while enjoying the game."
We focus on these four main attributes of the game. We believe that athletes will improve more effectively with a holistic approach. Athletes, even at a young age, are capable of recognizing these crucial fundamentals of the game. With the right environment, the small games we design with adjustments can be the best teacher. Our coaches will provide the ideal environment to nurture these vital elements of the game.
Form the foundation of all soccer actions such as dribbling, shooting, passing, and receiving the ball. Good foot skills allow a player to control the ball with confidence, execute various moves and maneuvers to beat opponents, and make quick and effective decisions on the field. This enhances the player’s overall performance and ability to contribute to the team’s success. Thus, having strong technical foot skills is crucial for a player’s development and success in soccer.
Developing spatial awareness at an early age in soccer is important because it allows players to understand their surroundings on the field and make better decisions. Spatial awareness is the ability to perceive and understand the location of objects and players in relation to oneself and to the overall game situation. With good spatial awareness, young players can better anticipate where the ball is going, where their teammates and opponents are positioned, and where they should move to be effective.
Off-the-ball movement in soccer is essential for young players to learn as it enables them to support their teammates and contribute to the team’s success. It involves movements made by a player when they do not have the ball. Good off-the-ball movement creates space, opens up passing lanes, and creates scoring opportunities. Incorporating this into training helps young players understand the game, make effective decisions, and contribute to the team’s success. Developing these skills early on lays the foundation for advanced tactical understanding and decision-making as players progress in their careers. In short, off-the-ball movement is a critical component of effective team play and individual success in soccer.
Fostering decision-making skills in young soccer players through drills is crucial for their development and success on the field. Good decision-making is a key component of success in soccer as players need to assess game situations quickly and make informed decisions. Drills that foster decision making encourage creativity, develop game awareness, improve reaction time, and build confidence. By incorporating these drills in their training, young players can develop the skills and confidence to make effective decisions and contribute to their team’s success.

X League 7 - 12 years old
at 7 years old kids will start playing organized games in the district, usually played inside the same county. At age 11 the system will start dividing groups based on level of play, usually the best 3 of each region into higher level brackets.
State Competition D5 - Premier
If players started in the system at an early age ( 7-10) under a good program like PAC, they will earn a spot in the higher division in the state, this means they could be Premier or D1 starting at U13. From there the goal is to maintain the competition in the highest Divisions years to come. Starting at this age Teams may be traveling more ( optional ) to out state for leagues and tournaments.
Elite team U13 - U15 - U17
Our club will be offering an Elite program for players that are serious about their development based also on their talent and understanding of the game. From ages 13-19 we will create 3 Elite teams, U13, U15 and U17. This could be a combination of different age groups, pulling players to play up as the club directors and coaches feel suitable.
National Adult Semi-Pro League
We are one of the few organizations in the state that has a program all the way to young adulthood. We genuinely care and believe in our community and we feel is important to provide for opportunities to players this age after they graduated from high school. Players will still develop to keep opportunities open for colleges and pro options.
