LVU Juniors Academy

LVU Juniors Academy Philosophy

The Lehigh Valley United Juniors Academy program is dedicated to overall development of the player in a professionally run atmosphere. We recognize that the Juniors Level is the first and most important stage in structuring player development and offer Professional Coaching at each age group. In this program all players are accepted and no player is turned away based on age or ability base. The coaching staff will be focused on nurturing technical sophistication on the ball, motor skills, and early development of soccer awareness. It instills the love and passion for the sport through the methods of guided discovery. 

We stress the importance of leadership, attitude, professionalism, team unity, work rate, and sportsmanship as some of the core values that will be introduced throughout the player’s career at LVU.  

Evaluation Process

All players interested in participating in LVU Junior's Academy will need to attend an evaluation for placement purposes. We will have an evaluation day, leading into the new season, for all current and interested players for placement purposes. Age group teams are constantly forming throughout the year and anyone can attend an LVU Junior’s Academy training session at any time, regardless of time of year and soccer club/soccer association affiliation.

Coaching Staff

The LVU Juniors Coaching Staff consists of experienced soccer players and coaches, many of whom are professionally liscenced. As a result, the cost of the Juniors Academy program is significantly higher than that of local rec programs, who host a variety of parent volunteers. Our staff coaches are all paid for their time coaching each season.
