Goal Keeper Training

Premier Academy offers small group goalie sessions coached by our professional goalie trainer twice per week. The modern day goalkeeper is very much an outfield player. Premier Academy incorporates our goalkeepers in the team training sessions to ensure they develop the skills required to play the position effectively in today’s game. 

Tryouts

Premier Academy conducts open tryouts. Any player can request an individual tryout at any point in the program year at no cost. The player will be invited to train with the Team for up to 2 weeks before a determination is made on whether the player is a good fit for the program.

To request a tryout, please fill out the contact us template.

Global Training Oppurtunity

Premier’s staff have experience playing local and abroad and know that many player’s dreams are to train with professional clubs in South America or Europe. At Premier we are establishing a network of connections to provide players with the opportunity to train for 30 days during a specific time of the year. The purpose is for them to continue their soccer learning & development, prepare for University or a professional trial, or even to gain some additional life experience. This opportunity is designed for a specific player with professional motivation and drive to reach his/her full potential. 

Player Management

An aspect of a professional youth development program is management. A significant area where parents completely miss the value of proper professional guidance for the player’s youth career, mentality, and physical and mental approach to their training and games. At Premier we guide the player through their youth career by working with them on and off the field. This includes: nutrition & hydration, rest and recovery, school grades, sleep habits, field position, their specific role on the team, leadership skills, and isolation skills and exercises to do on their own. However, since Premiere is an Academy and want all our athletes to reach their full potential, our staff navigate them using written projects & assignments. This means: short and long goal settings every year while using the S.M.A.R.T. technique, and player assessment reviews. Premier athletes conduct homework projects on professional clubs, University applications, and the difference between all the Collegiate options: NAIA, NCAA, Canadian USport & Junior Colleges or CCAA

Primary Trainer: Shawn Agnew
Team Manager: 

The Premier Academy U-23 ten month program (August to May) is comprised of motivated,  focused and dedicated players who want to continue their development once graduating high school and are seeking a serious and professional environment. This unique opportunity is hyper focused on the “gap” year athlete who is wanting to prepare for University varsity trials or prep for a trial over-seas. The team will compete in a local Men’s league but within the context of a U-23 Team. Our goal is to have a select few “over-age” players to help lead, assist and captain the squad. These players are aspected to add depth, maturity and leadership. The team will train x2 outdoors per week and once indoors per week starting in August 2021. The indoor session will be hyper focused on futsal training. The majority of the games are filmed with a Sports VEO 4k Camera that sits at 12ft high. This component provides video analysis for additional learning opportunities and players can also edit highlights in order to create their highlight reels for University recruiting portfolios. Other program highlights: Conditioning sessions, resistance training modules and assessments, team building sessions, exhibition games, team awards, travel, fitness and technical assessments, job opportunities, free socials,  and university placement guidance. This program is heavily subsidized and provided at a fraction of the cost!  However, it is for serious players who are wanting to truly reach their full potential.
