Lou Fusz Athletic is excited to announce Tim Lanfersieck as our Director of Star Program. Tim has spent 10 years working with these age groups, starting in 2009 in the LFA camps and clinics program under Marty Pike. Since then, Tim has continued to grow within the club by taking on the roles of Blue Star Academy Assistant Director and Director of the LFA Winter League. He has spent the last year working alongside the club\'s TD David Critchley to understand the importance and differentiation placed on this program. In addition to his experience at LFA, Tim holds a USSF National D License. We are looking forward to Tim further developing the club.
The Star Program exists to identify players that are ready for the challenge of an increased emphasis on technical training and a competitive atmosphere. The curriculum is based around a technical focused training program within Lou Fusz Athletic. The academy starts for boys and girls age U6-U8. The staff is completed by coaches with former professional and collegiate playing experience. This program is the first step for a young athlete at LFA in the development pathway. The focus is placed firmly upon skill development and instilling proper techniques within our athletes, while progressing into game play. Players will build a strong foundation to grow from as they learn the core necessities of the game. The Star Program runs seasonally, with the next step being teams shaped at the U9 age group with a year commitment from player and club and an introduction to LFA Blue / Red / White Star teams.
