Lou Fusz Athletic

Rookies Program

Introducing the game • U6-U13

Formerly known as Lou Fusz Athletic's seasonal Indoor / Outdoor Program, join our revamped Rookies Program for seasonal soccer sessions. You will get 1x-week soccer practices with optional Saturday morning games. During the practices, players will learn individual ball-handling skills (dribbling, passing, shooting and more) in a fun atmosphere that focuses on the proper soccer techniques! We have an excellent coaching staff and aim to maintain a player to coach ratio of 10:1.
