The program includes a complete series of specific skill improvement programs designed through drills to reinforce each new skill.
In addition to the year round program, the Academy offers a series of summer soccer camp for boys and girls ages 8-16. The camps run all summer long and are one week in duration. All aspects of the game are covered in a comprehensive program, that combines skill improvement and fun. Teams are encouraged to attend as a group to provide tactical instruction for the entire team.
The fees that are charged are designed to make these programs available to everyone, thanks to the help of our sponsors. The number of hours per program, along with the low player-to-coach ratio, make these programs very cost effective at less than $10 per hour session. Our Academy program is designed for the budding soccer star while our elite program is geared for the elite athlete and is by invitation only.

Coaching Education is a vital component of the WSA Academy. Just as a parent should not entrust the education, health or care of their child to an unqualified teacher, doctor or caregiver, we do not expect parents serious about their children's athletic development to leave it to coaches without the proper formal training. While there are many good quality people without licenses that are doing commendable work as coaches, the fact that WSA requires its coaches to be licensed at the highest level will tell you a couple of very important things about the person training your child.
Firstly, that this person is committed to becoming a better coach. Just as players must train to perform well in games, coaches must be trained in order to properly pass along their knowledge to the young players. Secondly, they are not people that think they know everything and they are willing to expose themselves to different styles and philosophies in order to find what works best for them.
As well as requiring minimum licensing requirements for running teams, the WSA also encourages all of their coaches to continue to develop throughout their coaching careers and to have reached a minimum of their Canadian-B license. There is always more to learn and there are endless sources of information available around the world. As part of this continuing education focus, WSA coaches also have European Experience of the Highest level
