REACH YOUR NEXT LEVEL
EPIC Development Academy Program - image of kids running with soccer balls

The EPIC Academy program is intended to serve players of all levels whether it is a player’s first introduction to soccer or they are coming from another club program. Our goal in the academy is simple: to develop each player's soccer skills while also building character and having fun. Our vision is that players not only learn the appropriate skills needed to succeed in soccer, but more importantly they learn skills that are necessary to be successful in life such as communication, collaboration, motivation, and positive attitude.

Why join EPIC Academy?

All EPIC Academy practice sessions are game-based to provide the best possible learning environment for the players. The games-based approach to teaching soccer is very popular with European teams. Here are some reasons why we use game-based learning at EPIC:

  • More engaging for kids
  • Less standing in lines = more movement
  • Realistic to actual soccer game situations
  • Develops kids' personal strengths while building individuality
  • Builds confidence, passion, and motivation towards the game
  • More FUN
