The Penns Forest Academy curriculum is researched-based and has been
proven successful on the field!

The Academy is where our teams are created.
 

Boys and Girls U6 - U10 

Our patient, long term approach to developing players begins at the grass roots level and continues through the highest levels of play at our club.  The player development philosophy of the Penns Forest Football Club has three primary goals:  

  • To create a soccer environment that is both age and ability appropriate for each of our players. 
  • To develop technically competent soccer players who are able to accurately collect and pass the ball, be effective attackers and defenders in 1 v 1 situations, and to be critical, independent thinkers on the field.
  • We believe that every player is capable of improving his or her overall soccer performance.  We are committed to providing the instruction and support to give our players the best opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of age or level.
     

 

Teaching to all levels within our club
 

Within our organization, there are core values and objectives that our coaches will hold to at all ages and ability levels.   Our challenge is to apply these core values and objectives in a meaningful and relevant manner with respect to the needs of each particular team and player.
 
Our goal is to provide an environment where learning is fun, and where learning is expected of everyone. Indeed, more learning creates more fun!  All of our players are capable of growing as soccer players.   We are committed to providing the instruction and support to give our players the best opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of age or level.
 
All of our players deserve the opportunity to improve their overall soccer performance, in a manner that is relevant to their potential.  This includes increasing their technical skill sets and their understanding of basic tactical relationships, (1v1 to 4v4), and improving their fitness level and their willingness to compete.  By doing so, we accomplish several goals: 
 
  • We help them acquire skills that they can use to further impact the game.
  • The more skills they learn and the more they comfortably use those skills, the more enjoyable the game becomes.  
  • The more enjoyable the game becomes, the more they engage in the learning process and the more competent they become, and so on.

As a club, we will always look to teach to our players’ potential and to teach in a manner that exposes them to the fundamental skill sets needed to enjoy the game.  Our charge and responsibility as a club is to find the proper level of expectations for all of our players, from U6 Academy to U20 Men and Women, and then to provide an environment that is both fun and challenging at the same time.
