About WNY FLASH ACADEMY
ABOUT THE WNY FLASH ACADEMY
The Western New York Flash Academy is a professional, recognized and accomplished player development program that works with committed players who are in pursuit of being the best they can be. The Flash Academy is the next level training path that guides players and teams into the highest levels of soccer in the United States. The Flash Academy Staff possesses a wealth of playing and coaching experience, elevating players to the highest level on a individual- and team-orientated focus. Our coaches are dedicated to championship-caliber youth development with players benefiting from their vast experience, qualification and devotion to improving players on and off the field.
The WNY Flash Academy follows a US Soccer based elite player development curriculum that enables the Flash coaching staff to precisely implement and monitor player development at each age group. Players and Teams will be individually evaluated and placed on a weekly, monthly, and season-to-season plan to maximize development. The Flash Academy offers players the opportunity to learn and grow in a highly motivated environment through the vision of the club: “Learning to play the F...lash way”.
Starting with the U.S. Soccer elite player development curriculum and the four dimensions of the game (Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychological) as a basis for the training philosophy, we have added to it in order to create a methodology that is uniquely Flash. When implemented with an attention to detail in the FUN environment created by committed players and coaches, this methodology becomes the culture in which the WNY Flash Academy program exists.
