The Academy’s soccer curriculum is a progressive year-long program that develops player’s cognitive, technical and physical abilities. The training methods are modeled after some if the best soccer academies in the world. The curriculum includes individual assessment and skill development, cognitive soccer instruction, individual tactical concentration, team tactics, coach development, fitness for soccer, goalkeeper education and nutrition.

The academy uses the same modern facilities as the Monroe College Varsity Soccer team. These include a recently built lighted artificial turf field, state of the art weight room as well as indoor facilities.
