The academy provides a training atmosphere in which players can thrive, improve and enjoy the game. The experience is designed to be challenging in order to push players to a higher level. The curriculum is well rounded with the idea of expanding the player’s knowledge of the game. It is a progressive curriculum that helps foreign players learn and navigate the American collegiate soccer system. Training is designed to be enjoyable yet challenging with the goal of having every player who comes to the academy leave as a better player. Players can expect a very different learning experience on the soccer field than what they are used to. Cognitive soccer training is a major part of the curriculum at Monroe. Players will become better problem solvers and thinkers on the field as they play. It is very important that the hard work done on the field be taken into the classroom as well. Players that leave us should be proud of their efforts with results that show both on the field and in the classroom. Players who do well in the classroom are open to academic scholarships if they decide to move on.
