What is the Star Academy?

The Star Acadamy exists to identify players that are ready for the challenge of an increased emphasis on technical training and a competitive atmosphere. The curriculum is based around a technical focused training program within Lou Fusz Athletic (LFA). The academy starts for boys and girls age U6–U8. Our staff is completed by coaches with former professional and collegiate playing experience. This program is the first step for a young athlete at LFA in the development pathway. The focus is placed firmly upon developing and instilling proper skils and techniques within our athletes, while progressing into game play. Players will build a strong foundation to grow from as they learn the core necessities of the game. The Star Program runs seasonally, with the next step being teams shaped at the U9 age group with a year commitment from player and club, and an introduction to LFA Blue/ Red / White Star teams.
