Curriculum

The ACE Curriculum is designed to challenge each student while developing physical, mental and emotional growth through team work while helping the student develop a love for the game. We believe that students who have a sincere passion for the game want to be challenged. ACE Academy also encourages home study skills and rewards effort in practice. We at ACE will make every effort to help each student become the 4 D’s we believe in: DESIRE – DEDICATION – DISCIPLINE – DIVERSITY.

 

STANCE ON EDUCATION:  "Don’t put a child’s curriculum in a box and tell them what to learn. Rather, put them on a field and let them explore their potential."

 Chad Wissler, Academy Director - Madison

 

 

 

 

PILLARS OF CURRICULUM:

 

  • Speed and Agility Training  –  learning multiple facets of dynamic body control, foot agility, and explosive speed through games and competitive challenges. 
  • Individual Foot Skill  –  developing the ability to use both feet effectively while developing a soft touch on the ball. Helping students increase their confidence of “touch” in low pressure and high pressure situations. 
  • Passing  –  developing students ability to properly pass the ball to targets in game speed situations and also understanding how to play “out of pressure”.
  • Shooting  –  Helping students understand it is about placement of shots vs power. Building students confidence of striking under pressure. Ankle stability activities will help dictate future power on the ball. 
  • Team Building  –  Allowing students to understand how the game is actually played from a 4v4 format and also building upon a 7v7 to a 9v9 format. Using creative game shape techniques to balance field and create give and go situations. Creating friendships and bonds on and off the field. 
  • Strength  –  Developing students upper body and lower body strength for age appropriate levels. Using fun games and challenges.
