Mt. Lebanon Soccer Association

U9 Travel Academy

Do you have a son or daughter born in 2011?


Join the MLSA’s U9 Fall 2019/Spring 2020 Academy!

This program is designed to develop young players in a positive, supportive and challenging atmosphere that will emphasize age-appropriate technical development and prepare them to play the 7v7 game whether it be recreational or more competitive play.

FALL (September-October)

  • Players will be grouped by developmental level to learn:
    1. soccer skill and technique
    2. rules of the game
    3. formation
    4. team play

  • Two – one hour practices a week with our professional trainers and volunteer parent coaches to develop soccer skill and technique via fun activities/games and learn to play 7v7.

  • Players will play 7v7 games on Sunday in-house (in Mt Lebanon only) with “instructional referees” who will teach the rules while reinforcing them throughout the game.

SPRING (April-May)

Not every player will be developmentally ready for U9 PA West League play in the Spring . We do not want to place players into the PA West League before they are ready. The U0 Academy Director will work with the Fall U9 Academy professional trainers to make the determination on what Spring program is best for each Academy player and will communicate with all parents during the winter. 

  • Players that are developmentally ready to join the Travel League will be placed on teams that will have 2 – one hour practices a week - one with our professional trainers and one with their team coach. They will play 7v7 games on Sundays in a PA West league against other clubs from Western PA (mostly Pittsburgh area).

  • Players who are not yet ready for the PA West League will continue their development in the MLSA Spring Development Program (SDP) with our professional trainers. Then, in May, they can try out for the following year's U10 Travel Teams or, in Fall, play in the Lebo Cup Rec League, both of which will be 7v7.
