Lincoln Way Soccer Academy Info

The LW Soccer Academy Program is NOT your traditional recreational soccer program. The program’s focus is to create an environment for all players to gain experience and knowledge in soccer. The program is designed to provide maximum technical training to teach the player the necessary skills to develop. More ball touches for individual players, small sided matches to build skills.

The program is lead by Lincoln-Way Soccer Club (LWSC) Coach Kevin Theiss and assisted by other LWSC licensed coaches and current club players.
