A.C. Cesena/FIGC Summer Academy

FIGC 2018 Summer Academy Reg NOW OPEN!!

Summer 2018 Program Registration Now Open!!

The Cesena USA Summer Academy is specifically designed to instruct and inspire our players! This instructional program refines fundamental technical skills and reinforces functional training on the field. It is also designed to identify strength and weaknesses as our coaches encourage creative decision making with limited time and space. Italian Federation Coaches from the FIGC will conduct all our sessions.

This year the summer academy is confined to the '05-'09 age groups and designed for our field players and goal keepers.

Since 2009 this program has taught our players to redirect their energy and focus as it creates confidence for the upcoming fall 2018 league season!!
