MPA Academy

U7-U10 (Birth years 2012-2015)

The MPA Academy is designed for boys and girls in the U7-U10 age groups and is the highest level of training offered in Midwest Premier Academy for these age groups. Players in the Academy will train one to two nights as a week with Midwest Premier Academy top level coaching staff.

Every nationally licensed coach will conduct each training session and oversee and instruct during every game. The special curriculum, development model and training methodology has been developed by Midwest Premier Academy in conjunction with some of the top clubs around the world. 

Players will train one to two times a week in the Fall and Spring in Omaha, or Lincoln dependent on the make up of the team and you will have access to indoor training sessions over the winter.

We will participate in games in the Nebraska League or the Alliance Soccer League. These games will be played in the Metropolitan area; Gretna, Omaha, Springfield, Lincoln etc.

Teams will also participate in local tournaments in the Fall and Spring and Futsal during the Winter (not included in your registration fee). Depending on level top Academy teams may travel to Kansas or Iowa for 1-2 tournaments a year at coaches discretion.

Age Groups

The MPA Academy is available for players who are born in 2012-2015.

Why choose Academy?


The focus is on individual player development and not on wins/losses. Players will get the opportunity to play in all positions and be comfortable with both feet. We encourage creativity by creating an environment where players feel safe to make mistakes. 

Players will be placed on teams, but will have the opportunity to train with other teams within your birth year throughout the year. If players need to be challenged even more they will have the opportunity to play up or for female players to train with boys.

We fully support all players to participate in other sports/activities. Research shows that playing multiple sports is better for an athletes body.
