SAW Soccer Academy provides an advanced player development environment where dedicated players can get focused training designed to supplement what they may already be doing with their traditional club, or school programs. SAWSA players will benefit from small group training sessions every week, each led by highly experienced coaches representing several high school programs within the Augusta County region. Each player will experience a fun, intense training environment and will gain insight into their level of play and will be given individualized feedback to help guide their continuing development.
Training in smaller groups of technically similar players, known as "pool training", puts the focus on individual development and ensures each athlete has the opportunity to maximize the efficiency of their training time.
SAWSA is Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro soccer - we're focused on providing more effective training for our players. There's no more traveling to adjacent regions for antiquated, team-focused training and competition.
Flexible training schedules allow SAWSA players to increase training time while continuing to play for their local club. Innovative training techniques and intelligent use of technology further enhance the efficiency of your training.
