home school soccer training program
WHAT IS PATHWAY
A program that gives young/amateur athletes the opportunity to train 2-3 times a day without falling behind academically in school. It’s AN ALTERNATIVE option to give young athletes who aspire to play the game at the highest level an opportunity to follow a professional style training regimen. We keep our players fit and injury free while mastering their technical ability and game/positional IQ. This give the player a real chance to master their ability. This program is for serious and responsible athletes with professional aspirations. PATHWAY will be a compliment to the athletes club training.
How's its possible?
APT Pathway will provide our athletes with all the training resources to immensely develop their technical skill and physical ability. More importantly, we will provide our student athletes with the structure to complete their school work without physically being present in school. This gives them the flexibility to complete school work around training sessions and practices.
The Pathway program provides a class room environment for the athletes to independently do their school work with an in-class teacher to keep the students on task and on track. The students will have the option to enroll in Florida Virtual School – free on-line public school, or Laurel Springs School – private on-line school. Both platforms allow the student-athletes to do all their school work on the computer anywhere and any time. 3.00 GPA is required to stay in the program.
The players train twice a day; a morning session to focus on developing their technical ability and an afternoon session to increase athleticism and conditioning. Intensity and workload is closely monitored to avoid over-training, and to ensure the players can excel at their club practices and games.
BUILDING BETTER HUMAN BEINGS
The primary focus is to develop a professional athlete. However we understand that nothing is guaranteed in life, and even professional careers come to an end. At PATHWAY we make sure we teach and instill characteristics such as mental fortitude, discipline, accountability, humility, etc. so our student athletes can thrive in any environment.
We aim to complete 20 hours of community service hours through out the school year. Last school year we volunteered at preschools to teach kids the fundamentals of soccer, and volunteered with Habitat for humanity to help families in need. We hope this give our athletes a different perspective of life to not take anything for granted.
