Vermont Academy Soccer with LaLiga Grassroots
Our soccer program participates in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) and Lakes Region during the fall as usual with Vermont Academy faculty and staff coaching the teams.
Outside of the regular soccer season, in addition to participating on other VA athletics teams, our student athletes have the opportunity to play for LaLiga Grassroots and be coached by LaLiga coaches. LaLiga Grassroots is a global initiative by LaLiga, the professional league in Spain, to support, promote, and bolster grassroots football around the world. They have several club academies around the world. LaLiga partnered with US Club soccer in 2015 and have started programs in Miami, New York, and now Vermont. Like these US club teams, LaLiga Academy Vermont is overseen by a LaLiga Technical Director and other UEFA certified coaches to offer technical and tactical training under the LaLiga methodology while participating in domestic and international club competitions, showcases, and tournaments.
