Our soccer program will participate in the 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 will 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 will be 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.

Balance and Flexibility Our Assistant Head of School, Brian Gilloran, talks about the importance of balance and trying new things on campus, “We create a structure to instill the habits in our kids so that they can try everything, as long as they do it in a methodical, deliberate way. The goal is to support that student holistically and encourage them to try as many things to better understand who they want to be in the future”.
