Vision Soccer Academy

Current Available Programs

2019-2020 VSA Select

Select soccer is for players who wish to be in a more structured environment with players of similar commitment levels, technical, and/or physical abilities.

Tryouts are held in early June to determine teams.  

Invites from tryouts for 11U (09) and 12U (08) age divisions will be issued on or after 8:00 A.M. on June 17th.  Invites from tryouts for 13U (07) through 19U (01) divisions will be issued on or after 8:00 A.M. on June 27th.  

Tryout procedure dictates that you only have 12 hours to respond (8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.).  

All teams are coached by the VSA Professional Coaching staff.  Coaching assignments are announced at tryouts.  All professional coaches have experience playing and/or coaching soccer at a high level and an emphasis is placed on continuing education throughout the coaches’ tenure with our club.

Training: 3 practices per week and will take place at our the VSA Timberline Soccer Complex 

Games: ISL games* on weekends versus other select teams from Iowa and possibly Nebraska; 2-4 tournaments (usually in-state with a stronger likelihood of out-of-state travel for older teams) per season.  Some teams may participate in NPL as they get older and/or reach higher levels of team success.

Travel: Most league games take place in the metro area with some travel requirements taking teams to larger neighboring cities (for example, Cedar Rapids) within the state.  No overnight accommodations are necessary for league games.  Travel to out-of-town tournaments generally requires a minimum one-night stay.

Focus: Learn & develop personal character traits such as commitment to excellence, perseverance, focused drive and directed passion to succeed.  This is done through attention to detail in develop technical and physical soccer skills, and decision-making skills with the mental fortitude to overcome adversity; all the while developing team camaraderie with passion for competing to maximize individual and team performance excellence.
