After many years of playing and coaching soccer in Orlando and Central Florida, it became apparent there is a large local demand for true soccer development, with a structure that teaches kids all about the game, and how it can help them grow both socially and athletically.
The academy has been established by a very experienced soccer coach:
Fabio Silva, originally from Brazil, has lived in Orlando for the past 19 years. He is currently a Lake Nona resident. In Brazil, he participated in all junior levels for known teams like the Corinthians, Santos and Atlético Paranaense. Fabio graduated from Cypress Creek High school in Orlando, and went on to play soccer for UCF from 2001 to 2005.
The main focus of the new academy is to develop a passion for the game in a fun, professional and organized manner, where kids of all ages can receive superior quality training. If they should go on to compete in soccer at a college level, the coaches they would be exposed to will find them better prepared for a future soccer career.
We are creating a top-notch academy right here in Lake Nona, a solid soccer club well able to be competitive with the “powerhouses” around town. Currently we have arranged to play at the Lake Nona Middle School and other fields around the community.
