In 2010, Field of Dreams Academy and The Art of Soccer Academy established a strategic partnership with the primary goal of sharing resources to expand academic learning, athletic development and promoting community outreach programs to children ages 5 – 18 year old in metro Atlanta communities.
These programs include Apple Youth Workshops, Annual Coat Drive for the Children’s Homeless Shelter, Executive Leadership Speaker Series, U.S. Junior Olympics Festival, NBA Fit Challenge, and First Lego Robotics Competition.
“Our organizations share a passion and commitment to position our youth for success on and off the field through academics, athletics and community outreach,” said Ed Armand, Co-Founder & Executive Director, The Art of Soccer Academy.
The Art of Soccer Academy is a newly formed, Atlanta-based soccer player development organization. Founded in 2006, the program is designed to provide children and young adults, ages 8 and up, with a highly competitive soccer program that enriches their lives as well as develops their athleticism. Through technical skills training, academic development, community outreach, and social exchange with global communities, The Art of Soccer Academy offers a holistic approach to developing student athletes into productive global citizens.
“Sport is something that is very inspirational for young people.”
