About Advantage Academy

The global game is nonstop. For over 100 years soccer has taken the world captive by the pure joy and passion it evokes from those of us who have the chance to play, coach, and watch it masterfully unfold before our very eye. Soccer has this uncanny ability to remove barriers, destroy stereotypes and bring people together in an extraordinary way. Whether it's meeting lifelong friends, establishing a consistent work ethic, or learning how to handle victory and defeat, the beautiful game changes you. No matter who you are, where you've been, whether this is your first time thinking about playing or you have been playing from the moment you could first walk, we believe the beautiful game is for you. Our heart is to bring the global game to your doorstep locally. Our coaches have been around the world playing, learning how to develop players, equipping coaches, and watching the game take people's breath away from local streets to the World Cup. Advantage Academy is a soccer movement taking Northwest Arkansas by storm. We're a group of people that are players, coaches and fans who love the beautiful game and want to see our community transformed as we engage with one another through leagues, camps, and lessons for players of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Come join us! Be the Advantage.

Elite Camp

The Elite Camp is geared toward top-level players in NWA and the surrounding region. With coaches represented from three continents who have played professionally and spent years coaching the beautiful game, expect to come away from camp with a greater joy for the game and a more astute understanding of how to play both tactically and technically.

Each morning we will work on various aspects of the game: control, dribbling, passing, attacking scenarios, defending even-numbered and out-numbered, as well as crossing and finishing. Each afternoon we will compete in various tournaments with competitions for every age group to help sharpen the tactical understanding of how to play in various situations and setups and emphasize work on set pieces, corners, and develop situational awareness.
