LMVSC ACADEMY - U14 TEAM
Serious Soccer — Serious Fun!
The LMVSC U14 Boys Soccer Academy is a travel soccer academy within the Lee Mount Vernon Sports Club focused on player development and enjoying the game of soccer. Our teams play in the National Capital Soccer League with our home field at Edison High School. The Academy is trained by Coach Kyle Morsink. Game-day coaches are Coach Morsink and Coach Jay Ruelas, assisted by Coach Pat Burns.
The U14 Academy is in its fifth year of continued training and progression of LMVSC soccer players, fielding two teams that play throughout the Northern Virginia/Maryland area every weekend during the scheduled seasons. During the offseason, the academy schedules extensive training, practices, and conditioning.
The Academy is always looking for enthusiastic soccer players!

Keeping Up Their Skills Over the Winter
To keep their skills sharp over the winter season, the entire academy takes part in indoor practices, and outdoor practices when the weather permits. Because outdoor practices were few and far between (so much snow!), the coaches also gather the kids for a classroom curriculum and teambuilding events that help players stay focused on their goals and continue bonding as a team.
Coaches Morsink and Ruelas also took time to enhance their own skills by attending the 2014 National Soccer Coachees of America national conference in Philadelphia. They came back with lots of new insights and excited to share what they learned with the players and parents. They shared their vision with all the U13 parents at a recent meeting. Download their presentation.
The Academy takes opportunities to combine community service with fundraising. Last year, boys, coaches and parents gathered at Belle Haven Park in Alexandria and cleaned up the park, collecting quite a bit of trash. Passers-by complimented and thanked the boys for their efforts in helping keep the river-side park clean for all the people who frequent the park for picnics and to use the jogging path. It was great to see the boys banding together for such a worthwhile cause.
