Our Development Academy is the earliest stage of our youth player development model. This training-only program uses the same, coaches as in the older age groups and implements a well-structured curriculum that promotes young players’ motor skill development while developing a comfort level with the ball. The technical objective of the 5 to 10-year-olds’ program is to teach players to dribble.
Dribbling is the foundation skill for all the other skills and must be taught first. Coaches will discourage aimless kicking, as it develops bad habits and has no long-term benefits. This new program is intended to help and prepare our young athletes for competitive and travel leagues.

Robert coached and privately trained my son for several years and is very passionate and knowledgeable of the sport. We won several state championships under his guidance. He made soccer fun and exciting for the kids while been extremely competitive. I highly recommend Robert and Square One Sports!
Coach Robert was my coach when I was 8 years old, and now I am 22 years old playing soccer professionally in Europe. I remember the first day of training I had with him and a new team. He was engaging and very motivating for me. He helped me fall in love with the sport and he truly invested in my potential.
I am happy to see the development of Square One Sports in my hometown and I would encourage everyone to take advantage of the great atmosphere and training that it provides!
Coach Robert does an amazing job teaching the game of soccer. He draws the attention of the kids and keeps them all focused on their drills.
Wonderful place to encourage kids in soccer skills!
I HIGHLY recommend this facility! Robert is an amazing coach and trainer, and this facility will be a great addition to the community. Robert provided me with one-on-one training, which enhanced my skills and helped me become a 4 year All-State soccer player at Huntington High School and 4 year NCAA Division I player at Bucknell University. During my college years, Robert continued to help me prepare for preseason by allowing me to train with him and his team. He is a first rate coach and a genuinely, kind and hardworking person. I’m SO excited for this facility!
