Helping players achieve a greater personal playing level
Soccer Made in America's (SMIA) dynamic technical and tactical system of training provides players with a greater skill level elevation resulting in more confidence and composure on the ball. Unlocking negative technical execution will greatly affect performance but more importantly provide players the opportunity to elevate their fundamental blocks to reach their full potential.
SMIA is a west suburban-based Advanced Private Training Program developed by Internationally known Aleks Mihailovic, a United States Adult Soccer Association national director of coaching, former professional soccer player, and well-respected mentor of the game. He conducts and oversees all elements, therefore SMIA trainers effectively communicate our methods and technical principles to fully benefit the individual player. Every training session is customized to fully maximize player's skill progression and tactical understanding.
