FEB 6 - APR 10

Eagleclaw FC and Eagleclaw coach James Riley bring you the Advanced Athlete Performance (AAP) program.  This is the only training program in Seattle focused on the high-performing athlete (age 13-17) who is ready to take EVERYTHING about their game to the next level.  Are you on the "Path to Pro", focused on playing college soccer or both?  Now its your move!   This is your chance to train with and learn from an experienced ex-professional and former Wake Forest University player who succeeded at the highest levels of the game in the U.S. with a lengthy pro career featuring 11 seasons in Major League Soccer (MLS).  James will teach you the skills and habits used by the pros to train, maintain and reach new levels of abilities as an up-and-coming elite footballer.  


The Advanced Athlete Performance is a holistic program focused on helping our Advanced Academy players in three core areas of their development as high performance athletes:

  1. Technical skills training

  2. Soccer-specific mental skills training

  3. Development of nutritional habits for the high-performance athlete


This 10-week program is limited to only 20 ambitious players.
