Aztec Soccer

Once again, Aztec Soccer is pleased to head back to Governor's Academy for our youth and high school soccer training summer programming. This is a great opportunity for boys and girls in a range of ages and abilities to experience first-class training in a first-class environment.  The high school program is a great opportunity for high school teams to join together ahead of their preseason to get a head start on the competition. High-school aged players that don't come with their team will be grouped together as a team for the duration of the program.
