Offseason Information


OPTIONAL SUMMER PROGRAMS - These are optional programs provided to help players hoping to try out for the Prior Lake High School boys soccer program improve throughout the summer season.  We're really excited about being able to provide these opportunities for our program this summer. 

FOR THOSE REGISTERING, YOU can choose to sign up for just THE FITness SESSIONS, just THE FIELD TRAINING SESSIONS, or both. 


Registration for the FITness SESSIONS and FIELD TRAINING SESSIONS is now open - players MUST be registered to participate.

*Note - these programs are different from Laker Performance, which is a summer strength and conditioning program run at the high school (that players could choose to attend instead) - you would NOT be able to attend Laker Performance and the FITness and FIELD TRAINING sessions as times would overlap.  This will be discussed further at the Spring Meeting.


The FITness option will consist of a summer training program designed for the PL Boys Soccer Program by Aaron Leventhal and his team at FIT Studios.  The program will be administered by PL Boys Soccer coaches.

The document below was sent to players/families in November 2022.

The first page is full of what we want from our players and future leaders - many of which were areas of focus for our leadership discussions as a program this fall.  The second page outlines options and opportunities available during the high school offseason.


Please share, please talk about these things, and please let us know if there are great things happening that we could highlight and acknowledge.  We'd love you to reach out if you have constructive feedback or ideas for the boys soccer program as we move forward.  We want to continue to provide a program built for the players and supported by families, the school, and our community...and we need your help to accomplish this.




ON YOUR OWN - Individual Training

Your individual fitness and skill levels are under your control.  If you want to get better, you have to dedicate the time to work at it. And the more meaningful you choose to make the work - the more improvement you will see!  

Try it!  15-20 minutes of focused ball work at least a few days a week for an extended period of time.  15 minutes of hard, focused work will do you better than an hour of goofing around and not trying to get better,  Yes, every minute with your foot on the ball helps, but if those minutes have purpose, you will see improvement.

Below are some resources with great individual workouts or skill sessions for anyone interested.


The options below are free of charge - available on YouTube.  Bring up a video, follow along, and put some work in.
