Lifezone Pre Academy


Lions SC is part of Lifezone FC - one of the largest and most dominant clubs in the Chicago area. In order to prepare talent for the rigors of competitive play, we've designed Lifezone Pre-Academy.

Ideal for players new to soccer, this level of play provides youth players with a fun environment where basic skills are introduced.

Each session includes 30-40 minutes of skill acquisition training. One of our top coaches and an assistant coach work with players on the fundamentals of dribbling, evading pressure, striking the ball, scoring and defending.

The remaining time in each session is spent on competition in fun scrimmage format. This prepares our players for a future in travel/competitive soccer.


Players age 5-8 are invited to be part of the Lifezone Pre Academy Program. There is no pre-requisite of experience or ability.

If your player is younger than 5 years old, you should consider the Lifezone Cubbies program instead - starting as early at 18 months old.


Pre-Academy class is $50 per month for 4 sessions and billed as a month-to-month program. You can also pay as you go at a fee of $20 per session.

Your first session is always a free trial so register today.


To ensure year-round training we host our Pre-Academy indoors at our state-of-the-art facility lifezone360.

The address is 999 West Main Street in West Dundee. You can't miss it.
