our program

Players train with SL Benfica academy coaches using training techniques created in Lisbon.

Running through the fall and spring soccer seasons, our eight week programs are designed as a supplement to your team's training.

Using methods developed for SL Benfica's Academy in Lisbon, our sessions focus on technical development and tactical understanding, helping players make better decisions and have the technical ability to execute them. Benfica's Training Program players will receive hundreds more touches per week than their peers and receive training from SL Benfica youth academy coaches - rated as the top academy in the world in 2015.

The Benfica Soccer School Training Program accepts players of all skill levels and is primarily designed for players from other programs, though Benfica Academy DC players are welcome to register. The program is open to both boys and girls of all ages.
