EJ Futball Training Academy is partnering with Seattle United to support the future soccer stars of Seattle and Shoreline in a new micro-soccer program!Lil’ Strikers will focus on players 4 – 8 years of age. We will introduce them to the fundamentals of soccer in a positive, supportive environment. Following established positive coaching guidelines, we will cover foundational skills such as passing, dribbling, shooting, 1v1, ball-mastery, and most importantly, having fun! We will grow the love of the beautiful game through positive experiences that promote solid technical skills.

Ebrima Jatta (EJ) and his staff have successfully trained and coached Seattle players of all levels – from beginning players to professionals.

Programs Refund Policy: refunds will be awarded only when (a) a player is injured and is unable to return to the program (a signed physician’s note required); (b) a family moves beyond a 50 mile radius of club headquarters, or (c) when a refund request is made one week prior to the start of the program’s first session.
