Niupi Academy FC is a Soccer Camp for children ages 5 – 13. Our camp is divided into MODs (Modules) that run from March through September. The main objective of the Academy is to promote and emphasize the technical abilities of young soccer players, mainly dribbling skills as well as ball mastery. Why dribbling skills? Dribbling is the foundation for all the other fundamental skills of soccer, such as controlling the ball, passing and shooting. It takes years to become a comfortable and confident dribbler. For that reason, players must learn to combine body control, agility, coordination and balance with the mechanics of dribbling. The sooner they start the better. Trainers will use a range of age-appropriate training activities and techniques to maximize a player’s touches on the ball, including small-sided games that foster skill development, as well as imaginative and creative play. The ball mastery program will help foster confidence, creativity and composure during game play.
Academy coaches will mainly focus on development now and winning later.
Logan really enjoys camp. His favorite is the drills. It helps him develop the skills he needs on the field. I've noticed him improve tremendously since coach Andres came into his world, I see leadership qualities and skills on and off the field in my son I'm very proud of
My son's overall physique and game has significantly improved under coach Andres
Andres es un entrenador muy profesional con su clase es paciente y logra que sus alumnos aprendan y disfruten sus practicas.
Andres is a great hands-on coach who shows experience and patience, my son has definitely excelled since he began.
The coach at the soccer academy is incredible. Coach Andres started coaching my oldest daughter a little over a year ago and has developed her into a strong athlete. In addition, Coach Andres hugely supports academic excellence and all of the players know that their homework is just as important as the game. Coach Andres has been a huge blessing to our family and has gained the trust and respect of my daughter. When my daughter was having some difficulty in school, he was able to help turn things around. My daughter began training with Coach Andres with no experience and now she loves the game and is thriving in the sport. My younger daughter has also begun training with Coach Andres and loves training. As a mom and soccer coach, I highly recommend the Soccer Academy for beginners as well as experienced players.
It's been a great experience for my son learning soccer while having fun and making new friends. This is our second year doing camps at Niupi FC. Coach Andres Montoya and his assistants are very knowledgeable and professional. During these two years, my son has not only developed a love for soccer, but he has also learned team-work skills and self-discipline. I give Niupi Academy five stars and more for the dedication they put into each kid based on individual skills and levels. I will definitely recommend this Academy.
Coach Andres is a true professional and a very good soccer coach. He is a dedicated individual who tries to bring out the best in his kids through training them discipline, skills, and focus, to grow as a soccer player. In my personal experience, Achu (my son) made tremendous improvement as a young soccer player in a span of two years, and my son never played soccer prior to joining NIUPI FC. I can whole heartedly attest that it is all because of coach Andres and the training my son received at NIUPI FC. I would highly recommend NIUPI FC!!!
I attribute my child's progress and love for the game to coach Andres. The environment he creates allows each child to learn at their own pace without pressure of perfection. He understands that each child learns differently and executes each drill with patience and care. it is because of his coaching style that my child has learned skill that can be used both during a game and outside the sport. He deeply and sincerely cares for each child not only as a player but as an individual too. One word to describe the Niupi Academy; family.
Matteo aprendio tanto a ti coach Andres, aprendio a socializer con otros niños y a jugar mejor soccer. Gracias por tanta paciencia con los pequeños.
We are more then happy with the coaching Mia has had throughout these 6 weeks. Mia knows now how to kick the ball better, Dribbling, how to play together as a team, and she feels more confident playing out in the field. We would like to thank coach Andres for the patience and the time he takes to teach each kid. The methods and style he uses are very effective. We highly recommend him!
Coach Andres is an extremely knowledgeable coach. We would highly recommend him. Not only is he patient but he takes his time with each individual kid to do every single activity. We notice our son Sebastian has improved with his focusing, he has better control of the ball and has learn to socialize better.
Having my kids at Niupi FC Academy has been the best choice I could have ever made. From day one until now, I feel pleased with the hard work coaches do with the kids. Their skills and understanding of how to play this awesome sport has improve enormously. It's a pleasure to be part of this great group of people.
I can tell you with all honesty that Andres Montoya, is the BEST coach EVER!! The training Coach Andres provides is truly unique. He offers an environment where players can develop and be creative without the pressure of making mistakes. Through his leadership and coaching my daughter has made better decisions on the field, has increased confidence, and I attribute it all to Coach Andres positive coaching tactics. He has truly helped my daughter, become a player with better awareness and assurance. Coach Andres is a gem and a major asset to the Piscataway Soccer Team and Team Nupi Camp participants.
