Established in 1991 by founder Coach Gus Ventura as Academia de Fútbol (Soccer Learning Center of Saline), our academy was created to offer youth players the individual training and attention needed to elevate their game. At a time when soccer was still very young in this country, Coach Gus and Academia de Fútbol helped many young players discover a love and passion for the game for over a decade. His players went on to become successful at their clubs, schools, and some progressed to the collegiate level. Fast forward to today, Coach Gus and his son Coach Tony are starting the new Academia de Fútbol Ventura for youth players of the greater Ann Arbor area.
At Academia de Fútbol Ventura our philosophy is to create technically and tactically skillful players by instilling in them a solid foundation and understanding of the game through simple, effective, and age appropriate training sessions. Providing individual attention will allow your son or daughter to maximize their time training and progress to the next level of their journey as a soccer player.
Based on the values of hard work, commitment, and having fun, Academia de Fútbol Ventura can help your child to become not only the best soccer player he or she can be, but also a better individual.
