AUBURN — McG United Soccer Academy is excited to again bring back the Elite Soccer Academy session for this summer. This group is made up of 12-to-16-year-old players who wish to prepare for the upcoming middle and high school season. It teaches and promotes ball control, small-sided skills, and games ending the day with a full field match.

This year’s coaches are again going to be Dan Gish and Abdijabar Hersi. Dan is the Varsity Boys Soccer coach at Lewiston High School and has complied a two-year record of 25-1-1. Coach Gish was a twenty-year assistant coach for the Blue devils before becoming the head coach. Coach Hersi is currently the assistant coach at Central Maine Community College, a very capable and competitive playoff team. Abdijabar was also a valuable assistant coach at Lewiston High School.

The McG United Soccer Academy will take place July 25-29 at the Lewiston Area Youth Soccer Association fields in Auburn. Anyone who may want to obtain a brochure can contact Mike McGraw.

There is a discount for players who register before May 15 and another before July 1st.
