BRISTOL - At Leszek Wrona’s Soccer Academy the motto is “Play Hard, Play Fair, Play to Win, Have Fun.”

The academy was founded by Wrona, a retired Polish association football defender who played professionally in Poland, German, and the United States in the 1970s and ‘80s. In the 1990s and 2000s he managed various professional teams, including the Connecticut Wolves, the Bridgeport Vasco da Gama, and the Western Mass Pioneers.

Located at 541 North Main St., his academy teaches players, ages four through 18, how to play the game of soccer.

Young players learn the fundamentals of the game - ball control, passing, defending, and scoring - each learning at their own pace. All players get an opportunity to compete, whether it be on a house team or a premier team for those looking to challenge themselves. Premier soccer is one of the most competitive leagues in the state.

“At Leszek Wrona’s Soccer Academy, we will always strive to bring together the best the world has to offer to soccer players, parents, and fans, in a friendly, family environment. We’ll do our best to make your experience here convenient, affordable, and enjoyable. We hope you’ll come for the soccer, stay for the hospitality, and return with a friend,” according to the academy’s website.

The academy also private lessons or small group training. In addition, there are adult leagues for men and women plus a great co-ed opportunity for adult players.
