Spring 2024 Baltimore Bays 1st TOUCH Academy


The Baltimore Bays 1st TOUCH Academy training program is for children ages 4 to 8 years. The program is designed to introduce our youngest players to the game. Research has shown that involvement in sport at a young age will help in developing basic motor and cognitive skills. The program uses fun based soccer training activities that focus on developing a range of fundamental skills. Specific focus is given to:

  • Agility, balance, and coordination
  • Physical awareness
  • Movement patterns and sequences
  • Spatial awareness
  • Social skills
  • Listening skills


  • Each session has been designed around fun based games that promote the programs core values.
  • The program has been designed by professional soccer coaches for the early development of children in soccer.
  • Each class is delivered by highly enthusiastic and experienced Baltimore Bays youth soccer coaches.

While the theme of the session is soccer, the main focus of the program is to help develop a strong physical foundation and enhance advanced motor skills.


  • Each session typically runs for 60 minutes, with one session per week over a 6 week period.
  • Courses are offered in the Spring.
