Friday Night Lights Training

Throughout the season, Southlake offers complimentary training and open field time on Friday nights to Southlake soccer players on the Hazen High School and Maywood Middle School turf fields. This is one of the many benefits of being part of the Southlake family. The turf is at the northwest corner of the Hazen campus, west of the large water tanks. For spring 2024, our Friday Night Lights program runs from April 19th through May 31st, except for the Friday before Memorial Day weekend, May 24th. Training starts at 6pm. The full schedule:

April 19: Maywood MS
April 26: Hazen HS
May 3: Hazen HS
May 10: Maywood MS
May 17: Hazen HS
May 24: NO TRAINING – Memorial Day Weekend
May 31: Honey Dew Elementary

Southlake partners with professional trainers from UK International to provide skills training for our Southlake players. Our Director of Coaching, Bryan Iotte, oversees and helps with the training. The trainings are divided into two sessions by age group. The first session is from 6-7pm for kids under 9 years old. The second session for 10 years old and up is from 7-8:15pm.

Our goalkeeper trainer, Leif Moe-Lobeda, trains keepers as part of Friday Night Lights. The first session is for ages 8-11 from 6-7:15pm, ages 11-19 train from 7:15-8:30pm.

If there are sufficient players, unstructured, self-organized open field play with adult supervision goes on at the same time from 6-8pm.
