STRENGTH ACADEMY

STRENGTH ACADEMY

OUR NEWEST PROGRAM, WICHITA STRENGTH ACADEMY, WILL PROVIDE PLAYERS WITH PROFESSIONAL STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, AND AGILITY TRAINING!

Wichita Academy strives to provide professional development to players wanting to improve their game.  We are now able to develop STRONGER, FITTER, and more AGILE players!

Soccer is a very physically demanding sport. It is very common for players to run anywhere from 3 -15 miles, over the course of a 90 minute game. When players play in high school, college and professionally, they are expected to play 90 minutes plus! That means constant accelerating, decelerating, changing directions and being able to tackle! Soccer players must develop strong core, leg, and upper body muscles if they want to be able to compete.

It is vitally important players learn how to properly lift weights and understand how to develop each muscle group. Improper weightlifting techniques can cause athletes to injure themselves and can stunt their growth!

Just like learning how to properly dribble a soccer ball can change your game, learning proper running and sprinting techniques will take your game to the next level!

GET FITTER, GET FASTER, GET STRONGER

Kyle Eno

Kyle started Wichita Academy to provide Wichita and surrounding areas with quality professional coaching. He believes that all kids deserve to be given the best coaching possible regardless of club affiliation, age and gender. He has found that most coaching in Wichita is a technical based approach with not much tactical and decision making involved. Understanding the game and making decisions is what sets players apart when going to the next level, so he started Wichita Academy to provide both Technical and Tactical training.

Kyle has over 10 years of coaching experience which has included the college and semi professional levels. Kyle has worked kids as young as 2 years old and has worked with professional athletes as well.

Kyle was born and raised in Wichita, so the soccer community means a lot to him here. Kyle went on to play at Newman University.

During his time there, Friends University won the KCAC tournament, which got them a NAIA national tournament birth for first time in school history.

Kyle left friends to join FC Wichita coaching staff to work with both NPSL and WPSL goalkeepers. During his time with FC Wichita Kyle has worked with NCAA Division 1 goalkeepers including Paulo Pita, who was drafted 24 over all in the 2020 MLS draft.

Kyle's goal is to develop each kid with their future in mind. He is big on player first mentality and wants to provide the opportunities and tools to get each kid to where they want to be, when the time comes.

Kyle currently holds:

USSF C License (United States Soccer Federation)
USC Advanced National Goalkeeper Diploma (United Soccer Coaches)
USC Psychology and Mental Skills Diploma
USC Attacking Principles of Play Diploma
