Our mission is to advance the evaluation and preparation of aspiring collegiate and professional soccer players aged 14 and up, by coupling traditional, subjective assessment, with cutting-edge technology to more accurately analyze physiological and soccer-specific metrics.
Gradum is unlike any other youth soccer academy. Our unique, data-driven approach, and 5:1 staff-to-player ratio gives participants the opportunity to receive individualized feedback from those who have first-hand experience with the game at a high level.
By integrating soccer-specific considerations (pass completion rates, on-field movement tracking via heatmaps, etc.) with objective, technology-based evaluation of physiological metrics (heart rate, recovery rates, accelerations, etc.), Gradum is able to create custom training programs for each player; targeting the most important areas and maximizing player progression during formative developmental years.
Gradum is powered by former collegiate and professional soccer players and powerful, advanced technology. Our deep knowledge of the game coupled with a data-driven foundation sets Gradum apart from other youth training programs by rooting player evaluation and training in fact, not opinion.

“Gradum Academy has been one of the best preseason investments we have made in the 10 years of being a soccer family. We saw an increase in our boys’ level of play during their regular team scrimmages and game play. The coaches are the ultimate professionals. Their ability to teach soccer to the boys was gratifying by making it fun, stern, and comprehensive. I highly recommend Gradum Academy to any parent that is looking to enhance their child’s soccer game!”
