LM Premier Academy Visit Chicago Red Stars

LM Premier U13 Girls had the opportunity this past weekend to visit the Chicago Red Stars and learn first hand from Assistant Coach Craig Harrington about what it takes to be an elite female athlete within the National Women's Soccer League.

LM Premier Academy staff had the chance to take in the women's training session ahead of their game v Utah Royals on Friday and they also had the opportunity to enjoy the 2-1 win against Utah on Saturday in the final NWSL game of the regular season.

LM Premier also had the opportunity to attend seminars delivered by Craig Harrington at the Seat Geek Stadium, which offered great insight into what it takes to be an elite athlete.

Some key take aways from the seminar are that elite players have:

  • Desire to be the best and win everything

  • High Standards

  • Zero Entitlement

  • A ' do more' mentality

  • High Work Ethic

  • Respect for each other


We would like to thank Chicago Empire for their hospitality over the weekend and for providing the opportunity for LM Academy Girls to play this weekend against a Red Stars Partner club.

Thank You Chicago Red Stars and good luck in the NWSL Semi Finals!
