Academy Information

 

U-9 Academy Fall 2013/Spring 2014

Overview

This program will be different than the traditional select format where players try-out, are placed on Premier and/or Classic teams traveling teams, and then play in leagues and tournaments. In soccer terms, an "Academy” is when a club keeps a collection of players within an age group as opposed to placing them on individual teams. All players of the particular age group will train together. This will allow players to work with a highly licensed training staff to improve their overall skill development. The emphasis will be on technical training and working to instill a passion and love for playing with the ball (and less on competitive matches). The purpose of the "Academy” is on player development through a greater emphasis on training and by creating the most fun and supportive player-centered environment as possible. Trainers will also have an emphasis placed on coaching education to enhance the youth coaches' knowledge and teaching of the game of soccer!

Fees

Fees for the Academy are $250.00 per season or $500.00 per year.
