The Academy Program
2014-2013 Birth Years: Boys & Girls
Let’s get ready for competitive soccer!
The bridge between Recreational and Competitive soccer
The Academy Program enables a smooth transition between the two levels of soccer and aims to install a passion for sports, specifically soccer, within our players at the youngest age groups . The Academy Program is for all boys and girls, ages 8 to 10 years of age who are looking for a more competitive environment. We call this our Confidence Phase (U9 to U10 ) within our player development pathway.
Love for the Ball Phase
(U9 to U10) Build LOVE, CONFIDENCE, and individual expression on the ball.
The focus in this phase is on developing and understanding proper technique in shooting, passing, receiving the ball, as well as continuing to grow individual creativity to take players on 1v1. Players build confidence, ball mastery, and more importantly a love for the ball.
