PRE-ACADEMY U6, U7 or 5-7 year old player.
The Pre-Academy player has a love for soccer and a maturity to take instruction from a professional coach. Most pre-academy players have played in a recreational league or played with older siblings or mom and dad. Once in a while we assess a player with limited exposure but shows the desire and maturity to play together with a team. This level of play focuses on the development of foot skills, player movements, 1v1 , 2v2 and 3v3 styles of soccer. We play small sided games and use a #3 ball. We do not play league games but play many in house games and sometimes schedule friendlies against other teams. Early summer and winter is a good opportunity for this age group to play in a couple of tournaments in a 3v3 format.
ACADEMY U8, U9, U10, U11 Boys and Girls Teams
The Academy is the next level of soccer after recreational. This player must show a maturity and discipline to want to improve their foot skills, awareness, body movements and a positional style of play. We do begin to teach "how to play the game". As this season marches forward, we set up friendly matches against other clubs and possible other events when Coach feels they are ready for this level of pressure.
SELECT ACADEMY U7, U8, U9, U10, U11 Select Girls and Boys Teams
These teams are selected from the more skilled players. They have the opportunity to play friendly matches against other clubs as well as local tournament soccer. We do some travel, but play close to home against quality teams. The select team has some team fees and a team manager. The fees pay for tournaments, travel and referee fees. USA does the administration and club carding required for the tournaments
