Academy Information

Academy Program Overview
The Academy Program is comprised of 8U through 12U players (boys and girls ages 6-12 years old). The overall focus of this program is to provide development of technical skills, with no emphasis on wins vs. losses. All Academy teams practice at least twice per week and will be trained by professional club coaches to provide the players with the best foundation of skills, abilities, and knowledge of the game.  

Players must tryout for the Academy Program, with no guarantee of acceptance. We do aim to provide every player the opportunity to play Academy-level soccer, but this is not always possible. In age groups with multiple teams, players are grouped according to skill level. This ensures consistent development for each player, because playing with/against similarly skilled players at this age is important. As much as possible, games for each team are scheduled against opponents with similar skill/ability levels.
