This is the introductory program to elite competition and travel. Directly connected to the Jr. Academy program, the Academy teams are trained twice weekly using a curriculum based on age appropriate guidelines outlined by US Soccer. Academy coaching professionals offer technical and tactical sessions formulating the core building blocks essential to higher level competition. Teams travel and participate in leagues based on the level of performance and a serious commitment is expected from players, parents and coaches alike. Licensed coaches conduct age and skill appropriate training programs with emphasis on technical development of the players. This will be accomplished by a maximum number of touches on the ball. We are committed to creating a passion for the sport of soccer through a fun, positive training environment..
