An Academy is a pool of players or larger groups (usually two teams) who train together. Players will have a team assigned that will generally remain consistent with the goal to have balanced teams. In the event we are invited to participate in opportunities of varying skill sets, we may make a more advanced team and fundamental team. Our goal is an optimal training and development environment that pool training provides. This gives you the best player pathway and opportunity to reach development milestones and benchmarks that also meet the growth and development of individual players within a team and age group scope.
*U8 Academy players do not need to be experienced or highly skilled to qualify for the Academy. We ask that U8 Academy players are ready to learn, work hard, and have fun in a competitive and elevated environment. 2013s are encouraged to participate in the U8 Academy with the majority of their age group. U8's who feel they are not ready for the U8 Academy should register for the U7/8 Jr Academy. The primary difference is fewer contacts per week, and games are inter-club only. The curriculum will vary slightly from the U8 Academy.
Players born in 2014 who are interested in joining U8 Academy NEED approval from the Director of Jr Academy, Desiree Cremeen.
If your player has out grown their current uniform jersey or shorts, we will offer pieces ala carte in the registration:
WHITE OR BLACK JERSEY: $20
BLACK SHORTS: $10
BLACK SOCKS: $5
