Academy Program Information

The Academy Program is the Select Developmental Program for boys’ and girls’ teams from 9U through 12U (8-11 years old). All Academy players within the same gender and age group will practice at the same field and same time but we divide players into separate teams and training pools based on skill and ability. 

Academy Program Benefits:

Professional Youth Coaches manage all training sessions and games 

Focus on Individual Player Development and we eliminate keeping scores and reduce pressure on players and coaches to get results
