ACADEMY PROGRAM

 

ELIGIBILITY

Youth ages 9 through 12 are eligible for the Academy program. 

These ages are determined by the players age during the year that the next Spring soccer season takes place. 

This chart shows current program eligibility by birth year. 

Please Note:  Competitive Program teams for ages 11 and 12 may be created contingent upon player availability and desire among the Academy Program participants.  All players within these ages who'd like to play competitive soccer must register through the Academy Program. If there be enough interest to create competitive teams for this age range, additional costs will be collected from those players who end up playing competitive soccer.​

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Academy program provides a smooth transition between our Recreational program and our fully Competitive program for both players and their parents.

Academy’s emphasis is to increase the intensity of skills development and the competitiveness of play. The majority of Academy games are considered "friendlies," where the focus is on growth and development and getting all players on the field. Academy teams also compete in a few competitive tournaments that help transition players to the expectations of the competitive level.

TIME FRAME

Practice begins in the middle of March with the season ending around the end of May or beginning of June.

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

Uniforms need to be purchased through the website listed at the bottom of this section. They can be purchased online or in person at Dynamic Designs.
