Academy eligible youth ages 10 through 12.
These ages are determined by the current year minus the player’s 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.
The Academy program (9v9) U11/U12 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.
Practice begins in the middle of March with the season ending around mid June.
Uniforms need to be purchased through the website listed at the bottom of this section. The website also includes any fan gear you may want to order. Uniforms will need to be ordered prior to March 13th in order to guarantee you will have them for the first weekend of games. Numbers have been assigned to players through the club.
Also, please note the size and gender differences. There are adult and youth sizes, as well as women/girls uniforms. Please make sure you order the proper uniform set.
