Jr Academy

Program Description

The Jr. Academy is the first stepping stone towards our academy programs and our "Talented player pathway".  The program welcomes the most focused, and dedicated players in our U5-U8 programs to train and play a little extra, and prepares players for the U9 Academy programs and beyond.

Players will work with some our club's most qualified coaches, and can expect to regularly work through small sided games, technical exercises (ball mastery), physical literacy (strength, speed, coordination, balance, general athleticism), and 1v1 exercises.

Jr. Academy players must participate in the U6-U8 base soccer program each week.  In addition, they attend a second weekly training session with the Jr. Academy players, as well as participating in the highly popular champion's league on Saturday mornings with the U9 Academy and competitive players.
