Academy Soccer Information:

Birth year range of 2011-2014 

In-House Recreational Soccer is designed to teach soccer foundations while helping players develope a strong sense of confidence.  This level of play has a strong focus on fun, individual ball skills, and game basics.  Each week teaches a new skill and continues to reinforce the previously learned skills.  All games are in-house and small sided with the player count not to exceed 5 vs 5.  No score or standings are recorded at this level.  There are two age groups, U6 and U8.  The age group is determined by your child's birth year.  

U6 - This is a very introductory program based on the basics of dribbling.  There is some parent involvement during practice.  Games will be incorporated into the sessions like, freeze tag and red light / green light.  Learning to walk and run with a ball, while doing simple turns is a key component.  

We do not teach positions at this age. Soccer at this level is to be enjoyable and not identified by position. 

U7/U8: In-house, Indoor, and 5v5 travel- This is a beginner level program based on dribbling and an introduction to passing and shooting.   There is limited parent involvement during practice as we are getting players ready to play travel soccer.  We will incorporate games into practice with some competition.  Advancing from dribbling to passing and shooting as the season progresses.
