Pre-Academy: U13-U14

  • Our Pre-Academy program provides a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate soccer environment for 12- to 14-year-olds. Our program endeavors to present techniques during training and game environments in such a manner which promotes all players’ enjoyment of soccer.  Our goal is to develop a life-long love of the game, regardless of the eventual level of play a player attains. 

    The Pre-Academy program is focused on helping players grow in their technical skills and learn the rules of soccer at a developmentally appropriate level for their age, with a focus on individual skill.  All players are presented with regular age-appropriate technical competitions to provide formal feedback (and motivation).  Players are regularly assessed in competitive environments by our knowledgeable licensed staff.  Players will receive a solid foundation of coaching needed to continue into the Academy level and onward.

    • Teams play 11v11 games with goalkeepers as we focus on improving each player’s technical ability with the ball.
    • Individual and team tactics become more of an emphasis
    • Teams are coached by a licensed coach.
    • Teams practice twice a week.
    • Players are offered 8-12 technical trainings per year.
    • Players are offered 1-2 winter training per week.
    • Teams play 14-16 league games each season and attend additional tournaments.
  • Our Pre-Academy program emphasizes developing the complete player in all 4 pillars of the game including: technical, tactical, physical, and psychological. Our program is designed specifically for those players who desire advanced training from professional staff. Through our program players learn to be comfortable with the ball at their feet, have vision, handle pressure, be organized, and to work together while having fun as they develop a love for the game.
