Program Overview

The Junior program, available exclusively to 8U & 7U recreational players, grants access to licensed coaching, age-appropriate skills training, and the development of tactical awareness.

Emphasizing individual skill enhancement, fostering a passion for the sport, and nurturing a sense of camaraderie and teamwork are central objectives of the Junior program. Participants will train under the guidance of professional coaches and engage in league play within our recreational setup, all within a constructive and encouraging atmosphere. Evaluation is a prerequisite for enrollment in the Junior program.

Expectations

In our Junior Academy program, we hold a set of expectations designed to foster a positive and enriching experience for every young player. First and foremost, our emphasis is on learning and skill development, encouraging each child to explore and enhance their soccer abilities in a supportive environment.

We prioritize the element of fun, aiming to instill a love for the game that will stay with them throughout their journey. Alongside this, we expect participants to pay attention during training sessions, fostering a focused and engaged mindset. Respecting others, both teammates and coaches, is paramount, creating an atmosphere of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

We also encourage a strong work ethic, teaching kids the value of dedication and effort in their pursuits. Punctuality is essential, instilling the importance of showing up on time to foster a sense of responsibility and commitment.

Through these expectations, we aim to cultivate not just soccer skills but also fundamental life values that will endure beyond the soccer field.
