For players born in 2013 and 2014
This program is designed for Future 7 or Future 8 players who are more experienced or are simply interested in more training/instruction. The program differs from the Futures program in the following areas:
- The Futures Academy program provides an extra day of training a week.
- The Futures Academy uses professional trainers to conduct sessions and games as opposed to a volunteer staff at the Futures program.
- The Futures Academy will play some games vs other clubs as opposed to only playing games in house.
Players will be exposed to the type of training to help accelerate their technical and tactical development to continue to take their game to the next level. Players are maintained in training groups and play non-results oriented games. Players will also have the chance to represent the Club when playing neighboring clubs. The Futures Academy allows players to participate on a season-to-season basis, permitting players to register for one season without committing to a full year.
Age groups are based on USYSA/EPYSA ranges for birthdays between the following dates:
Future 7’s - Boys & Girls: 01/01/2014 - 12/31/2014
Future 8’s - Boys & Girls: 01/01/2013 - 12/31/2013
