Designed for players 8 & 9 years old, the goal of the u9 Junior Academy is to help teach young players basic soccer skills in an environment that is conducive to learning. We refer to this age group as the “Learning group”, where a competitive but positive and fun environment will begin developing their knowledge of the game. Players in the Junior Academy receive professional training in age-appropriate groups with an emphasis on technical skill development, physical development and cognitive learning.
Junior Academy players participate in 2 training sessions per week during the fall, winter, and spring seasons. Training sessions include technical drills improving individual skills and tactics allowing them to learn the game.
