Youth Academy

 

Programs

  • Youth Academy (Team Program) – U7- U10
  • Mini Spurs Program – U5 - U6




Youth Academy (Team Program) 

The Academy Program is for U7 - U10 boys and girls and is an excellent way to prepare players for the competitive soccer programs. Focused completely on skill development and small sided play, it is ideal for the young player who is taking particular interest in the sport of soccer and appears to be ready for a higher level of training as well as increased expectations.

 

Joining a Team

Players interested in the Academy Program must participate in an Academy Player Assessment.  This is not a "tryout" process resulting in a player being cut.  Rather, it is an opportunity for players, parents, and coaches to assess the suitability of the program to the player's stage of development and to determine if Academy placement is suitable. Typically the assessments are in May of each year, however it is sometimes possible to be assessed during a different time.

 

 

Training

Academy players train twice a week for 75 minutes per session, with emphasis on technical and tactical skills. Players in the Youth Academy will receive advanced training from our professional staff.  The program will emphasize the development of players technically (skills), tactically (decision-making), physically (fitness) and psychologically (mental toughness).

 

 

Games

Academy players will play a variety of different games and competitions against other youth academy teams on a regular basis throughout the season. Academy games are played in a "play-a-round" format.  Home games are played at the Jordan Soccer Complex.  The teams will also travel to other local soccer associations (Wilson, Southern Pines, Greenville, Fuquay Varina, Sanford, New Bern and Wilmington) to play games. At the conclusion of the Academy season in the Fall and Spring, the Academy teams usually participate in the Academy Showcase.  The Academy Showcase is a festival that all of the Academy teams across NC participate in.  The Academy Showcase does require overnight lodging.  Academy teams may also participate in tournaments.
