About the Academy
We created the Academy Program to better meet the needs of players in transition between our In House and Traveling Programs. This program is designed specifically to bridge this transition. Players at this age benefit most from opportunities that build their technical ability.
- The Academy program is led by veteran coach Gabe Kortuem.
- These sessions are designed to provide players with significant time with the ball, under the supervision of skilled coaches who are providing feedback and guidance in the moment on technical skills and team play.
- Academy sessions will also be supplemented with scrimmages and or games with nearby community teams ("friendlies").
- We offer two separate sessions each year: Spring/Summer and Fall.
