The Academy Program

The Academy Program has been created 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.

This year the Academy will be led by 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. 

Academy Cancelled Thursday September 20th

Academy Training is Cancelled tonight, Thursday September 20th due to field conditions and approaching weather systems.
