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.
For boys and girls born in 2011 & 2010, and also open for those 2012 players who want more of a challenge than In-house. 2009 players are also eligible if they weren't placed on a Traveling team.

In-house / Academy Director
In-house U8 (2012 birth year) players have the option to participate in In-house or join Academy for a more intensive soccer experience.
Academy players are trained as a training class with club coaches, rather than on teams. If you would like to join the U8 Academy, please register your player into the Academy registration which you will find on the Academy tab of our website.
If you have questions, please contact Coach Gabe at firstname.lastname@example.org
