1. How many days does the U8 Academy train and play?
The U8 Academy is a more intensive program where players practice 2 times per week and play in a league on the weekends. This is designed for all levels of players whether new to the game or players who have been playing soccer for 1-2 years and want to play more than just once per week. Players from this program will tryout for the rising U9 travel team the following year.
2. Do players have to tryout to make the U8 Academy?
No. All players can participate in the U8 Academy. We create multiple teams in this age group so players can enjoy the game of soccer.
As a parent you need to ask yourself: Does my child enjoy and want to play soccer more than 1 night a week? Does my child want to play in competitve games on the weekend? Is my child eager to learn and develop more skills? If you answered yes, then the U8 Academy is the correct choice for your child.
