The Academy Soccer Program participates in the Georgia Youth Soccer Association’s U9, U10, U11, and U12 Developmental Program (The Academy). The goal of this program is to implement the Georgia State Soccer Association’s and the United States Soccer Federation’s guideline and recommendations for youth player development. Player pools will be formed at each of these age groups, separating the boys and the girls. This program is an alternative to the traditional select team and higher level of competitive play. Our developmental program is structured to provide maximum instruction for each and every player, preparing him or her to compete at their highest level of play. Nationally and State certified coaches will emphasize development of ability on the ball and ball control, including basic individual skills: footwork, passing, defending tactics, dribbling and shooting. The training players will receive is designed to keep every player active with the ball at all possible times.
