Boys Junior Academy Soccer Program
The sooner you start training in the right environment and as a group, the more chance you have to play on a rep team by age 8 or 9. We are not looking for the best players at this moment in time. We are here to go through a skillful process of creating gifted players and teams by age 8 or 9.
- Purpose of the Junior Academy program is to train players using a technical skill based methodology and have players demonstrate this in practice sessions and games
- Promote players from our Junior Academy to our U9 competitive boys rep team when they are of age. (Ontario soccer league play start at U9)
ACADEMY SELECTION PROCESS:
- All players are invited to the first block.
- After the first block, selection into the next Academy block will be done by invitation only.
- Players will need to demonstrate high standards in order to be selected for block 2, 3, 4.
- Primary high standards in the following areas: technical skills, understanding of the training activity, fitness / agility, focus, attentiveness and individual maturity .
