Program Description

The Jr Academy is the first stepping stone towards our academy programs and our "Talented player pathway".  The program is for the most focused, and dedicated players in our U5-U8 programs, and prepares players for the U9 Academy programs and beyond.

Players will work with some our club's most qualified coaches, and can expect to regularly work through small sided games, technical exercises (ball mastery), physical literacy (strength, speed, coordination, balance, etc), and 1v1 exercises.

Jr Academy players are also heavily encouraged to join the Futsal league, which they can join for 50% of the regular cost.
