The CUSC year-round Academy program is absolutely one of a kind in this region. Players train with our professional coaching staff, on a full year schedule modeled after European professional academies. Training is in the late afternoons, directly after school, with bus transportation available for players in the area. Players go from school to training every weeknight, and are done training in time to be picked up at 5:30pm. As such, they train more than any other player in the region, while still leaving ample time in their evenings to spend with family, on homework, and other interests.
Morning Strength and Mobility sessions held on Friday mornings at Bob MacQuarrie or Tuesday mornings at Francois Dupuis.
Once weekly Keeper Training for keepers.
* Please note that keepers in the Year Round Academy (U13+) need not register for this program, as their keeper training will be encompassed in their regular program.
Competitive players aged U17+ (2002 or older) may also be interested in our competitive adult programs. For details on these programs see our Winter Adult Competitive Soccer programs.
