WCSA Youth Academy Program is for players in the U8-U14 age groups and is the next step in the foundational development of the individual soccer player after Junior Academy. Players are evaluated prior to the start of the seasonal year and placed on a developmentally appropriate team with other players of similar ability. Each team in our Youth Academy Program is professionally coached by our licensed soccer staff in a fun, competitive and safe environment. The goal of the Youth Academy is to promote a continuous love for the game and build on foundational skills learned each season.
The coaches in our Youth Academy follow a specific curriculum to ensure that each player learns the foundational skills required for progression through 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 tactical play. We have a player-centered curriculum that focuses on the individual developmental needs of the player while in a team environment. We teach skills required to play a style of soccer that promotes the value of possession and skill over mere speed and athleticism.
