Is my kid too young for “travel soccer”

  • Yes. And that is why Academy Juniors is not a travel soccer program.

  • Academy Juniors is a “bridge program” between our rec program and our travel.

    • We aim to keep it fun and educational!

    • We will let the kids be kids but also begin to teach them.

    • We will work on athletic movements, ball mastery and being a part of a team.

    • Playing time will be equal and players will play/learn all positions.
