Are you ready to take your child’s soccer skills to the next level? Look no further! We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-new Developmental Academy League, an exciting program designed to promote player development and foster competitive play for young soccer enthusiasts.

Program Overview:

Our Developmental Academy League is open to players born between 2017 and 2008, catering to a wide range of age groups and skill levels. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to grow and excel in the sport they love, which is why we have designed this comprehensive program to provide two weeks of intensive training and assessments.

Player Draft and Competitive Play:

Following the training and assessment period, we will conduct a player draft to ensure the formation of balanced and competitive teams. This process allows us to create a dynamic playing environment where players can showcase their skills, learn from each other, and grow together. By fostering healthy competition, we aim to bring out the best in each participant and encourage them to reach new heights in their soccer journey.

In-season Season:

Once the player draft is complete, the Developmental Academy League will kick off with an action-packed five season. Each team will engage in thrilling matches, providing ample opportunities for players to apply their newly acquired skills, develop strategic thinking, and experience the excitement of team play. Our coaches and dedicated staff will be present throughout the season, guiding and supporting the young athletes every step of the way.  Weekday team training will be provided to ensure growth throughout the season.

End-of-Year Tournament:

As the season draws to a close, we will conclude the Developmental Academy League with an exhilarating end-of-the-year tournament. This showcase event, March 2 or 3, will bring together all teams in the league for a thrilling display of talent, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Players will have the chance to compete at their best, demonstrate their progress, and leave a lasting impression on the field.  Each Team will get a minimum of three games at the tournament, games 6-8 for the season.  

Why Choose the Developmental Academy League?

– Player Development: Our program is specifically designed to nurture each player’s individual growth, focusing on technical skills, tactical awareness, and overall soccer IQ.
