U7 Junior Academy

Our Junior Academy program is for players and families who are looking for deeper soccer training experience. Junior Academy is a program that is being created to bridge the gap between Waxhaw’s Early Developmental Program (EDP) and our National Youth Academy (USYS) program.

Players will be exposed to a format of training that we use in our current Youth Academy (United States Soccer Federation and NCYSA curriculum). Coaching methodology will emphasize individual technical training and team-based skills training using small-sided games to provide an inspiring and fun environment. We are looking to mold passionate, confident, and skillful players, while also allowing them the freedom and creativity to learn the game by playing the game.

What the program offers:

  • USSF Licensed Coaching
  • Training Sessions twice a week with a pool of like-minded players, similar skill sets, and complimentary athletic ability (60 minutes each)
  • A progressive weekly plan that covers the entire season, where players have weekly topics that build on each other as the season matures.
  • Games against teams within our club and Junior Academy programs in the Charlotte area 
**Games against other Junior Academies are not guaranteed, specifically when playing smaller clubs seeing as they may not have these special programs due to club size.**

Eligibility

  • Players must be born in 2018 for the 2024/2025 season
  • Players must register and attend evaluations (April 2024; $25/Fee)
  • Practices are only 1 hour compared to 1 hour and 15 minutes
  • Players purchase their own training and game kit.

Tuition Fees

  • Full Year U7 Junior Academy - $700 + Team Fees, Uniforms, etc.

U8-U10 national youth Academy

Our Academy program is a player development program for committed young soccer players looking to advance to the next level of competitive play. At this level, we focus on individual player development with emphasis on technical skills and tactical knowledge. All players rotate positions and learn skills associated with these positions. Academy offers a positive, engaging, and rewarding experience that is not overtly focused on results (wins vs. losses). The idea is that if we focus on developing the player and putting them in the best training situations with our best coaches, for a faster rate of growth within the game.

Players will be exposed to a format of training that we use in our current Youth Academy (United States Soccer Federation and NCYSA curriculum). Coaching methodology will emphasize individual technical training and team-based skills training using small-sided games to provide an inspiring and fun environment. We are looking to mold passionate, confident, and skillful players, while also allowing them the freedom and creativity to learn the game by playing the game.

This program structure is endorsed by the US Youth Soccer (USYS) and the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA).
