Youth Development Academy U7–U8

Program Description

This is a 1 hour, 2 days a week program, starting in March and ending in November. The program is split into two four month sessions with a one-month break in July. Our Youth Development Academy (YDA) is the first opportunity to play competitive soccer in Elk Grove.

This program is available to all players born in 2010/2011. In the first four months, the kids will be a part of a true academy. The coaches will group train the kids and teach them all the technical skills they will need to progress as a soccer player. Within this period the goal is to teach the kids our soccer culture, and prepare them for the second half of the season. We will take part in one or two Play dates in the first half of the season. The second half of the season, the group will be rostered and assigned a permanent coach. The teams will then be placed in the Fall League, and we will end the season with a play date or a tournament (Thanksgiving 6v6 Shootout).

Your monthly fee covers the following: Training sessions and games (if applicable).
