The Soccer Academy offers 2 programs; academy teams and the 3 v. 3 program, for ages 5-14. It is offered for four sessions during the year: outdoors during the Spring and Fall, as well as indoors for
Fall/Winter. The philosophy of the Academy is to provide an opportunity for participants to play soccer and receive coaching through practices and
games. Soccer First will take individual registrations, create the teams,
and provide the instruction at our facility.
- Soccer Academy teams will be formed from individual registrations. Teams will be entered into the Soccer First indoor league. They will play 9 league games and will practice 5 times. The teams will play in competitive games but the philosophy is for the participants to learn through playing and to have fun. The fall indoor session will begin November 1 and will run until January.
- The 3 v. 3 program is set up in a class/training format. We will meet 9 times, once a week for an hour. We will typically spend 30 minutes training and 30 minutes playing in a 3 v. 3 format (2 v. 2, 3 v. 3, 4 v. 4, depending on the number of participants). Teams will be
created each week or in each class to create fair competition and
enhance learning. Next session will begin November 8.
In the 3 vs. 3 format, players will have more time on the
ball, with less players on the field than a regular game, and the focus will be on practice
and learning rather than competition. Scores and standings will not be
Training and games will be held at Soccer First.
The 3 vs. 3 training will primarily meet on the weekends. We
will designate days and times and you can sign up for those. Classes
are usually offered on Saturdays at 2pm and 3pm, Sundays at 3pm and 4pm,
and will also be offered on some weekday evenings. You can choose the class time in the drop down menu on the registration page.
The Soccer Academy and 3 v 3 league fee of $175 per player includes administration by Soccer
First, practice rentals and coaching fees.
