Soccer First Soccer Academy

The Soccer Academy offers two different programs; Academy teams and the 3 v. 3 program, for ages 5-16.

  • Soccer Academy teams participate in the indoor soccer leagues. Soccer First will take individual registrations, create the teams, and provide the instruction at our facility.
  • Teams will play 9 league games and will practice 5 times during the session.
  • The philosophy of the Academy is to provide an opportunity for participants to play soccer and receive coaching through practices and games.
  • The focus of the Soccer Academy is on learning and fun, but the teams will play in leagues and games will be competitive.
If you are new to soccer the 3 v. 3 program is a good way to start.
  • 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).
  • The 3 vs. 3 format will give players more time on the ball, with less players on the field than a regular game, than a regular game.
  • The focus will be on practice and learning rather than competition. Scores and standings will not be recorded.
  • Training and games will be held at Soccer First.
  • 3 v. 3 classes are usually offered on Saturdays at 1pm (ages 5-7) and 2pm ages (8-10), Sundays at 3pm (ages 5-7 & 8-10), 4pm (ages 11-14 and ages 14-16), and 6pm (ages 7-10) and Tuesdays at 5:30pm (ages 7-10).
  • The next session will begin October 31.

The Soccer Academy and 3 v 3 league fee of $175 per player includes administration by Soccer First, practice rentals and coaching fees.
