UNDER 12 OFFERINGS

Girls Jr. Academy (2008-2009 Birth Years): For girls U11-15, the Girls Jr. Academy is the perfect opportunity to fine-tune your skills in a supportive yet demanding environment. We offer a session for girls ONLY. Each of our 3 winter sessions focuses on a different topic, from passing/receiving to small-group attacking to finishing. 

1v1 Dribbling Academy (2008-2009 Birth Years): For boys & girls U11-15, the 1v1 Dribbling Academy will be offered throughout the winter months. The theme from session 1 (Nov.-Dec.) will build off each other to provide a more in-depth training focus to truly make players better and more dynamic dribblers. We believe that “dribbling” is quickly becoming a dying art of the game, and our intention is to challenge every player more. In year’s past, we only offered these sessions ONCE during the winter – BUT becoming a great dribbler with supreme ball control takes time – This is the perfect opportunity to fine-tune your skills in a supportive yet demanding environment.

The theme from session 1 (Nov.-Dec.) will build off each other to provide a more in-depth training focus to truly make players better shooters while helping them build experience and confidence in becoming better goal-scorers. Many people believe that “goal-scorers are born” and this program is committed to proving this theory wrong. In year’s past, we only offered this session ONCE during the winter – BUT building skill and confidence with scoring goal takes more than one 6-week training program. This is the perfect opportunity to fine-tune your skills in a supportive yet demanding environment. 

U12 Saturday Excellence (2008-2009 Birth Years): Our U12 Excellence Program meets once a week and has a different focus each of the three sessions. Players are pushed to continue to hone their technical skills, but now under pressure in 1v1, 2v1, and 3v2 situations.
