Academy

Program Information


The CSC U9-U10 Academy Program is designed for players who are transitioning from Recreation Soccer and The U8 Academy Center into a more challenging training environment.

The CSC U8 Academy Center is focused on introducing young players to professional coaching and technical development. The training environment is perfect for players who love the game of soccer and are interested in learning new skills under the guidance of licensed coaching staff. Players are encouraged to additionally participate in the U8 CSC Recreation Program to experience regular game play. Players can participate in single seasons to gauge interest in the Academy.

Program Goals & Mission

Player Development is the number one priority of the Academy. The long-term goal is to develop players who are capable of competing at the travel soccer level and beyond. The Academy environment is exciting and challenging, and will constantly test our players. As players mature, it is important to place them appropriately to ensure they are encouraged and pushed to achieve their own personal bests. The Academy Program continues to promote fun and fundamentals, while also demanding a strong work ethic, commitment, and passion for the game.
