WCSA YOUTH ACADEMY
WCSA Youth Academy is for players in the U8-U12 age groups and is the next step in the foundational development of the individual soccer player after the Junior Academy. Players are evaluated prior to the start of the seasonal year in late May, early June and placed on a developmentally appropriate team with other players of similar ability. Each team in our Youth Academy is professionally coached by our licensed soccer staff in a fun, competitive, safe environment. The goal of the Youth Academy is continue to foster a love of the game, and build on the foundational skills learned in the Junior Academy. The coaches in our Youth Academy follow a specific curriculum that ensures that each player that goes through our Youth Academy learns the foundational skills needed as they progress to our 11v11 programs at U13. We have a player centered curriculum that focuses on the individual development needs of the player, within the team environment. We teach the skills needed to play a style that values keeping the ball, and playing with skill, rather than just speed and athleticism.
