Academy Program | U9 - U10
Coaches are often parent volunteers and are required to have a “Y1” license. Coaches at this age level continue to work with experienced professional club coaches to build on the fundamental skills developed at U7/U8.
Advanced ball control using all parts of your body is added while enhancing footwork. Player movement, spacing, and advanced passing and shooting techniques are introduced. The practices continue to include the entire age level to allow friends to continue to spend practices and the majority of their time playing soccer, together and having fun.
The Academy Program often includes more intense and frequent soccer training, more challenging league play, tournament, and indoor games. Season schedules are customized each year for the group.
Depending on age group size, there are often U9/U10 Recreational teams that we will field if your child is not interested in the Academy Program.
Teams practice once or twice per week and play about eight weekly games during the fall and spring seasons.
Practices are held at various local Germantown soccer fields. 7v7 league games on weekends provide an environment that gets all kids soccer opportunities and encourages many touches on the ball.
There are tournament opportunities that have many teams and have 3 to 4 games in the same place on a weekend. There are also indoor opportunities during the winter that allow the kids to experience playing on an indoor turf field.
