IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OUR 2021 SEASON!
March 27th 2021
Our Academy is a critical component of our player development pathway. We are now evaluating players for all our teams for the 2021 season. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions on team sports our 2021 program will be streamlined to meet COVID-19 guidelines. As of April 12th 2021 we are anticipating a return to individual training by mid May. Our club provides a complete pathway from U8 to the professional level. Through our partnership with Schachter Sports we have been able to implement core components used in Europe for player development.
We have structured our program to follow a year round calendar and we also periodically test our players with training and development trips to German and other parts of Europe.
U8 to U13 is an extremely critical age for player development, at these ages they develop a love for the game, take pride in their ability to manipulate the ball and learn the skills that will help them enjoy the game as they get older.
At the early ages we focus 100 percent of our effort on mastery of the ball and as our players get other we introduce age appropriate cognitive and decision making exercises.
