Learn to Play -- Develop Skills -- Build Character

The Academy is for players who are committed to maximizing their potential as soccer players in a more structured training environment than our recreational program. We are one of the original members of the Lousiana Soccer Academy Program, and we are serious about player development.

Pictire of Academy Players

1. Learn to play the game - by developing game intelligence & understanding

2. Develop the required skills - through training in ball mastery & physical movement

3. Build the character needed - such as positivity, confidence, and perseverance

Academy is open to all players in the 9U-10U age groups (players born in 2014 and 2015).

While the program is open to anyone, it is specifically intended for players that want to commit to training and developing their individual soccer skills.

Academy slots are limited to the max capacity the staff can properly train. Players will be accepted into the program in the order of registration. Residents of Rec District 14 have priority for entry into the program.

Academy players are not placed on "teams" in the traditional manner. Instead they are grouped into player "pools" that are normally seperated by age and gender. All players train with their pool. For games, the players of the pool are split into teams. Teams typically change from week to week.

Throughout training, we focus on individual player development, not team success.

All Academy pools are led by licensed head coaches. Additionally, players receive ball mastery training with dedicated technical trainers.

9U Program

Our 9U Academy Program is a hybrid program in combination with our 9U-10U Recreational Program. Players practice once per week with their Rec teams, and once per week with their Academy pools. They play games on Saturdays with their Rec teams, and occasional additional games on Sundays with their Academy pools. They also have a few weeks of dedicated Academy sessions before the Rec season begins and after the Rec season ends.

10U Program

Our 10U Academy Program is dedicated Academy (not a Rec hybrid). Players practice with their pools twice per week and play games on weekends.

Game Schedules

Academy teams play in academy leagues and individual games with other teams, inside and outside the club, as needed to meet training objectives. Academy teams play in local tournaments and may travel regionally (within 150 miles) for tournaments or games.

Fees cover the seasonal year (both the Fall and Spring seasons).

Includes Soccer Bag

Team Fees

Estimate: $100

Possible Min: $0

Teams usually cover this fee fully through sponsor donations and fundraising, so often this is actually $0. We ask our parents to solicit corporate sponsors to offset these costs. In any case, parents need to be prepared to pay some amount below this to cover any fundraising shortfalls. This money covers jamborees/tournaments, referees, and other misc expenses

The first step is to attend the Academy pre-season information meeting. This is an opportunity to learn more about details of the program. Further instructions on registering for the program are provided at the information meeting.
