Our Competitive Academy is for players age U11 – U19 looking for a competitive soccer experience.  Training is 2-3 times a week and lead by a professionally licensed coach with the main emphasis being on individual technical training.  Teams are formed by ability and compete in local and regional events.

There is a $1,500 yearly membership fee for this program, which covers the cost of your Fall & Spring League (U11-U14) or Winter League (U15-U19) registration fee, a Cup tournament (President’s Cup or Founder’s Cup) and your training costs.  If a team chooses to enter tournaments throughout the year the cost for those events will be split up between the team.  These events are generally in the $55 per player range for a registration fee, plus any travel expenses.

Team Formation
Teams will be formed based on location, East or West. Players will be placed in age group pools and evaluated over a period of time for fall team placement. This does not mean rosters will be set for the entire year. Depending on the developmental needs of a player he/she could be moved.

After rosters are formed, teams will use Team Snap as their communication platform.

Team Manager
Parent Volunteer to assist with team & club communications, assistance with player cards & rosters, assistance with collecting player documentation.

Tournaments
All Tournaments including State Cup, President’s Cup, and Summer Events must be approved by the Competitive Academy Director. This is to ensure all events outside of training & league play are developmentally appropriate for the players.

If a team is approved to play in a tournament there will be tournament fees split between the team (tournament registration, travel, food, etc.).
