The Youth Academy program is a culmination of experiences gained over years of training and developing some of the best players in Highlands County. Our philosophy is to provide all participating players with a safe, positive, and fun learning environment with an emphasis on the fundamental aspects of the game. It is our belief that fun and enjoyment of the game remains the most important element for success. The content and delivery of the youth academy training curriculum has been developed considering the developmental age of the participants. The players are challenged with achievable goals throughout the program to promote self-esteem and encourage creativity with freedom to experience the fun and enjoyment of the beautiful game.
As a club we take pride in developing some of the most skilled players around. We understand that these young players are the future of our club and consequently, the Youth Academy strives to aide each and every player that attends in their development. Every year our competitive teams have experienced major success at the state, regional and national levels. In addition, our players individually have gone on to play at the collegiate and professional level both in the US and abroad. We are committed to seeing this success continue and grow with even more players benefiting from our Youth Academy program.
Our program focuses on U6-18 for our youth players.
