Fall 2014 U8 Academy Program Identification Dates


U8 Academy

SYA Soccer’s new U8 Academy Program will start in the Fall of 2014. The Academy program is a structured and intensive system that will create an environment where players will be developed at a crucial age in the technical and tactical aspects of the modern game.  This 10 month program will follow a comprehensive training plan developed and implemented by highly qualified professional staff.  Focus and priority of the program will be on individual player development rather than team success, and will be specifically focused to increase the player’s technical and tactical skills.  The Academy players will take part in twice weekly training sessions, crossover U8 games with fellow CCL clubs and winter indoor training and league games.  This structure will bridge the gap between Recreation and Travel Soccer through United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and United States Youth Soccer (USYS) approved methodologies, and prepare the players and parents for the commitments of U9 travel soccer.

Identification dates will be held at the following times at SYA Sports Park, 6626 Bull Run Post Office Rd, Centreville, VA.

Girls 1.30pm-2.30pm and Boys 3.30pm-4.30pm.

  • May 17th
  • May 31st
  • June 7th
