2017 GSA Fall Academy

Registration is now open for GSA’s Academy soccer program! The Academy is for both boys and girls in the U6 thru U12 age groups.   The Academy bridges the gap between GSA’s YSI@GSA Recreational program and GSA’s Competitive program. We recognize that there are many talented and enthusiastic players looking for a more focused environment in which to grow their skills.  The Academy program provides additional challenges in a more structured soccer format and is intended for participants who possess good basic soccer skills and a desire to excel. Players in this program are exposed to a more challenging and competitive environment than GSA’s YSI@GSA Recreation program. The primary focus is on developing the correct technical and basic tactical elements that are needed to graduate into the U9-U12 GSA Competitive program.

As we look ahead to the upcoming Academy soccer season, we have been busy working behind the scenes to provide the best possible soccer experience for both you and your children. Highlights for the upcoming season include:

1.  Providing the kids a positive learning environment, with a focus on promoting their physical development, their love of the game and having fun!

2. Players are trained twice a week by the GSA Academy Coaches in a structured age-appropriate program.

3. Practice will include technical training to learn skills and gain confidence with the ball.

4. Coaches will be using a set curriculum developed by GSA’s Academy Directors.

5. Team are divided as evenly as possible to try to ensure a fair, competitive environment.

6. Specific goalkeeper training to help those interested in this position develop further.

7. Regular communication to parents to keep them informed on the Academy season.

8. Parents will receive a report card on their kid’s soccer skills and development.

9. New for this year, an extended four week enrichment program called the Advanced Academy will be offered to those who show that they’re ready.
