JR ACADEMY SOCCER PROGRAM

OVERVIEW

PVSC is proud to offer our Jr. Academy training program for the 2021 FALL Season for players born between 2015-2012 (U7-U10). Our Jr. Academy program is a great fit for young players and their families who are showing a greater interest in a structured training atmosphere. Our Jr Academy players will also be on a Developmental team where they will participate in all the scheduled weekly practices and games. There will be a limited number of players allowed to participate in the Jr Academy program. Players will be considered based on when they register, so register early.

 

CURRICULUM

The Jr Academy curriculum is created to bridge the gap between our recreational soccer and the competitive soccer program. These high-level training sessions will be held exclusively by our certified coaching staff with the focus on player development. The emphasis in these hour-long practices will be on technical skills like ball control, progression on passing, moving the ball up the field, and finishing the play. The training will also include small-sided games allowing the players to have more touches on the ball and promoting problem-solving in-game situations.

PRACTICE

Jr Academy players will follow their Developmental team practice on their scheduled day during the week. The exclusive Jr Academy practices will be held on Thursday evenings. Practices will start two weeks after the season begins.

EQUIPMENT

Please make sure your child has water, shin guards, a ball, and their Jr Academy shirt. Players will receive their shirt on or before the first JA practice.

 

WEATHER

We will train in the rain if the fields are not closed. Please plan on coming unless you hear from PVSC that training at Davis Park has been canceled.

ADD-ON COST

$99 per player

Please note: Your child must already be enrolled in the developmental soccer program in order for them to participate in the Jr Academy.

If you are not sure if your son or daughter is ready for the Jr. Academy, please speak to one of our club coaches during one of the regular practice sessions for an evaluation.
