Youth Academy Program (Spring 2020)

PHILOSOPHY

The Galaxy Soccer Club’s Youth Academy Program is a curriculum-based development program for boys and girls born in 2010, 2011, and 2012.  Our program focuses on each individual player’s development, not the potential achievements of a team. 

 

GOALS

  • To emphasize player development over team development and focus on the technical development of each child without the pressures of short-term wins/losses/results.

  • To create a fun and dynamic atmosphere for players and foster a love of the game.

  • To help educate parents on how to understand the sport and their supporting role in their child's development.

  • To prepare younger players for the eventual transition into competitive Select soccer.

  • To offer a program that will follow the recommendations and guidelines from US Youth Soccer (USYS) and the US Soccer Federation (USSF) for small-sided play.
