All practices (Glenside) and games (Franklin) will be held at the same time and place every week. The Academy format for the 2017-2018 season will remain the same as the pooled program from last season.
Summit Soccer Club offers an Under-8 program commonly known as “The Academy” for players born in 2010 in Summit. The program consists of a one-hour and fifteen minute weekday instructional session, led by professional trainers, and a one-hour weekend game led by trainers. Games will run for 10 weeks ending in a World Cup tournament.
The Academy is designed to teach soccer techniques to children while they have fun playing the game. All players will follow the same soccer curriculum.
Saturday games are played in a 4 versus 4 format aimed at giving each child more opportunities to “touch” the ball and play a bigger role in a game.
The format for Fall 2017 and beyond will be as follows:
- Practices (Glenside)– all players in each division will train at the same time i.e. 2010 Boys (U8) will all train in one time slot. This allows for “pool training”, where players will rotate training groups weekly so they are learning from different trainers and being challenged with players of similar ability on a weekly basis.
- Games (Franklin)– all players in each division will play games at the same time. Again allowing for pools of players to play games against each other on a weekly basis. Trainers will move players around week to week to ensure games are developmental and players are getting challenged in games. Games will run for 10 weeks for U8.
- There will be one Academy uniform for all players.
Summit Soccer Club will seek the minimal assistance of parent volunteers with organizing the children on Saturdays for the small-sided games. Please indicate your willingness to assist when registering your child.
Please note that registration for the program is non-refundable.
