(Players born in 2014 or 2015 for 2022-23 season)
The CMS U8 Academy is designed to further develop a young soccer player's skill and confidence with a soccer ball. The Academy focuses on the individual skills learned in the U7 Academy as well as the player's role in team concepts. Our licensed soccer trainers instruct players in the proper methods of dribbling, receiving, passing and basic technical skills. The training sessions are age-specific to the U8 player, ensuring growth and development while making the learning process fun.
This program will train through the summer, fall and spring beginning the Monday after the July 4th holiday. Summer training will be on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm. Training during the fall and spring will be held twice a week (taking holidays off), once as an Academy on Mondays from 6:30-7:30pm, and once a week with the player's team comprised of other Academy players. The Academy Team training will be determined by the Academy Coach, but will be on either Wednesday or Thursday evening. There will be 8 games each season.
The fee for the U8 Academy is $410 for the year. This includes approximately 60 training sessions, an Academy uniform and the recreation player league fees.
Registration will be limited to the first 96 participants so don't wait to register.
