TCSA Academy provides a higher level of instruction for boys and girls from ages 5-9 years old. This is a great compliment to our recreation program and gives your son or daughter a chance to be trained by professional coaches and play with other players that are more serious about soccer and want to take their game to the next level. It is also a great way to prepare your child for travel soccer.
Players in the Academy will be driven to technically develop and succeed with a commitment to practice and play hard. Training will address technical, tactical, physical and psychological components for players 6-9 years old. Self-discipline, sportsmanship and teamwork will also be emphasized. Most importantly when planning a session, we aim to ensure that the practices are fun and match related. Participation in Academy gives players the tools to make a smooth transition to the Classic or Premier programs.
The Academy consists of one practice and one game each week. There are four sessions offered: Fall, Winter I, Winter II and Spring. Each session meets for 8-10 weeks. Fall and Spring sessions are held at Harvest Hills Park in St. Charles; Winter sessions are held at the TCSA Indoor Facility.
