Program Overview

 

 

Challenge Youth Academy Program, U8-U10:

This program is for the U8, U9 and U10 age groups and is offered twice a year (Fall and Spring). Each week offers two training sessions and weekend games. The program uses a curriculum approved by the US Soccer Federation that is based on the four pillars of the game of soccer (technical, tactical, physical, psychological) to help provide consistent, structured and goal-oriented training for all Academy members.  

Children that benefit the most from this program show an enjoyment for soccer (practices and games) and have the maturity to stay engaged for the hour and fifteen minute training sessions. Players are not required to be super athletes, but a general excitement for the game and attentiveness at the training sessions will ensure that your player gets maximum enjoyment out of the program.
