Player Requirements

The United Futbol Academy Future Academy Program is for players who were born in 2010 and 2011.

Candidates for the Future Academy program will exhibit the following:

·       Ability to focus at training and games.

·       Self-motivated with a desire to be the best.

·       Enjoys dribbling the ball and does not just kick the ball away.

·       Good athletic ability including agility, coordination and speed.

Ideally, players should be recommended for the program by their current coach, the Recreational Director or one of United FA’s professional staff. Players should have a minimum of 1 year playing in a recreational program. Parents who feel their players have the above qualities and have not been identified will have the opportunity to have their player assessed for placement.

Program Information

Participation Fee

The participation fee will be $500.00 for the combined Fall and Spring seasons. Parents and players are committing to the program for 1 year (Fall/Spring). This price includes the uniform kit, tournament entry, Georgia Soccer registration and insurance, referee fees, training fees, field use and league administration.

Uniforms

Uniforms will consist of 2 game jerseys, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of socks and 1 training shirt. 

Training

Professional trainer and qualified volunteer coach (parent). Training will be twice a week for 1.5 hours per session. Training will be at the park where the team is based. Training sessions will be conducted by a nationally-licensed trainer with a focus on ball mastery, developing 1v1 skills (primarily), and then progressing to 2v1, 2v2 skills, etc. Our goal is to maintain a ratio of 1 trainer to every 9-11 players.

Games

Most games are on Saturday's. Saturday games may start anytime from 9:00am-5:00pm. The game format will be 7v7. The team will play in the U10 Rec League. Games may be at Rock Creek Park, Yahoola Creek Park, Roper Park, Fannin Park or Foster Park.

Additional U8 games may be scheduled against other Branches within UFA. We may play in the U8 bracket of the UFA Fall Classic Tournament in November and the Extreme Cup in May. The fees for tournament participation are included in the tuition.

There will be a 5-day, 90 minute per day, team camp for all players July 24th through July 28th. The time depends upon field availability and coaching commitments. The trainer will inform you of the time in early July. The participation fee includes team camp, so seperate registration is not required.

Practices will begin at the same time as the Academy teams, early August in the Fall and early February in the Spring.
