The United Futbol Academy Future Academy Program is for players who were born in 2016 and 2017.
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.
The participation fee will be $650.00 for the combined Fall and Spring seasons. Parents and players are committing to the program for 1 year (Fall/Spring). This price includes the Governing Body Soccer registration and insurance, referee fees, training fees, field use and league administration.
Uniforms will consist of 2 game jerseys, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of socks and 1 training shirt (approximate cost is $65, plus tax and shipping).
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 qualified UFA coach 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.
The new game day experience could include participating in the Forsyth Friday FA games and also playing FA teams from other locations on Saturdays or Sundays. The program will include the 2 practice nights, run by a professional coach.
The Mountains FA will continue to play in the U8 bracket of the UFA Fall Classic Tournament in November and the Extreme Cup in May.
Practices will begin at the same time as the Academy teams, early August in the Fall and early February in the Spring.
