The Elite Academy is designed to keep players training at the highest possible level and serves as a bridge between our Academy and Premier programs.
We will be continuing our academy style training where the focus is strictly on individual skill development while introducing a premier team environment, having a head coach that trains the team and who also travels around the city with the team to play teams from other clubs within the North Florida Youth Soccer League.
In addition to the training that the players receive with their head coach, we will also be adding an after school session and a group training session.
Elite Academy Program Leagues
Florida Club Development League
Florida Club Development League is a division based league for U9-U12 boys and girls.
After School Training
The after school training will take place at 3:30 pm on Tuesdays with a professional coach. The session will focus on technical development in a functional environment. The session will run on topic with the U11 curriculum, working on things such as advanced attacking and defending skills, passing and receiving, heading, striking and serving with proper technique and textures, finishing, etc. there will also be smart sessions within our small sided environment in an effort to introduce tactical awareness and create smarter soccer players.
Group Training Session
The group training session will be a more advanced version of the U10 group training. The teams will follow a 10 week curriculum working in blocks of 2-3 weeks on a variation of technical and tactical topics. There will be multiple coaches present in order to allow players to understand different coaching styles; a key part of their development.

This year long program emphasizes technical skills and tactical knowledge for players in preparation for the Elite Academy and Premier level.

Some topics covered throughout the season within our curriculum include: 1v1 attacking and defending, ball mastery, movement with and without the ball and back to pressure activities.
