Is your child always looking to do more soccer? Are they ready to be challenged on the pitch, to take it up a notch?
We have the solution.
AFC Union Soccer Club offers a Pre-Academy program for U6 & U7 players. The Pre-Academy program provides the player who wants more, the opportunity to get more.
Each team in the Pre-Academy program has a coach that has been selected and screened by the AFC Union Pre-Academy director. The coaches are required to hold a coaching license as well as encouraged to attend additional coaching clinics and advance in the level of the coaching license they hold. In addition to the team coach, AFC Union licensed professional trainers work with and alongside the team coach.
The Pre-Academy trainings are run in an academy setting (multiple teams training together) following a professional training curriculum that has been created for our Pre-Academy program. The academy approach to training is used by the best clubs world wide because of its effectiveness in developing players.
Players in the Pre-Academy have two 1 hour-long training sessions a week.
Racine Area training sessions will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at SCORe Soccer Complex.
Your registration also includes 3 tournaments for your Pre-Academy player to participate in.
There will be optional winter opportunities to involve your child in as well, ranging from training, leagues, and tournaments, and that'll be provided at the interest of the players and collective group. NOTE - Each child's registration already includes 10 weeks of additional winter training without any additional payment.
If your player loves soccer and is craving for more, we highly suggest the AFC Union Pre-Academy program. The level of training and the additional opportunities that are provided will help them develop into the best player they can be. And if your player is interested in moving into club soccer when they are older, the Pre-Academy program is a great stepping stone into the club soccer/select soccer world, providing them with a good foundation and an advantage for when they do.
You will select your community program of choice - Racine or Kenosha - during the registration process.
AFC Union's U6/U7 Pre-Academy Program is an Open Registration Program. There are no tryouts! Any player that has the desire and the love of the game and wants to participate in the AFC Union Pre-Academy program is welcome to join!
