Jr. Academy 8U-12U

What is Jr. Academy (8U-12U)

The Jr. Academy program is designed to support players as they transition from recreation-level programs to competitive soccer. Gender-specific teams are formed through an evaluation process, with players placed on a team with players of similar ability. 8U through 12U teams practice two times a week, with 8U playing 4v4, 9U-10U playing 7v7 and 11U-12U playing 9v9 small-sided games. These small-sided games allow for more touches on the ball, involving all the players on the field.  Games are on Sundays in Greenville and Anderson against teams from across the upstate as well as teams from the Midlands, the Coast, Georgia, and North Carolina.

Training is the most important aspect of our Jr. Academy Program. Practices are two times per week in 1.5 hour sessions with an additional optional night of "T.A.S.K." training by CASA coaches. We believe that with the correct training, optimal growth and individual progress can be made at this age.

Technical Ability Speed and Keeper (T.A.S.K.) is a one hour technical training session that incorporates Coerver and skill moves with a concentration on passing and technical work in addition to speed, agility and finishing technique. Keeper training is also incorporated for all goal keepers in the club. 

Fall season for the Jr. Academy teams begins with a pre-season team camp at the beginning of August and practices starting a week later.  The season begins with a September tournament and league games conclude in November.  Training continues until early December as teams work towards a post-season tournament in early or mid-December.

Spring season training begins in early to mid-January and continues until mid to end of April. League games follow this schedule with breaks for an early season tournament and the Publix Palmetto Academy Cup in April.

Age Range for the Jr. Academy program is 8U-12U.  Click here for the 2022-23 age matrix to determine the age level for your player.
