Where/When are practices/games?
Practices are Fridays from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at Morley Park in Rocky River. Game days are Sundays at either Morley or Linden Park in Rocky River.
What is the Academy Program?
The Academy is a young player's introduction to soccer. Players learn the basic skills of the game through fun yet challenging activities under the guidance of professional coaches.
What is the different between Academy and other programs?
Academy is player-centered. The "game" is the main teacher, not coaches. The aim is to develop self-motivated players who can solve "soccer problems" on their own.
Is the U8 Academy the right choice?
The U8 Academy is for boys and girls who intend to play competitive soccer. Players must be able to follow instructions, and stay engaged in activities. Players who are "not ready" will receive a refund, and will be invited to try again the next season.
