Junior Academy

Junior Academy Program

Academy programs seek to improve individual player development, satisfaction, and retention, and to build a less pressured youth soccer environment for coaches, adult spectators, and match officials. The TBU Junior Academy develops individual skills and an understanding of the team game in an enjoyable format.

Program Mission:

For age groups U7 through U10, the mission of the TBU Junior Academy is to provide the best possible coaching and instruction for our young players to ensure proper development of individual skill and technique and to introduce the team concepts involved in the game. The Academy’s experienced coaching staff emphasizes technical, tactical, and physical development while encouraging individual creativity and expression.

Why choose the TBU Junior Academy?

Our experienced staff possesses extensive soccer knowledge, coaching, and playing experience with the highest emphasis placed on player development. Technique & skill is emphasized with the structure (but not the content) of our Academy training sessions similar to that of our older competitive athletes.

The main component of the Academy sessions will emphasize technical training. However, at these ages, a child’s capacity to solve problems increases significantly. Players will begin working on self-solving basic, dynamic tactical scenarios through small-sided games, in addition to improving his/her individual skills and technique.
