Spring 2023 Academy Program

NEW THIS SEASON: THE $300 REGISTRATION FEE INCLUDES ONE TOURNAMENT FEE FOR ACADEMY PLAYERS

The Academy Program is only for experienced players who have attended evaluations and have received an invitation from an Academy Coach to join. Please contact Caitlyn Murray ([email protected]) if you have any questions. 

Preliminary details about the upcoming season are outlined below.

TYSA's U10 Academy Program:
The Academy program is designed to help 10U players improve their technical soccer skills which they will need to play at a higher level, as well as their love for the game. Our dedicated coaching staff follows a curriculum that provides players with high-quality instruction and age-appropriate activities which creates a fun learning environment. The majority of the players that enter the Academy during their 10U years move on to play competitive (Classic) soccer once they graduate the Academy program. The Academy program is all about development; we are not concerned with wins/loses or goals given or scored. Our goal is to give each academy player the tools they need to reach a higher level in their own soccer skill development. A pool-style training and game system is utilized to create the best possible environment for player development. This allows for players of similar abilities to train and play together consistently.

TYSA's U12 Academy Program:
To continue the development from the U10 Academy program, U12 players will continue to build on the the skills they have developed an begin to explore the game as a whole with established roles and responsibilities for positioning, playing together as one unit, and expanding vision and soccer IQ. These players will be readying themselves for higher competition in either a Classic team and/or a competitive middle school environment. 

Game Locations:
Games for the U10/U12 Academy program are primarily on Saturday/Sunday mornings and incorporate playing within TYSA as well as competing with other clubs in the area during the season. Academy teams will travel either to Asheville, NC, Greer, SC, or other regional locations decided by the Academy coaches, for games to play competitive Academy teams from other local youth soccer organizations (HFC, CESA & other regional clubs). The registration fee also includes at least one tournament, dates and location TBD. This schedule will be communicated prior to the season.

Placement Evaluations: 
All players interested in participating in the TYSA Academy program must be evaluated. The main placement evaluation is usually held in May each year for the upcoming fall season (August-October), and in November for the upcoming spring season (February-May).

Pricing:
In order to continue to provide a quality and rigorous program for our Academy players, TYSA is planning for and considering utilizing resources beyond our present volunteer coaching staff. These opportunities are currently being evaluated, and a program price will be announced to players accepted on the team before registration. The current registration price is $300 per player for the season and includes practices, regular "season" games and pricing for one tournament. This price does not include the uniform kit (approx. $80) and would not include fees for any second or additional tournament your Academy coach may pursue. This pricing is less expensive than other Academy program fees in our surrounding area. Scholarships are given based on need and availability of funds. 

Commitment:
We ask that your child attend as many practices and games as possible. We understand that sometimes a player (or coach) may be sick, injured, or have a family/school obligation that keeps them from attending a game or practice. Once we have the game schedule set, please let us know of any known absence your child might have so that we can attempt to make arrangements to find a substitute player to cover for them. The Academy program also asks that each child bring a level of focus, determination, and maturity that is at a higher level than the TYSA Recreational program. Your child was placed into the Academy program because we believe they are ready and capable of doing that.

Rosters:
We will have both U10 & U12 teams. However, team placement within these age groups is not decided and is somewhat dependent on how we can schedule matches with other Clubs that have not finished forming their teams.

Equipment Required:
Size 4 ball
Shin Guards
Soccer socks to cover shin guards
Appropriate shirt and shorts/tights

Training:                                                                                        
Training will be offered twice per week on days decided by your team's coach. Your coach may schedule additional optional training sessions. The practice schedule will be communicated by coaches prior to the season.

Communication:
An email will be sent out soon with registration information followed by a link for ordering uniform kits. We have been using TeamSnap, a free-to-you app for scheduling and communication. Look for a separate email coming soon for an invite for that.

Parent Engagement:
At the Academy level, we love to see parents encouraging their child to get soccer touches at home and through watching live or televised soccer games. Developing a passion and understanding for the game helps the boys excel and will help them enjoy their experience even more. There will be opportunities for parents to bring healthy snacks (e.g., oranges, fruit, healthy energy bars, etc.) and drinks to games and we always appreciate parent’s support.
