Registration Listing

Fall 2022 Boys Academy Program

The Academy Program is only for experienced players who have attended evaluations and have received an invitation from an Academy Coach to join.

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, or Greer, SC, for games to play competitive Academy teams from other local youth soccer organizations (CFC & CESA). 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 January for the upcoming spring season (starting in March-May).

Registration:
Academy players must be evaluated before registering for the season and will register for the Academy program via our website, www.tysa.us, only after receiving an invitation from TYSA for the upcoming season. 

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 registration price will not exceed $200 per player for the season. Please note: New this season, the registration fee does not include (jersey, shorts, and soccer socks). Scholarships are given based on need and availability of funds. This pricing is competitive in comparison to program fees for Academy programs in the surrounding area.

A letter from the coaches: Fall 2022 Boys Academy Season

Hello Parents,

If you are receiving an invitation to this program, your child has been invited to join the Fall 2022 TYSA Boys Academy Program. Welcome and congratulations to the boys! We are already excited about playing soccer this fall. In the essence of time, you will have two weeks to complete your registration once the invites are sent so we know whether or not we will need to hold additional evaluations to fill the roster. Please feel free to contact Brad Toms ([email protected]) or Caitlyn Murray ([email protected]) if you have any questions. Here are some preliminary details about the upcoming season. 

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.

Training                                                                                                                                                                               
Training will be offered twice per week - Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:45, location TBA. 1st training session will most likely be the last week of August with the first match as early as the second weekend in September.

Matches
Matches for fall season will be split between Asheville, NC, and Greer, SC. It is our plan right now for your player to play four games in Asheville (Saturdays only), and four games in Greer (two Sundays). More details to come about match locations and time.

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

Commitment
The TYSA registration fee per player is $200 for the season and does not include uniform kit (approx. $80) or any optional tournaments (TBD). 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.

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.

Summer
Please be engaged in soccer over the summer. We are looking at holding some mini-camps for the Academy players throughout the summer. Coaches are looking at their schedules right now for availability. We also may have a weekly opportunity with some players from Brevard College and those details are being worked out as well. As soon as we have an idea of dates and logistics you will receive a calendar.

Brevard College is holding several camps sessions as well as the P2 Camps available. Links below:

Thank you,
TYSA Academy Coaches
