Pre-Academy Program

The Pre-Academy Program has been suspended and will not be offered for Fall 2018/Spring 2019 Seasons

Macon Soccer Club is proud to announce the continuation of the Pre-Academy Program (now in it's 3rd year) for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 seasons. The Pre-Academy program will be available at the U8 and U9 age groups only (players born on 2009 & 2010). The Pre-Academy program will serve as a bridge between the U8 Recreational Program and the U10 Academy Program. Because we understand that the Academy Program plays such a key role on all soccer players' development, but at the same time is a little more time consuming than Recreational, we introduced the Pre-Academy program as an viable alternative and to allow a transitional year between the 2 programs. We believe that this transitional year will give all families the time to evaluate, and make a more informative decision as to if their player is ready to be part of the Academy program full-time at U10, or if he/she should just continue participating in our Recreational program.

* The Pre-Academy program will be offered to all rising U9 players, and some rising U8 if considered ready to play at the Pre-Academy level.

* Players must be born on 2009 and 2010 in order to be eligible for this program.

* Eligible players will be able to take advantage of this Pre-Academy program for a whole soccer year (Fall & Spring). Once the player moves to U10, he/she can not longer take part of this program.

* Depending on the number of players that show interest on this program, the idea is to create at least 1 team, but the goal is to have 2 teams if possible.

* A professional trainer/coach from our Staff pool will be assigned to train and coach the team/s.

* Team/s will train twice a week for 1.5 hours just like all other Academy teams, and will get the same benefits all Academy teams get such as Goalkeeper Sessions and Skills Night Clinic Sessions.

* Training Curriculum and Objectives for the Pre-Academy team/s will be the same as those that are applied on the full-time U9 Academy team.

* The team/s will participate on the U10 Recreational division, and also play 1 Academy game on those afternoons that Academy teams are scheduled to play at home. No traveling will be required.

* Fees will be a combination of Recreation (Registration fee for U10), and Academy (training fees).

* All players interested on being part of the Pre-Academy program must attend Academy Assessments on May 30th and 31st at 6pm. Please remember that Pre-Registration for assessments is already available online. Assessments are FREE!

We look forward to seeing many families taking advantage of this new and exciting opportunity MSC is offering.
