Jr Academy

The Jr. Academy Program, now in its 9th season, is a program designed for current U8 Recreational players who are looking for new challenges, are good listeners, are willing to learn, and want additional quality training. The Jr. Academy will not replace the Recreational program for your player, but will provide an opportunity for additional training from licensed coaches. The purpose of this program is to provide a technical foundation for players who truly love the game to build upon. The Jr. Academy prepares players for the Academy program at Macon Soccer Club, which becomes available to them at 8 years of age.  

Objectives:

- To provide professional training for our more serious players.

- To improve the players’ technical abilities.

- Focus will be on individual development of our players.
