Our Fall Academy runs for 10 weeks starting August 10th. These sessions are open to current club members as well as any new players who are interested in joining our club. There are no try outs for this season. All of the Fall Academy sessions will be held at the Regional Training Center Astro turf fields by the Virginia Beach Sportsplex.
The U10, U12, & U14 Fall Academy will have weekly 3-hour practice sessions for the first 5 weeks and 7v7 tournament game play for the last 5 weeks. The 3-hour practices will focus on 120 minutes of skill development to improve elimination skills, passing, receiving, hitting, and defense followed by 60 minutes of structured game play. For the the last 5 weeks, players will be divided into teams and participate in 7v7 tournaments. Teams for each tournament are selected based on players availability to give every player an equal number of opportunities to play. All levels of play are welcome.
The U16 & U19 Fall Academy will have weekly 2-hour practice sessions that will focus training on outdoor skills and tactics as well as corner specialties. The skills we will be focusing on are: Hits & sweeps (forehand and reverse), ariels and lifts on cage, elimination skills to build faster hand speed, first touch receptions and deflections, drag flicks, stick stops, inserting, etc.
There will also be specialist training for goalkeepers of all ages at each session.
Dates and times will vary each week so please check the schedule for exact times.
