Youth Academy

Program

The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) Region 213 Youth Academy is an AYSO approved FLEX Extra Concurrent Program. It is a pilot program for Under-9 (U9) through Under-14 (U14) boys and girls players who:

  • Are participating in the Fall Season of the primary program;
  • Possess the appropriate skills, commitment and abilities. And,
  • Are participating in the U9, U10, U12 or U14 divisions of the primary (or "recreational") program.

The Youth Academy is completely separate of the Primary Program. It will not interfere with primary program practices or games since it is conducted exclusively on Sunday. Each Sunday, the players lucky enough to be a part of the Youth Academy get 1 hour of training overseen by professional coaches from AYSO Soccer Camps. This 1 hour of training will be a progressive, 9-week program designed to prepare players for all-stars and for the Extra teams. The training is then followed by a small-sided game between teams.

If your child is selected, then the fee is $125 for the Fall Season and includes a new and different uniform, the paid coaches and all other Youth Academy Program fees.

The Youth Academy guidelines are now Article Fourteen of the Regional Guidelines (CLICK HERE).
