What is the Triad Elite Soccer Academy?
The Triad Elite Soccer Academy (Academy for short) is a developmental program, designed to improve foot skills, tactical and technical game skills, shooting, passing and dribbling. The Academy is designed for 8-12-year-old soccer players.
How does the Academy accomplish that?
The Academy uses a combination of skills sessions and small sided games to teach the players the skills needed to move on to Classic, Select, and Challenge programs. Our philosophy is simple, develop soccer players using fun and exciting drills, skills sessions and games.
Where is the Academy?
The Academy training will take place at the Meadowlark Middle School.
Who coaches the Academy?
The Academy is coached by licensed coaches provided by Triad Elite Soccer Club and Directed by DOC Kacy Charlton and Academy Director Jeff Lochrie
Why is there an assessment for the Academy?
The Academy is an official NCYSA program. In order to participate in an official NCYSA program, each player must attend an assessment session. The Academy assessments are designed for 8-12-year-old soccer players. As the program is set up to develop soccer players, the assessment focuses on that. They are NO tryouts just assessments that must be attended during the General Tryouts in May.
How much is the Academy?
The Academy is $640 per soccer year. The $640 gives your child a fall season (Aug – Nov) and a spring season (Feb – Apr).
What is included in the price?
The Academy fee includes an official NCYSA player card, uniform, licensed skills coaches, Academy days with other soccer clubs, and all of the fun the players can handle.
How many practices are there per week?
There are two (hour long) practices per week and one game session per week (either a small sided internal game session or an Academy day with another club).
Will there be any additional training opportunities?
Yes! Triad Elite offers a comprehensive winter training program (December – February) and summer soccer camps.
What age groups can participate in the Academy?
The age range for the Academy is 8-12 for both boys and girls.
Do you mix age groups/genders?
Yes. For skills sessions, ages and genders are mixed, but special attention is paid to each player as they develop. For games, age groups and genders are separated for Academy days. For internal game days, we will mix genders, but not age groups.
