Program Overview

Challenge Youth Academy, U8-U10

Challenge Youth Academy is the final phase before players enter our Competitive Program. Challenge Youth Academy players in these age groups should be committed to training at a higher level than in our Rec Program. While still focused on fun, our Youth Academy programs are designed to equip young athletes with the tools needed to become competitive soccer players. Each week Challenge Professional Coaches will run two (2) training sessions using a progressive and sophisticated curriculum designed specifically for these age groups. The objective of the curriculum is to develop each of the four components of a soccer player: Technical, Tactical, Psychological and Physical in a FUN and age appropriate manner. All players in the Challenge Youth Academy Program play in at least 50% of each game.
