U5-U7 Development Academy

U5-7 Development Academy

The Development Academy is the earliest stage of our youth player development model. This training-only program uses the same licensed, professional coaches as in the older age groups and implements a well-structured curriculum that promotes young players’ motor skill development while developing a comfort level with the ball.

The technical objective of the U5-U7 program is to teach players to dribble. Dribbling is the foundation skill for all the other skills and must be taught first. Aimless kicking will be discouraged by the coaches, as it develops bad habits and has no long-term benefits. Our curriculum, specifically designed for the U5-U7 players, is called KINGS or “Kicking Is Not Good Soccer.”
