Players must be enrolled (paid) for Recreational Soccer to attend evaluations.
Junior Academy is an ADD-ON program. 

The CSA Junior Academy program ensures a coaching staff that engages the US Soccer Federation player development curriculum. The US Soccer Federation's age-appropriate curriculum is designed in an effort to prepare each Junior Academy player with confidence and success on any team they join in the future, specifically CSA's Youth Academy and other competitive soccer teams.

Players are selected for the Junior Academy Recreational Programs following pre-season evaluations. Evaluations are held prior to each season and are mandatory. Due to the the program structure, players cannot added during the season.  

What the program offers:
  • Professional Coaching
  • US Soccer Federation curriculum session plans and development format
  • Guidance, support and recommendations from our Directors
  • Technical Training Sessions
  • One practice night per week
  • All-Star night
  • Training Jersey
  • Optional 4 v 4 events on select Sundays
  • Rec Festival for 8U teams only

Age-Group Specifics:
Players selected for 6U Junior Academy (Birth year 2015) are removed from the traditional recreational program. Players pool train together once per week and on game days (Saturdays) play against each other in a 3v3 or 4v4 format. This is a proven way to challenge these players and speed their development. This program is offered at CSA-Charlotte/McAlpine Elementary School only.

7U Junior Academy (Birth year 2014) is designed to prepare young elite players to play 7v7 against the U10 rec players the following year at 8U. Selected players are removed from the traditional recreational program and instead train together during the week in a pool format. On game days (Saturdays), players are mixed onto teams and play inter-squad matches in a 6 v 6 format with a goalkeeper. This provides match-ups against similarly skilled and sized players to aid their development. This program is offered at CSA-Charlotte/McAlpine Elementary School only.
New for Spring 2021, we will form 7U Elite teams (one boys team, one girls team) that will play games in the CSA Youth Academy program. 

The 8U Junior Academy (Birth Year 2013)  is designed to prepare young elite players to play at CSA's Youth Academy Program the following year. 
This program is offered at CSA-Charlotte to 2013 birth year players. Teams at CSA-Matthews will be formed if supported by enrollment.
This age group includes two tiers:
 - 8U JA Players (boys and girls) train as a team during the week and on game day the teams play 7v7 against the 10U recreational teams.  
 - 8U Elite JA Players (boys and girls) will form a pool that will practice twice per week and will play games with the CSA Youth Academy. 

 

ELIGIBILITY:
Any 2013, 2014 or 2015 birth year player is welcome to register and attend the evaluations.
You must register for spring soccer and indicate that you will attend Junior Academy evaluations when asked in the registration process.
