All Junior Academy players must purchase the blue Recreational uniform if they do not already have one from the fall season! Click here.

Please remember that we cannot guarantee sibling placement on the same practice night but we will attempt to do so if a team is available and your other child has no other requests.

Junior Academy Program Information for Fall 2019

Fall 2019 Information

The following programs are offered at CSA-Charlotte:
6U (2014 birth year boys and girls)
7U (2013 birth year boys and girls)
8U (2012 birth year boys and girls)

The following programs are offered at CSA-Matthews, if supported by enrollment:
8U Junior Academy (2012 birth year boys and girls)

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.

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 2014) 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 2013) is designed to prepare young elite players to play 7v7 against the U10 rec players the following year at U8. 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.

The 8U Junior Academy (Birth Year 2012)  is designed to prepare young elite players to play at CSA's Youth Academy Program the following year. Players train as a team during the week and on game day the teams play 7v7 against the 10U recreational teams. This puts them up against older, stronger and faster players to challenge them and speed their development in preparation for the next year. The top 8U Junior Academy team for boys and girls may participate with the CSA Youth Academy at OrthoCarolina Sportsplex/CPI Fields at Flat Branch Park. This program is offered at CSA-Charlotte to 2012 birth year players. Teams at CSA-Matthews will be formed if supported by enrollment.

 

ELIGIBILITY:
Any 2012, 2013 or 2014 birth year player is welcome to register and attend the evaluations, regardless of location of registration.
Past season Junior Academy players will need to re-qualify each season.

Players must be registered and paid for the regular 6U or 8U Recreational Program and sign up for the Junior Academy Evaluation Program. 

Please remember that you cannot select a practice night, coach, or friend if participating in Junior Academy.

No refunds for 6U or 8U fees given if player does not make Junior Academy. If a player does not qualify for Junior Academy, they will be assigned to a 6U or 8U recreational program based on their age and special requests. Evaluations are offered before each season begins. Past season Junior Academy players will need to re-qualify each season to remain on the team as long as they are eligible.
