The CSA Junior Academy program ensures a coaching staff that utilizes 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.

The goal of the JA program is to give advanced players the opportunity to train and play against players of similar abilities. Emphasis in JA is technical work on the ball, with main training focus on improving the three basic soccer skills of dribbling, passing, and shooting. Training will emphasize dribbling, taking players on in 1v1 situation, the art of passing, movement without the ball, and finishing. Players will learn “the bigger picture” concepts of soccer as we start to introduce positions (goalie/defender/midfielder/forward) and teach them how to play the game. Selected players are removed from the traditional recreational program and instead train together once per week in a pool format.

Weekly pool training is tentatively scheduled for Thursday evenings at Frank Liske Park 6:00 - 7:00pm.
An optional weekly tech training session will be offered.

On game days (Saturdays), JA players are mixed onto teams and play inter-squad matches in a 7 v 7 format with a goalkeeper. Game times to be determined prior to the start of the season.
CSA North Junior Academy (Birth years 2016 & 2017)
Fees: 8U Rec Program Fee $120 + JA Fee $75 = $195 per season. 
Players must have the standard CSA Rec uniform kit or purchase it separately.
