The mission of the Pre-PDL Academy is to provide players with the opportunity to flourish in a competitive environment in which skill development is the key determinant of success. At the Academy, quality and long-term benefits are more important than short-term gain. The Pre-PDL Academy is designed for the passionate, excited 2016 (U8 and some U7) player who desires to be challenged in every aspect of their game. The Academy will offer a continued introduction to passing, receiving, ball striking, ball control, and dribbling; as well as a continued effort to expand each player's coordination, balance and body movements as well as confidence. The coaching staff has combined their experience and knowledge to create a curriculum which will both challenge and excite each Academy participant.
The Academy is for the experienced 2016 player who is looking to enter into the Player Development League next year.
