Academy Programs

Our Academy program is a year long commitment that runs from June through April. There are a few breaks in the season, but we ask that players and families be committed to the entire soccer year.

  • Developmental Academy U10
  • Academy U11-U14
  • Senior Academy U15 -U18

Season Overview

May: Tryouts and voluntary training

June-August: Training twice a week. At least one weekend summer tournament included in cost (other clubs charge extra fees for tournaments).

September-November: Training twice a week with games on the weekend, followed by End of Season Tournament. Our U15 teams allow for 8th graders to practice and play in fall league, with 9th grade teammate having the option to play games with their club on the weekends. Senior Academy takes a break to allow of High School soccer.

January: Voluntary training. Some teams participate in Futsal or Indoor leagues

February-April: Training twice a week with games on the weekend starting in March, followed by End of Season Cup Tournament

We organize and practice academy style. This means that while there may be multiple “teams” at each age/gender, the players will all practice as one Academy with the same head coach and the same assistant coaches. This allows players to learn from each other, challenge each other, and float between the two “teams” as necessary. A player may play in one or more “team” games in a weekend, depending on several factors.

Foothills believes in the value of players having multiple interests outside of soccer. Many of our Academy players play multiple sports or participate in other activities.
