EPIC DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY PROGRAMS SPRING REGISTRATION OPEN!!!
This spring we will have three divisions in our growing program to meet the needs of our players! The first is Academy Kickers and is for our youngest players at U5/U6 (born in 2012 and 2013). Our Kickers will get off to a great start with training 2x a week here in Shepherdstown. Practices are comprised of fun training games and basic skill foundation. Cost for the spring season is $65.
Our middle group is our main Academy and will build on the progressions we have already begun to put in place. Developmentally appropriate, Academy is typically suited for U7 and U8 players (born in 2010 and 2011). Practices are also 2x a week here in Shepherdstown. Training will be more formal then the Lil' Kickers as we look to introduce team concepts and deeper skills appropriate for the age group. Cost for the spring is $80. The players in this age group will play 8 Academy style games on Saturdays in the Frederick Four’s League.
Our final option is our Academy Pro. Academy Pro will be typically comprised of boys and girls U9 and U10 (born in 2008 and 2009). Our A.P. team(s) will compete in the Frederick Hexaleague, along with training twice a week here locally in Shepherdstown with licensed, professional coaches. Playing in a small sided environment, players touch the ball more often and become more skillful. The fee for the spring is $125. Academy Pro players graduate from A.P. at U10 and go on to form the nucleus of their gender specific full travel teams!
All of our Academy options are coached by licensed, professional coaches with years of soccer playing and training experience. Academy is overseen by our Academy Director David Leonard and Epic's Director of Coaching Aric Canonico. At this time, we anticipate all Academy options to train on Mondays and Wednesdays starting March 12th.
We look forward to a great season and having you join Epic Soccer Club!! Visit us at epicsoccerclub.org and on Facebook for more information on our club
