Training Format: Players are loosely divided by birth year for training day allocation.  Within each age group the players will be divided into training "pools" based on numerous factors.  Throughout the course of the season, pools will be created based on tiered (ability), parity, RAE, and bio-banding.  Our coaches adhere to a strict coaching paradigm created so that every child, regardless of ability, is facing an appropriate level of challenge.  Each season's training format will begin with 3 weeks of training in technical stations, followed by 3 weeks of whole-part-whole method, 4 weeks of Academy Session, and 2 weeks of “let them play” SSG’s.

Player Kit: Academy players train in an all-black kit that can be purchased at Third Coast Soccer on Perkins.  All players will wear the kit for training and competitions.  It is advised that you purchase more than one jersey.

Competitions:  All Intra-Squad Games (ISG)  will be played on Wednesday's 5:00-6:15 or 6:15-7:30pm.  These games are small-sided where we can manipulate the number of players, size of field, and conditions/restrictions of the games in order to highlight the Principles of Play that we want to focus on.
