Colonial Soccer Club

Serving the Plymouth, Whitemarsh and Conshohocken Communities


The U8 Academy program is offered to players in the Fall as a pre-travel training program for engaged players who love to play soccer. 

Players will be introduced to developmentally appropriate training that will be both fun and instructional.  This program is an introduction on what players and parents can expect from the Travel program. 

The focus is individual technical development as well as small group tactics while learning the 7v7 game.

There are no formal tryouts for this program.  Details for each season are below.  

The U8 Academy is run by our Technical Director, Danielle Fagan and she is assisted by our professional training staff, parent volunteers, as well as Plymouth Whitemarsh HS National Honor Society student-athletes.

The U8 Select Teams are coached by Colonial SC parent volunteers under the direction of Danielle Fagan.


  • Will this program interfere with the Intramural Program?  No, it is designed for players who would like more soccer and to be trained by a professional coach who will help them develop their skills and improve their game all while having fun.
  • Are there tryouts for this age group for the U8 Select team(s)?  No.  These players will be selected during the Intramural Fall Season by a staff of coaches. 
  • If we register for the U8 Academy, do we have to play for the U8 Select Team?  No as they are separate programs.
  • What if my child can't make all of the training sessions?  No problem!  Of course we would love to have 100% attendance especially because it helps with their development; however, we understand that conflicts arise.
  • Can my son/daughter be considered for the U8 Select Team if he/she doesn't participate in the U8 Academy?  Yes as they are two separate programs.  The U8 Select Team will be created as an All-Star Team selected by Intramural Coaches, Division Coordinator and the Technical Staff led by Danielle Fagan, Technical Director.
