U8 ACADEMY

The U8 Academy program is offered to players in the Fall and the Spring 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 that is played at 9v9.  

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

The Spring program is training only and is a great way to prepare for the U9 Travel Team Tryouts which are typically held in May.

The Fall program offers one or more Select tournaments at the end of the Fall season for which players will be identified during the Fall training sessions and invited to participate in the tournament(s).  Players do not have to participate in the tournament(s). 

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.


FAQ

  • 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.  During the training sessions we will be evaluating the players so that we can create teams that are equally competitive and will invite as many players as we can to make teams to enter into local tournaments and festivals to give the players the opportunity to play teams outside of Colonial SC.
 
  • If we register for the U8 Academy, do we have to play for the U8 Select Team?  No.  You can decline the invitation.
 
  • 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?  No, unfortunately we are only evaluating players in the U8 Academy program and will not be holding separate tryouts.
