HYSA Academy Fall 2016

Academy adds 'U9' 2008 Birth Year

HYSA Academy Fall 2016

Academy soccer's main emphasis is on skill development, the personal technical soccer skills the player needs to advance in soccer. Commitment level is higher than Recreational league, players practice twice a week and play on weekends usually saturdays.

Academy Soccer has been expanded to include now both 2007 & 2008 Birth Years (U9 & U10)

Practices will start week of August 15th. Fall Program Fee: $150.00

Academy teams will play a travel schedule and play in our Sleeping Giant Tournament that is included in the program fees. Players do need to purchase uniform (Cost under $40) separately from the program fees. Efforts are made to keep travel close, Fall play allows a little more flexibility and parents assist with decisions of availability.
