Our Pre-Academy Training System is designed to maximize the opportunity for each player to develop and succeed at the appropriate level. To help facilitate individual growth, our coaching staff uses aspects of both pool training and team-building. This enables our coaches the freedom to move players and structure teams from week to week to ensure each player is placed in the right learning environment. We follow the Play-Practice-Play model put in place by US Soccer.
What does my player need at every session?
What is the game format?
Pre-Academy will break out into a variety of game formats throughout the year: 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, ect... All of which will prepare the players for their jump to the Youth Academy (7v7).
Can players play on their recreational team and participate in the Pre-Academy as well?
No. Our program is a 10 month long commitment, and players are not allowed to participate in any other program under the PTFC umbrella while playing in the Pre-Academy program.
Can my player join the program if we missed assessments?
If your player misses the scheduled assessments, please contact our Youth Academy Director: Carter Robbins, to find out about the Make-Up Assessment Date or see it's possible to join the program.
