Pre-Academy Program

8U/7U PROGRAM - FALL 2020 & Spring 2021

 

DDYSC will be offering the Pre-Academy program for the fall '20/spring '21 seasons.

Due to Covid-19, Pre-Academy ID Clinics and registration will be scheduled for later in the summer.

Please keep checking our website for updaes on Pre-Academy ID Clinic dates and program registration.

 

The DDYSC Pre-Academy program is an opportunity for enthusiastic soccer loving six and seven year old boys and girls to increase their soccer development in a more focused and structured learning environment.  It’s a great introduction to club soccer and professional training and is a stepping stone to higher level competitive soccer in academy and select.

Pre-Academy players will be evaluated and selected at tryout sessions held at the end of May/beginning of June each year, and players joining are asked to commit to a full year, which includes the fall and spring seasons.  There may be the opportunity to tryout between the fall and spring seasons, but these tryouts depend on our numbers and aren’t guaranteed.  It is advised that players trying out have at least a year of organized soccer experience.

TRAINING

Pre-Academy players will train twice a week for an hour and 15 minutes with an emphasis on soccer coordination, individual ball skills, and small group play.
