Eagles Academy (ages 7-9)

Our aim is to prepare Eagles pre-academy graduates to be ready for the technical and physical demands of our first year Academy teams (U8/U9). Eagles will be exposed to all of the technical and physical training our U8 players receive, with the exception of the tactical component needed for competitive games.

The Eagles curriculum incorporates the following aspects of our U8 curriculum:

  • Technical skills: juggling, passing and receiving, dribbling, long balls, shooting, dribbling against an opponent (1v1), heading, moves / fakes, tackling
  • Psychomotor Skills: basic motor skills, postural, sensory perception, acrobatic abilities
  • Coordination Ability: combined movements, spatial & temporal skills, differentiation, reaction, balance, adaptation & transformation, rhythm, anticipation, motor creativity
  • Athletic & Physical Ability: speed (perceptive, anticipative, decisional, reaction, cyclic motor, acyclic motor, action, intervention), proprioception, articular mobility

These four basic elements are essential in player development. Exposing young players to these skills before age 11 enables them to reach their maximum potential. Eagles players will begin with the simplest of exercises to build confidence while still maintaining challenge for each individual.

Ideal for: 7 and 8 year olds, or 9 year olds not ready for a competitive team but still interested in training.

Regular Season Time: Every Sunday, 9:00am – 10:30am
Regular Season Location: Hillsdale High School turf field
Regular Season Cost: $140
