About

Junior Academy provides competitive play for our developing and experienced players aged 7 – 12 (8U – 12U). Practices are structured with age-appropriate activities focused on field positioning, ball control, tactics and scrimmages. Teams play in approved competitive League at a competitive division appropriate for the team. Division selection is established on a team by team basis at the discretion of the coach with the support of club leadership. The League includes mostly other Charleston area and coastal district teams, which means limited travel.
