2023 Spring Academy Season
The Academy is the heart of our club, providing professional, age-appropriate soccer coaching to youth aged 5 to 9 years old. We welcome all new and experienced soccer players into the academy.
We strive to create team environments in which every player can be successful. Players will be placed into a team with others of similar age and ability. Where possible we will create boys teams and girls teams.
Your child's enrolment in the VRFC Academy will include:
1) Two training sessions per week
Our team training will take place on Monday and Friday evenings at Charleson Park.
Monday evening classes will be focused on foundational skill acquisition. Each player will have a ball at their feet for the majority of the session to maximize their development and confidence.
Our Friday sessions will comprise of non-competitive games in which we will play VRFC teams against one another to put our learnings into practice.
See below for full details of training dates and times.
2) Top quality coaching from a certified team
To ensure our players are receiving quality training, our team of energetic coaches hold recognized coaching qualifications. They are experienced in coaching children aged 2-19 all over the world, including the UK, China, USA, Brazil and Canada.
Your player will stay with the same coaching team through the season so they can bond with their coach and form authentic connections with their teammates.
