Spring 2023 Grassroots

Spring 2023 Grassroots Academy!

Grassroots Academy is our foundational program where kids learn to become creative artists of the soccer ball! The focus is on teaching the basics of the game with the goal of them falling in love! No laps, no lines, just lots of movement and fun!

Our professional coaching staff runs these 8-week sessions where we practice only, no games. Kids are in a fun, challenging environment where they learn the game without the pressure of winning and losing. 

We offer competitive programs, but Grassroots Academy is the first step in our player development pathway and is the perfect place to learn the basics and fall in love with the game!

We offer three age groups in Grassroots:

  • U6 (Birth years 2017 - 2019)
  • U8 (2015 - 2016), and
  • U10 (2013-2014)

The U6s practice 2x a week, and the U8s and U10s practice 3x a week. We kick off the week of April 3rd and go until May 28th.

This spring's Grassroots Academy is a special 8-week session. Two added weeks! All first-time Eagles receive an MCSA training shirt!

Registration is $105 for U6 and $165 for U8 and U10. This is less than $7 per session!
