U8 Academy Program 2018-03-09T10:23:44+00:00


Our developmental program to prepare players for competitive play.

U7/U8 Academy Program

For 2018, our Academy program will introduce competitive soccer to players born in 2011. It is the ideal progression for graduates of Folsom Soccer Club’s U7 Academy program and all other 6 & 7 year olds interested in a longer season. Our 2010 players can also participate in the Spring Academy in order to prepare for U9 tryouts in May.

We understand the importance of age-appropriate training methods and instilling a real love for the game and our coaches will create an environment that is challenging, safe and ultimately fun!

The U8 Academy players will also participate in 4v4 playdates with other clubs in the Sacramento region.
