WVFC ACADEMY Programs

We have 2 programs for the younger players:

FUNdamentals: 5-6 yr olds

Pre-Travel All-Star: 7-8 yr olds

 

Your child will experience a valuable foundation of soccer skills and understanding of basic principles of soccer! Our balanced and creative approach to player development will have a positive impact on your child that goes far beyond the soccer field. We also focus on self-improvement, self-discipline, fair play, and teamwork! We also make it fun and challenging! Note: The Academy for 7-8 year olds is designed to be the foundation for the u-9 Select Travel team that is meant to be very competitive, and is formed through Tryouts at the end of May for Fall start in August.

U5-U6 FUNdamentals Academy
(born 2016 & 2017)

Our U5-U6 FUNdamentals clinics are a great way to get your little ones introduced to soccer or supplement their recreational team practices. Held once a week for 1 hour, your little player will learn the basic techniques of individual skill, as described in our U5/U6 Club Curriculum through the use of games and activities that your children will enjoy.

 

Every practice will begin with playground type activities to get their bodies moving and strengthening key muscle groups important to any kind of physical activity or sport. Most soccer activities will involve one ball per player to maximize your child’s time with the ball at their feet and increase their comfort and control. Parents are encouraged to join in on the fun!

Pre-Travel All-Star Academy

(U7-U8: born 2014 & 2015)

 

The All-Star Academy is a program to prepare young players interested in Travel Soccer -- to develop and improve their skills in order to play at a higher competitive level.

 

Our All-Star Program Curriculum will teach the players the important fundamental skills required of all individuals with the desire to play at the more competitive and elite levels in the future. The focus of learning is on the development of the individual’s ball control and dribbling skills -- in addition to all soccer skills and tactics. We provide them with the most opportunities for practice and implementation of skills and tactics, in small- sided games -- to maximize touches.


We hope to develop the players' self-confidence in foot-skills, which will improve vision, decision-making and team-play. Foot-skills is #1 differentiator in soccer successes!

 

Our All-Star Academy players will participate in the Frederick 4's recreational league on Saturdays in the Fall & Spring seasons at Ballenger Creek Park - Frederick, MD.

Note: The Academy for 7-8 year olds is designed to be the foundation for the u-9 Select Travel team that is meant to be very competitive, and is formed through Tryouts at the end of May for Fall start in August.
