This program offers a unique introduction to typical Academy soccer demands for interested players. Junior Academy players are identified by ASA staff coaches and invited to participate in the program by attending tryouts, ID Days, registering for the ASA recreational league, futsal skill, futsal league or participating in ASA programs during the year. The Junior Academy allows players to be trained by the ASA professional coaching staff, many of whom are current Academy coaches. The Junior Academy teams will also participate in a local league and scrimmages, as available throughout the year.

This program provides players with an early introduction to the ASA Curriculum, Philosophy & Style of Play, as typically our Junior Academy players have a bit more comfort and confidence within the game. Participation in the Junior Academy does not guarantee a roster spot in the Academy(Travel) program.
