  The FCC Early Academy Program is a seasonal training program for U5-U6 players designed to introduce technical skills while developing love of the game.
.


 The Early Academy will introduce the game at the fundamental level by emphasizing individual, skills-based training and small-sided scrimmages designed to provide an inspiring, fun environment that fosters confidence.

Early Academy is a seasonal program running both in the fall and spring (with separate registration for each season).



P
layers will be introduced to the technical components of the game – all while playing loads of training games. 

The ability to run with the ball (dribbling), the ability to move the ball to a teammate (passing), softly controlling a ball that arrives at a player’s feet (receiving) and hitting the ball with power (shooting) – these are all technical components we will introduce early in each session with the second part of each session (30 minutes) devoted to game play. 

We understand that kids are primarily interested in three things when coming out to play soccer:

1.     Having Fun

2.     Playing Games

3.     Score Goals

Players entering the Early Academy Program will participate in a format that is both fun and better suited to their development.  The small-sided games approach (4v4) is the best way to introduce the game to young players.
