GSA South offers a Junior Academy soccer program for both boys and girls, ages 6 and 7 years old. We recognize that there are many talented and enthusiastic players looking for a more focused environment in which to grow their skills. The objective of this program is to provide your children with a more advanced and comprehensive training experience with a focus on individual skills and small group play. This program is an excellent introduction to club soccer and acts as a stepping-stone to the Academy program.
Jr Academy participants practice together in a pool system, players will be split into balanced teams for games. Each team will have a professional coach during practice and games. Each player wears a modified academy uniform; details provided at tryouts.
Tryouts for the coming seasonal year are held each year in late May. Detail about the tryout process, including dates and time will be available on our website in early May.
