TSA UNITED U10 Academy League

In an effort to meet the Louisiana Soccer Association Policy:

300.1.5 Clubs are prohibited from advertising and/or conducting tryouts in order to form teams in age groups 10U and younger.

The Thibodaux Soccer Association will be implementing the U10 UNITED Academy Soccer program.  This program is designed to be a challenging advanced soccer-training program that will develop players’ technical, tactical, psychological, and physical components.  The idea with UNITED Academy is for the players to compete in a jamboree type format rather than the normal competitive tournament.  The jamboree format is a three game no winner competition.  The Academy program philosophy is about individual player development over team development with the emphasis placed on skill development without the pressure of short-term win/loss results.

Who can participate in the UNITED Academy?

  • All players born in the year of 2010 and 2009 can register.  2009’s are preferred.  If we have the numbers we will have both female and male team.  If not registration money will be refunded and the player will be allowed to register with the U10 Rec league. 

Cost?

  • Time – Players are required to attend all practices and scheduled games.  Practices range about 2 hours long one time per week starting as early as the end of July.  Participation at this level is Mandatory.  This is not considered “recreational participation”.

     

  • Time – The team may play up to 7 jamborees throughout the 2018 Fall and 2019 Spring season

 

  • Time – Players participating on the Academy team(s) are required to play in both the 2018 Fall and 2019 Spring seasons.

     

  • Monetary – The estimated cost for the Academy is $375 per player which includes uniform, insurance, TSA fees, and Jamboree costs.  This does not include any travel bag, etc.. that the coach may require.

Registration?

  • Deadline to register for the Academy Soccer program is on June 28, 2018.  Registration is open now!

  • If you already registered for the U10 Recreation program and prefer to play in the United Academy, please register for the United Academy and TSA will refund the Recreational registration fee.  Don’t worry!

  • Registration will be limited due to team formation – first come first placed.
