About VSA's Academy

About VSA's Academy Program

The Iowa Soccer Association Academy is a state-initiated and state-led program which parents of 9U/10U players in a qualifying club have the option of registering their child for academy or recreational soccer.

The impetus behind offering two levels of play at 9U/10U is to allow players to play with and against players of similar ability and at a level where they will experience the most success and have the most fun playing the sport.
