All about PRECISION / REPETITION / EXCELLENCE!

The training emphasizes advanced dribbling skills, specifically 1v1 attacking skills. Players will gain knowledge and experience that will help them prepare for VSA's Academy program. Sessions are conducted by VSA's paid staff coaches who are educated to execute a specific curriculum. The last 15 minutes of the sessions will be dedicated to small sided games. Seasons & Training: VSA PRE-Academy players are grouped into training groups with other players similar in age and they participate in training sessions conducted by VSA coaching staff. There are 6 training sessions per season and the program operates during the fall, winter, spring and summer. Training sessions during the fall and spring seasons are typically 60 minutes in length. Spring, Summer, and Fall: Timberline Soccer Complex – Mondays from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. Winter: Indoors on Saturdays usually early to late afternoon.

2020 - 2021 9U-10U Academy

The 9U/10U Academy Program is a team/league-based program for players born between Jan 1st, 2011 and Dec 31st, 2012. 
 
Registration Fees: $295 - through February 15th $320 - after February 15th ($25 late fee)
 
 Description: Players will train twice a week with licensed parent volunteers and VSA Staff coaches under a season long curriculum that is age specific. Coaches in the Academy Program have (or are in the process of obtaining) a minimum of an USSF Grassroots 7v7 License.  Many of VSA's Academy Coaches have a higher level of licensing. Players are placed on balanced teams to compete against other Academy club teams in league play. Rosters change from season to season, but the age group will always train together. The Academy Program is training focused with the development of the individual player in mind. There are no tryouts for the Academy Program, however the program is intended to be a higher level of play and commitment than recreation.
 
Practice Times: Academy Players train twice a week at the VSA complex - normally on Tuesdays and Fridays.  
 
Virtual Training: If the situation merits and we are unable to train in person the Academy will continue to train virtually until the restrictions are lifted or that specific season comes to an end. VSA understands that virtual training is not like in-person training however we do feel that the players can receive the same value, which is laid out below:
 
Fall & Spring (Virtual Training Sessions, if applicable)
2 - 30-minute sessions per week with your training group / team
 
 
League Play: Academy teams participate in league play against other Academy club teams in the Des Moines area and surrounding communities. League games are generally played on Saturdays with an occasional Sunday. Home games are played at the VSA Timberline Soccer Complex. 
 
The Central Iowa Academy Festival is covered by the program registration. All other festivals/tournaments are optional and invoiced out separately. Festivals and Tournament may have games on Saturdays, Sundays, or both days.

The number of players on a roster and the way they are grouped is all dependent on the number of players that register in each age group.

2020 - 2021 College Prep Packages

Elite soccer clubs have a responsibility to guide and support players in achieving their individual potential to play soccer at appropriate collegiate levels and at colleges that fit their specific goals. In order to achieve this, clubs must develop intentional and meaningful strategies, such as a College PREP Program. The purpose of a College PREP Program is not only to help players figure out what collegiate soccer programs would be a good fit for them, but also to help them (and their parents) navigate the entire process from beginning to end and to discern the college that best helps them achieve their long term career goals. The overall goal would be for players and parents to have positive recruiting experiences resulting in successful college careers for VSA players, both on and off the soccer field. The achievement of this goal will ultimately result in VSA being the “club of choice” for all elite players in central Iowa.
