2021 - 2022 9U-10U Academy

The 9U/10U Academy Program is a team/league-based program for players born between Jan 1st, 2012 and Dec 31st, 2013. 
 
Spring 2022 Season: planned for March 22nd - June 12th

Registration Fees: $295 - through February 20th. $320 - after February 20th ($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. There may be opportunities for tiered (skill based) 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 - typically 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 the Central Academy Club Development League (CDL) and play against other CDL 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. 
 
End of season Festivals/tournaments are optional and invoiced out separately. Festivals and Tournaments may have games on Saturdays, Sundays, or both days and may require an overnight stay if traveling out of state. 
 
To see if your player is ready for the academy program, please visit the VSA Academy Page
