Thoroughbreds & Academy (6U - 9U)

For many of CSC’s member families, the club soccer experience begins in the CSC Academy, where young players (six, seven, and eight-year-old boys and girls) learn and train together under the guidance of nationally licensed coaches. The CSC Academy program is focused on individual player development and training with emphasis on ball skills and principles of play as it applies to the game of soccer.

The Academy is designed to be a transitional tool between recreational and competitive soccer with a heavy emphasis on player development. CSC Academy teams compete in 4 to 6 playdates each fall and spring season with other clubs around the state. Travel is limited within the region. These playdates are intended as “friendlies,” where the emphasis is on developmental play and not on winning and losing. The playdates are centrally organized by the Kentucky Youth Soccer Association and are played in 7v7 format. Academy players have the option to participate in 1 to 2 tournaments per season.

The emphasis of the Academy is on learning and loving the game of soccer. Here, players discover the challenges of training, teamwork, and trying new skills. Parents, too, are introduced to player development, the camaraderie of club soccer, and the benefits of professional coaching.
