Academy Information

Youth Academy Program - Ages 5-15 yrs

The FC Pride Academy Program sees your child as you do -  as a receptive, eager individual with unique talents, skills and interests. It is our desire to provide a supportive, nurturing atmosphere, where your child is encouraged grow -  socially,  physically, mentally — laying the foundation for a lifetime of self-discovery and independence.  

We take great pride in providing positive instruction for each player to ensure development in four critical areas – Technical, Tactical, Physical and Physiological. These components are introduced to each player providing an experience that is both developmental and fun. There is no selection process for this program - just sign up. This program is open to anyone - you do not have to be an FC Pride player.
