Watch our informational video

This program offers a unique introduction to typical travel soccer demands for interested players. Academy players are identified by ASA staff coaches and invited to participate in the program by attending ID Days, registering for the ASA recreational league or participating in ASA programs during the year. The Academy allows players to be trained by the ASA professional coaching staff, many of whom are current travel coaches. Academy teams will also participate in a local league and scrimmages, as available throughout the year.

This program provides players with an early introduction to the ASA Curriculum, Philosophy & Style of Play, as typically our Academy players have a bit more comfort and confidence within the game. Participation in the Academy does not guarantee a roster spot in the travel program.
