Development for future soccer success!
The PWSC Academy Program is the first stage in the youth soccer development. It is designed to give younger players better coaching, conditioning and more advanced skill work to prepare each individual player for future success in our PWSC Select Program or any higher level of soccer play. The program focuses on individual technical development and not on “Winning”.
The PWSC Academy Program and coaches strive to create a fun and exciting environment while teaching and developing the players' soccer skills.
Fall registration opens in June or July.
What is PWSC Academy Soccer?
PWSC Academy Soccer is for U8 through U10 players (2017 – 2014 birth years) who are looking for a more competitive soccer experience compared to a traditional recreational soccer league.
PWSC Academy Soccer players will be placed on gender-specific teams at their age level with other competitive soccer players. There are no formal “tryouts” for academy soccer teams, but participation on an academy team could be limited if a particular age group were to have too many players for one team but not enough players to create a second team at that age group.
What will practices and games look like in Academy?
During the fall and spring seasons, academy soccer teams will train two times per week for 1.5 hours each session. They will compete in the WYSA Academy Soccer League with games against other Academy soccer teams in southeastern Wisconsin. Players will participate in a minimum of one competitive soccer tournament in the fall and one in the spring. Players will also be training once per week during the winter months (January – March), and academy soccer teams will have the opportunity to play indoor soccer games in a formal league during the winter.
What is included with my Academy registration fee?
Your Academy registration fee includes a full player kit -- 2 jerseys (home and away), shorts, and socks. Your Academy registration fee will also assist in covering the cost for licensed soccer coaches, referee fees, and field fees. Tournament fees and indoor soccer league fees are not included in the base registration fee as those costs are specific to each team depending on how many tournaments and indoor leagues each team participates in.
All sessions and home games will be held at the PWSC Kohler Credit Union Fields in Port Washington and session days are tentatively expected to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm to 6:30pm. All Academy teams will practice together to create a consistent and transparent soccer program that will allow the player to thrive in the individual and team atmosphere.
