Description: Catawba Soccer Youth Academy offers Academy level soccer for the U8 through U12 age groups (8, 9, 10 and 11 year olds). We have the ability to roster younger players on a case by case basis. The Academy is designed to develop committed young soccer players and to promote their love of the game. The emphasis is fun and enjoyment while preparing our players for the future challenges of the game. The Academy will stress player development. If we focus on developing the player and putting them in the best training situations with our best coaches, winning will come.
All teams play both a fall and spring schedule. The first date of training for the fall season will be mid-August (TBD), and the last day of training will be mid-November.
