Brookfield Soccer Announces New Academy Program

Brookfield Soccer Association is excited to announce the expansion of its Academy program to include U8, U9 and U10 soccer teams, beginning in fall of 2013.   Players in these age groups will now have the choice of joining a fall Academy team or a fall BSA recreational team.

The BSA Academy program will offer players the opportunity to learn the game from a licensed coach and to play for BSA against other local community teams participating in the new Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) Academy program.  This program will provide a higher level of player development for players interested in an advanced development model.  Team play dates with other clubs will be coordinated through WYSA.

Additional Information:

What is the cost?  The cost will be $500 for U8, $550 for U9, and $600 for U10.  This fee will include uniforms, WYSA-organized league play, and entry into two tournaments, one in spring and one in fall.

Who is eligible?  All U7, U8 and U9 players currently participating on a BSA recreational soccer team are invited to participate on an Academy team beginning in the fall of 2013. There is no pre-selection of players or tryouts.

How are Academy teams formed?  All players who register for an Academy team will be evaluated by the Academy coaching staff and placed on an appropriate level team.

How many teams will there be?  The number of teams will be determined by the number of players that register.

How often will Academy teams practice?  BSA Academy teams will practice twice per week.

Will teams participate in tournaments?  Academy teams will compete in one local tournament in both the fall and spring.
