Join Our Jr academy
Girls and Boys Jr. Academy teams are composed of players selected during tryouts by our SUSA staff. Players must demonstrate a level of commitment to training that exceeds that of the Bright Futures leagues.
The commitment of our players will help the SUSA Coaching Staff ensure that players are developing appropriately within their peer groups, and to establish an accurate trajectory toward their initial placement on a more competitive Academy team. As players exit this phase of the Youth Development Program, and enter the Academy, they will have developed a strong fundamental skill level, and an understanding of our style of play, and the culture at SUSA.
