About the U-14 Academy Program

The U-14 Academy Program will feature many of the current Academy clubs and select clubs from outside of the current Academy structure.

The program will be based on the same philosophy as the older Academy age groups, featuring more training sessions, less games and more meaningful games. The competitive schedule will place a greater emphasis on local games due to the younger ages of the players and will also include a futsal component during the winter.
