Pre-Academy Program Info Pre-Academy Program Info


The HFC Pre-Academy program is available for both girls and boys born 2011-2014 and whom are already participating in the 7U-10U ABYSA or Henderson County (HCSA) Recreation Programs.    In essence, the Pre-Academy sessions add an extra practice day during the week for those already playing with their teams.  Additionally, the program provides a platform to introduce players to a training experience consistent with ABYSA's / HCSA's next level of play (HFC 8U-10U Academy and HFC Classic). Participants will go to their recreation team practice one day of the week and then come to their assigned  Pre-Academy session for a second practice for 7weeks during the season. The program is offered during the Fall and Spring. Registration is open to all players born in 2011-2014.  Players born in 2011-2013 are also old enough for our 8U-10U Academy Program so please contact [email protected] if you'd like more information or check the Academy page here on the website for more info. 

The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) has identified the importance of early exposure to proper soccer skill techniques as vital to the growth and potential success of young players. We also feel that possessing the proper technical skills will not only prepare the players for the next level but, will, more importantly, increase their enjoyment of the game. That's why we designed the Pre-Academy program as a technical skill building program for players born in 2011-2014. This is our 16th year offering the program and the feedback from families has always been extremely positive. Each member of the Pre-Academy Program staff has played professional or collegiate soccer and is qualified to teach developmentally appropriate soccer material to ABYSA and HCSA youth soccer players.
