A major focus of the Academy curriculum is that each player must come out of the Academy Program mastering the “Core Curriculum of Altitude FC.” These areas of technical training throughout the U8-U10 years prepares a player technically for the 11v11 game and sets player’s up to be successful individually as they progress in the game. The Academy Program offers additional training as a member of the club in the form of The Elite Players Academy, Juggling sessions, and opportunities to play or train with other teams in the program to gain additional touches on the ball.
All academy players will receive Staff Training Sessions. As a member of Altitude FC Academy Program we have one focus and that is to develop a player technically. We have built a proven model that will provide players the technical training to be able to succeed in the sport. We want players to begin playing the game with a style of play and to be able to be creative and confident on the field. The foundation of the club is within the Academy Program and we dedicate time, resources and top staff to prepare these players for the future. The U8-U10 2008 – 2010 Birth years ages we foster individuals learning and exploring the game. If players are developed then results will naturally take care of themselves in the time frame needed and will come when results are a priority for the team and the club.

For young players who are under 8 years of age but want a greater challenge and to prepare for the Academy program, our Jr. Academy fills the gap.

Jr. Academy training sessions are held one time per week and participants will also attend the Elite Players Academy Camp. The curriculum includes two player progress reports during the season to track skill development and to identify areas for further refinement.
