WMU Academy

WMU Academy

The WMU Academy Program aims to create a fun, friendly, challenging environment that helps develop creative young soccer players and instills a passion for & love of the game of soccer.

Academy players are immersed into an environment where the primary focus is on learning and developing each player's fundamental soccer skills, such as dribbling skills, 1v1 abilities, passing & receiving and shooting & finishing.  Players will work on and develop the skills necessary to take their game to the next level.  Training sessions will be fun and competitive to improve the skill level of the player. 

The Academy is a yearlong program that starts in the fall and runs through the spring.  Each player will receive seasonal, weekly professional training sessions; all 1 hour in length.  Players will participate in 2-3 club festival events along with participation in an Academy Invitational Play Day in March. 

 We provide U6- U8 (born 2013, 2014, 2015) year old soccer players the opportunity to continue participating in our intramural recreational league while having the advantage of supplemental, technical training provided by WMUSA professional coaching staff.

Players have the opportunity to move up to the WMUSA Travel Teams when they reach the U9 age group.

Our 2020-2021 season is currently accepting players into the program.
