First Touch Academy (NEW)
Jacksonville Armada FC Youth will be changing the format of our U5 and U6 programs next fall. Next year all U5 (2015) and U6 (2014) players who register with the club will be placed in the First Touch Academy. The First Touch Academy will offer families the option of one or two practices a week plus a game on Saturday. The practices will be directed by a JAFCYA trainer and assisted by parent volunteer coaches. The focus of the First Touch Academy will be to instruct young players to “control it” rather than “kick it”.
Parents will have the option to have their child practice once or twice per week and all participants will play a game on Saturday.
Practice choices will be:
Monday @ Ed Austin Park
Tuesday @ Patton Park
Wednesday @ Ed Austin Park
Friday @ Patton Park
The cost for an eight week season will be:
$120 for one training session and one game per week
$165 for two training sessions and one game per week
There will also be a uniform fee (we are in the process of finalizing the uniform cost).
Current U6 (2013) players will have the option next year to play U7 recreational soccer with parent volunteer coaches or in the U7 Junior Academy Program with paid club trainers.
