Girl’s Competitive Information
The Jacksonville Armada FC Youth Academy Competitive program offers teams in every age group from U8 through U19 for those who are interested in a higher level of play. These teams are coached by qualified coaches that train and develop youth soccer players with the objective of having them reach their Club, Collegiate, Olympic, National Team, and Professional Soccer goals and aspirations. Our coaching focuses on skills development in the early years and tactical abilities in the later years. And while winning is always our coaches’ game objective, the development of our players is our primary focus.
Our goal is to develop each player and to ensure each player develops and improves year to year within our club.
The Jacksonville Armada FC Youth Academy program has grown to be the premier club of North Florida fielding many high level teams in both the Girls and Boys programs. JAFCYA has fielded many very successful teams winning multiple national and regional championships. Many of our players have successfully earned their way into college soccer programs and earned athletic scholarships.
