The Panthers United Academy (aka Travel Prep) runs every Fall and Spring season for our 7U & 8U eligible players.
The Panthers United Academy is a skill-based program designed for 7U & 8U aged children. The Academy serves as a preparatory program for Travel Soccer, which begins at the 9U age level. In the Academy program, players will continue to develop their basic skills of soccer (i.e. passing, shooting, movement), all while gaining exposure and experience to playing in the 7v7 game format.
The objective of the Academy is to prepare our players for the next level of soccer, our Travel Team program. The Panthers United Academy serves as the final stage to bridge the gap between small-sided game play and full-field 7v7 play.
Your Academy player will...
--As always, continue to build on their basic and fundamental soccer skills
--Begin to practice field positions and spacing skills
--Begin to learn field tactics
--Play interactive games
--Begin to learn the additional rules of full length fields
--And above all else have tons of FUN!!
