Fall 2019: Pre-Travel Academy




Fall 2019

The GFR Pre-Travel Academy





The Pre-Travel Academy is specially designed for 2012 and 2013 players (rising U8s and U7s) who are more serious about soccer, that excel in their teams and need a more competitive and challenging environment to develop as young athletes. The Pre-Travel Academy is designed to provide a competitive atmosphere while furnishing the players with positive experiences to nurture their self-esteem, confidence, and passion for the game.
 
Professional trainers will apply age-appropriate training curriculum focused primarily on foot skills, and the introduction of basic soccer concepts in order to offer highest development program for U8s and U7s.
 
We will form three Pre-Travel Academy pools, U8 Boys/ U8 Girls Full Academy (2012 Players),  U7 Boys/U7 Girls Full Academy (2013 Players), U7 Boys/Girls Part-Time Academy (2013 Players) for Fall 2019. The pools will train with professional staff during the season.
 
The U7 and U8 Full Academy pools will train 2 x week and will play against other clubs on the weekends.
 
The U7 Part-Time Academy pool will register with the GFR or Sterling Recreational programs in addition to the Pre Travel program. The U7 Part-Time Academy pool will train once a week with their Pre-Travel pool and play 2 to 3 PTA games against other clubs over the course of the season.

 
Please note: The 2013 (U7 Part-Time Academy) players must register for Recreational Soccer in order to participate in the Pre-Travel Academy. The players will train and play games each week with their assigned Recreational team in addition to the Pre-Travel Academy, unless less they register for the PTA Full-Time Academy program (optional). Your Recreational coach will contact you separately with the Recreational practice schedule and Saturday game schedule.
 
The Pre-Travel Academy pools will most likely become the base of the GFR U9 and U10 travel teams for Fall 2020.
