The 2023-2024 U8 Academy Program is open to boys and girls born in 2016. It will run from November through June and provide U8 players with a transitional pathway between WSA’s recreation and WSA’s competitive travel programs. The U8 Academy Program will also reinforce technical and tactical skills. Practices for the U8 Academy Program will focus on individual skills and small group play, which are essential for good personal and team performance. The Program also includes opportunities for game and tournament play. NOTE: The 2023-24 U8 Academy is exclusively for 2016 birth year players.
