TYSA offers an Academy Junior soccer program for both boys and girls ages U6, U7, & U8.  The program bridges the gap between the TYSA Recreational Program and the TYSA Academy Program. We recognize that there are many talented and enthusiastic players looking for a more focused environment in which to grow their skills.  Academy Jr provides additional challenges in a more structured soccer format and is intended for participants in the U6, U7 & U U8 age groups who possess good basic soccer skills and desire to excel. Players in this program are exposed to a more challenging and competitive environment than recreation. The primary focus is on developing the correct technical and basic tactical elements that are needed to graduate into the U9-U12 Academy program.
