U8 ADVANCED ACADEMY
$195 per season
The goal of this program is to identify those players currently at the U8 level who are ready to move out of our in-house recreation program and into one that is more challenging to their abilities. This is not a competitive team, however these players will jump-start into a program similar to our U9/U10 Academy. These players will compete in the CSA Front Range Recreation League as U8's playing up against U9's. They will receive the same level of coaching as our U9/U10 Academy that continues the club curriculum, introducing advanced concepts related to technical and tactical play.
This program is not intended for every U8 player. Our goal at FC Brighton is to put our players in the best environment possible in order for the player to develop and succeed. Therefore in order to determine which players would best be served for this program and those that would be better served for our in-house program we will be doing assessments. These assessments are not tryouts. Your child will have a place to play here at FC Brighton either in the Advanced Academy or in the in-house program!
The U8 Advanced Academy teams play other clubs in the area. U8 Advanced Academy players will be playing in Colorado Soccer Association's Front Range League in the U9 division. Most games will be played on Saturdays. Games will be at our home field as well as neighboring communities.
