NEW United SC Momentum Academy

The NEW United SC Momentum Academy is the premier youth development program for U8, U9, & U10 (7-10 year old) players in the Fox Valley. The Academy program emphasizes developing the complete player in all 4 pillars of the game including: technical, tactical, physical, and psychological. Our program is designed specifically for those players who desire advanced training from professional staff. Through our program players learn to be comfortable with the ball at their feet, handle pressure, be organized, and to be tenacious while having fun as they develop a love for the game.

Commitment and Expectations

Because of the age of our players and the nature of Academy, nothing is truly mandatory, in that players will not be penalized in terms of playing time due to missing practices. Studies have shown that kids at this age benefit more from playing multiple sports than specializing in only one. We expect players to miss occasionally in order to fulfill other athletic or familial commitments. Obviously, they only get something out of our program by showing up, but they are expected to make what they can make.

When a player is available for a game or practice, they are expected to show up at the prescribed time. We will be using online software to track player availability and attendance at events. Please be sure to stay up to date and in contact with your manager in order to ensure proper groupings. 

U7-U9 Momentum Academy players will have two practices per week on Tuesday and Thursday. U10s will have an additional pool practice with the U11 Developmental Team once per week. Nights and times will be determined at a later date. 

All players will get at least one game per Saturday play date and we will be playing in two tournaments. One away and one at home (Oktoberfest, October 2-4). We will also be setting up a friendly with a couple clubs from Madison here at USA and will potentially be playing in the Wisconsin Academy Mega Date in the Milwaukee area.

For families, there are volunteer and fundraising requirements which help keep costs down and allow us to continue to sport one of the best soccer facilities in the Midwest. More information on these can be found here.
