The THUSC Junior Academy
is for boys and girls born between 2011-2013 (U8, U9, U10), who are looking to advance in their development and prepare for the competitive soccer transition. The program is rooted in building enjoyment and fun in the game, while teaching players the technical fundamentals they will need as lifelong players. THUSC Junior Academy members are led by our experienced and professional THUSC coaching staff.

Our priorities of development for players in this age range include:
- Technical ability
- Team concepts, including individual responsibility to the team
- Age appropriate tactics
- Physical fitness
- Love of the game
- Enjoyment of sport and competition

Through these developmental aspects, our goal is to build a life-long love of the game and set up each child for success in their long-term player development.

2020-2021 AGE GROUPS

U10 = 2011
U9 = 2012
U8 = 2013


The THUSC Junior Academy
operates on a seasonal basis, allowing families to choose the seasons of participation that work for them. Sessions are held Summer/Fall, Winter (futsal) and Spring. THUSC provides the opportunity for our young players seeking out a more competitive and focused program, year-round or for one, two or three seasons. Our teams will practice two times a week with a game on Sundays in the OYSA league. They will also have the chance to participate in 2-3 fun tournament events (separate fee) during the summer season.
