What is the Juniors Academy Program?


The Brooklyn Force SC Juniors Academy is a school year program designed for young players that are beginning to show a great love for the game, and those families looking for a bigger commitment to soccer for their children in a more challenging environment and more advanced coaching. The program is comprised of male and female athletes between    6 — 8 years of age.

The Program's primary objective is to maximize the development of every child

in each of the four elements of the game in a FUN & SAFE environment!

  • Technical - ball manipulation

  • Physical/ Mobility - coordination, balance

  • Mental - decision making, spatial recognition

  • Tactical - teamwork

This is done by using progressive methods of training to introduce new ideas and information in a manner that is easy to understand and apply by our youngest players. Furthermore, this program is an introduction to the Brooklyn Force Soccer Club and opportunities to prepare players to advance into the full competitive program starting at U9. The Juniors program starts in mid-September and finishes in late-May with breaks for holidays and time off from school.
