Program Info


The goal of the ABYSA/HFC Academy Program is to provide select Under-9 and Under-10 players with the opportunity for accelerated development in the individual skills that soccer players must have to achieve a higher level of play. It is expected that more 10U players than 9U players will be developmentally ready to benefit from this program; however, both age groups have the opportunity to be selected. 9U and 10U is the golden age of learning for young soccer players, and ABYSA/HFC commits its best professional coaching resources to this program as a result.

ABYSA/HFC Academy Coaches have significant coaching and playing experience at the collegiate and even professional levels. Many of the Academy Trainers who work in this program also work in the Highland Football Club (HFC), the Competitive (Classic) Division of HFC. Academy players will train with our elite coaching staff twice each week and will play games on the weekend.


Any players who were born in 2008 and 2009 are eligible to tryout/play in our Youth Academy.
