Program Information

The U6 Kinder Academy is specially designed for U6 (players born in 2018) players who are more serious about soccer, excel on their teams and need a more competitive and challenging environment to develop as young athletes. The U6 Kinder Academy is designed to provide a competitive atmosphere while furnishing the players with positive experiences to nurture their self-esteem, confidence and passion for the game.

The U6 Kinder Academy serves as a stepping stone to the Pre-Travel Academy (U7-U8), which is a bridge program between recreational soccer and travel soccer. This program provides a pathway of development for preparing players for entry into travel soccer at U9.
