In the Competitive Academy, players will develop physical literacy skills to move like an athlete, develop a solid technical foundation as well as understand basic tactical situations. Players progress to the next academy based on their skill development and age. To practice what they learn, we organize competitive events where players can compete in a fun safe environment.
To register for any of the academy programs, contact Rufus Nel at 457-2346. We do not accept online registration for these programs.
