Spring 2020 Junior Programs

Competitive Academy

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.

Red Ball Academy 5 - 7 years

Committed to training to compete provincially and nationally players in the performance academy develop their technical, physical, and psychological skills to be able to better execute tactical decisions to take their game to the next level. A yearly plan is designed for the performance players to help them with periodization to maximize performance to coincide with important competitions.
