The RYSA Pre-Academy program is geared towards boys and girls in the U7-U10 age group who have excelled at an early age in the game of soccer, demonstrating good basic soccer skills. The focus of this group will be to bridge the gap between the RYSA recreational program and the academy program where sessions would be conducted in a more structured manner by RYSA Academy and Select coaching staff. The program will challenge the players to develop their technical skills as players will spend a lot of individual time on the ball.
The players will train and play on selected Fridays and Sundays. This season we will be taking part in an end of season tournament for pre academy teams.
