RYSA Revolution U8 Pre-Academy Spring Program

The RYSA U8 Pre-Academy program is geared towards boys and girls in the U7-U8 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 will be conducted in a more structured manner by RYSA professional coaching staff. The program will challenge the players to develop their technical skills as players will spend a great deal of time mastering ball manipulation.

The players will train on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning the first week of February with game components beginning the first weekend of March.  Training, scrimmages within the Pre-Academy program, and matches with outside clubs will be organized and implemented by a RYSA Academy or Select staff coach.

The RYSA Academy Program

The RYSA Academy Program operates as a member of Georgia Youth Soccer Association’s developmental soccer program for U9-U12 boys and girls. The idea behind Academy is to give young players advanced coaching and a higher level of competition, alongside other players and parents who want to see their child develop his/her potential in a fun soccer environment. Academy philosophy is playing to learn while minimizing the pressure of playing to win.

The Academy program is an intermediate step to full sided select soccer which starts at the U13 year. All RYSA Academy coaches are licensed and experienced in preparing players of this age for the next step of select soccer. Training activities are devised to help each player improve technically (skills), tactically (as a member of a team), physically (coordination & fitness) and psychologically (mental development).  The Academy focuses on the complete development of each player and education of the parent on the philosophies of developmental soccer.
