Thank you for taken the time to sign up for evaluations for our Junior Academy Program.
CESA’s Junior Academy Program is designed to support and guide players who wish to make the transition from recreational to competitive soccer.
The program is designed for the advanced recreational player who has shown the desire and ambition to train and compete at a higher level. The Junior Academy Program at CESA is a great learning venue for our younger players and one in which they can develop a real love for the game. We feel the stronger their love for the game grows, the more chance that the player will spend more time with a ball at their feet.
Our players must be able to train in an environment that can test them. In order to play the game at a reasonable level we must continue to develop players with competent technical ability. Players do progress at different rates and our role is to be sure that they are receiving the correct instruction as they move through the Junior Academy program.
Cesa Junior Academy players will train 3 times per week with their assigned player pool. In addition we have an open training policy which allows those players who wish to train on a daily basis the chance to do so. We will always encourage our academy players to train on their own and watch as much soccer as possible. Ultimately CESA is committed to helping our players develop an interest in the game that will last a lifetime.
All current CESA Junior Academy players have been evaluated over the past 10 months. We will start evaluating NEW potential players next week (Schedule is below). We hope to take some of the pressure off of these younger players and to integrate the new players into 4 nights of training.
Thank you for the opportunity to work with your son/daughter.
