The RAGE Recreational Youth Academy provides a unique learning environment for recreational players to develop fundamental soccer skills. The goal of this Academy is to foster a passion for soccer and a greater understanding of the game while building a solid foundation of basic skills and technique. This training will add in elements to prepare young players for upcoming competitive placement (tryouts) for the 2019 season.  Players are welcome to attend whether or not they are planning on trying out for a competitive team. We are also adding goalkeeper training to our Recreational Spring Academy for players that are interested in receiving goalkeeper training from our competitive Goalkeeper Director, Brittney Cameron. Goalkeeper training is for players with 2008, 2007, 2006, and 2005 birth years.

The Recreational Youth Academy is open to all RECREATIONAL players with 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007 birth years.  This is a great way for players to continue improving throughout the spring months.
