WPU Youth Academy Program

The WEST PINES UNITED FC YOUTH ACADEMY PROGRAM provides a developmental bridge between recreational soccer and competitive premier soccer for U5-U10 age groups.

Typically the Youth Academy is for those players that excel at the recreational level and desire a more challenging environment that is more competitive with advanced coaching.


Youth Academy

Our Player Development Philosophy

West Pines United F.C.’s philosophy is to develop technically sound players in a fun and competitive environment while encouraging individual creativity. We want players to encounter soccer-specific problems and discover solutions, improvise and make decisions on their own during practices and games. The Youth Academy’s ultimate goal is to allow the athlete to learn the necessary skills and technique to develop the total soccer player.

The Academy curriculum is created by our West Pines United FC Youth Academy Director, and will help each player develop the skills necessary to compete on a high level. West Pines United Coaches will lead each training group, with a low player to instructor ratio (10:1).  The Youth Academy sessions consists of 18 (1 hour) training modules, and can supplement the players current recreational season.
