Foothills Soccer Club


Our U8 and U9 Jr. Academy programs are meant to be a players introduction to competitive soccer and to the Foothills Academy program.   Our Jr. Academy program is tailored towards those players who are further along in their soccer journey and who are looking for a bigger soccer challenge to meet their skills and enthusiasm. 

Each team will be coached by an FSC Academy level coach.  At these ages, we will focus on teaching soccer skills that will be foundational to playing Foothills style of possession soccer.  It will also be a moment to teach players how to train - focus, preparation, responsibility, fun.

We realize that, at these ages, players may have many different activities and sports in their lives.  To help accommodate for that, we split the season into 2 segments and players can sign up for either or both.  While we would love for players to play both segments, it is not mandatory.  

There are no tryouts for the U8 and U9 Jr. Academy age groups.  However, FSC may need to limit the number of players at each age group to ensure a healthy coach/player ratio.  


A typical week for the U8/U9 Jr. Academy in the Fall looks like.

2 – Practices per week - generally beginning in August.

1 – Game on the weekend - generally on Sundays, but this is dependent on the league we play in.

Jr Academy runs from August through October in Fall.  There could be a game or 2 in early November.


The Spring is separated into 2 parts:  Winter Futsal and Spring Outdoor season.  

Winter Futsal.  No Practices.  Games only. 
-  We target to play the Winter 2 Futsal session which starts in January and runs through February.  

Spring Outdoor Season.

2 – Practices per week - starting in February.

1 – Game on the weekend - generally on Sundays, but this is dependent on the league we play in.

Jr Academy Spring Outdoor season runs from February through April in the Spring.
