Academy Soccer

Soccer Academy

A "Soccer Academy" is a group of Under 7 through Under 10 registered NTSSA recreational players who desire to participate with other players without following the recreational team formation rules. Players must register with their home association and may or may not be on a recreational team. Academies are to be governed by NTSSA Youth Associations, and NTSSA Youth Associations may host as many Soccer Academies as they deem desirable. Academy teams are governed by the league in which they participate.

The purposes of the Soccer Academies are to:

- Provide recreational players who have aspirations of becoming a more accomplished player an avenue to test and enhance his or her skills.
- Provide recreational players an opportunity to train with experienced coaches.
- Provide recreational players an opportunity to investigate the level of play with which they are comfortable, which players they would like to play with, and for which coaches they would like to play.


Academy Player Registration Form

Soccer Academy play is in addition to recreational play. Players may join any Soccer Academy of their choosing within their age group, and are not required to obtain a release from their NTSSA recreational team to participate on an Academy team. Players must present a form of proof of registration signed by their home association registrar each time they participate with an Academy.

Players may join as many Soccer Academies as they like. No formal contract or written commitment may be signed by or on behalf of the player to commit a player to an Academy team. Players do not have to play recreational soccer to play academy soccer.
