U8 Player Development Programs
The philosophy of the Empire City Soccer Academy and training program for our youngest players is all about spending time with the ball, building confidence and falling in love with the game.  It is called "Me and My Ball"

Typical Training Sessions will include every child with a ball. A Free play or a warm-up, including movement challenges and soccernastics (Soccernastics are fun activities with or without the ball which challenge a player’s coordination, balance, flexibility, ball skill and creativity.) -approximately 15 minutes.  Then we will move on to game-like activities, mostly body awareness and maze games. -approximately 15 minutes and Finish with a 3v3 or 4v4 game with two to four goals, no goalkeepers for approximately 15 minutes.

U10 Empire City Academy and Training Programs We place a high level of importance on the development of our players. We recognize that this is where the future begins and consequently, our priority in all of our soccer programs is the development of each and every player that attends. Our philosophy is to provide participating players with the environment to be taught the fundamental aspects of the game without eliminating the fun and enjoyment of it, which remains the most important element for success.  The development age of the participant is taken into consideration. There are challenges but they are achievable. This guarantees that each player experiences a raised self-esteem and most importantly, experiences the fun and enjoyment of this game.
