A fun introduction to soccer
for players 3-8 years old
Fall Academy is a 5-week Saturday morning program focused on the development of soccer players age 3-8 in a fun environment. The program ends with our annual Pugg-a-Palooza soccer event. Sessions are generally held at Kennett Middle School. There may be one week that will be held at a different location due to a field conflict.
Soccer is fun and social. Our goal is to register 100 children into the program. Progressing alongside friends and making new ones is one of the best parts of youth sports. Spread the word and let's get as many aspiring soccer players as we can on the field this fall! Registration is open to children from any town.
