U8 Pre-Academy

The goal of the U8 Pre-Academy is to provide a fun, enthusiastic and positive learning experience through practice and competition for the player’s first years of soccer. This program is geared toward children 7 and 8 years old.

All players will learn the rules of soccer and focus on improving individual technical skill of dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting in a team environment. Development will be stressed before winning, with a focus on long-term advancement.

Players entering at the U8 level will train weekly in Bowie, MD and participate in the PGSI Soccer League in Hyattsville, MD. The small-sided/4v4 games as played in the PGSI league are the best way to introduce the game to U8 players.
