FAQ's

What is the difference between Development Academy & Academy Team (Player Pools)

Development Academy is offered for U5-U10 age groups as a skill development program for individual players.   We offer in 6 week increments, one night per week for one hour, with one play date at the conclusion of the program.  Anyone can register of any skill level at any time for this program.  Player can be selected to move into our competitive academy teams through an evaluation process on a year round basis in the Development academy.   

Competitive Academy Teams (Player Pools) is the first step into our competitive/travel level of Clarksville Soccer Club.  

The TN soccer association mandates that youngest age of players that can play competitive/travel soccer against outside opponents for the 2019-2020 season is 2012 birth year.  The 2012 group does not really travel during this first initial year.   In an effort to keep costs down and focus on developing the pool of players to be competitively ready,  we operate our U8's (2012) as mostly an "in house" with competitions  so there is minimal travel involved.  We introduce travel to play outside competition more regularly at U9.  Clarksville Soccer Club does offer pre-travel transition for select 2013 players based on evaluations through our Development Academy  where they can be invited to train up with our 2012 age group and prepare them for the next season.

We have licensed, paid coaches who train and coach the players in all practices and games.  We also have parent assistants who receive coaching education and grass roots licensing who assist with the Academy age groups.  The season runs from August-May (2019-2020).      

 

WHAT IS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY (DA)?

The development academy is an individual skill training program available to ANY player between ages U5-U10.  It is a great program to learn the fundamental ball mastery and enhance individual development.  This program is great for beginners or recreational level players looking to transition to competitive/travel level soccer.   It is also a great supplement to any player who is just looking to improve their skill level. 

We do group players based on age and ability to create a challenging environment for all.    We do also have ongoing evaluations available for selection to our U7/U8 pre-travel competitive academy teams and U9, U10 competitive travel teams through our Development Academy Program. 

We offer 3 segments per seasonal year (Fall, Winter, Spring).  Players do not have to participate in all three segments.   Our enrollment is open and available on a year round basis.  New players can join at ANY TIME!  

Program Features:

  • One training session per week   
  • Players grouped by age and ability  
  • Jamboree (GAME DAY) once every 6 week segments (3v3/4v4).  
  • Excellent Staff/Participant Ratio
  • Professional, Licensed Staff Coaches
  • Curriculum design modeled after USYS PDI & Grassroots Pathways

WHAT IS SELECT/TRAVEL ACADEMY POOL TEAMS?

Clarksville Soccer Club forms ACADEMY COMPETITIVE TEAMS beginning at the U8 (2012) age group.  

Evaluation is required to be considered for selection to an COMPETITIVE ACADEMY TEAMS.  Evaluations for Academy Age teams are available on a year round basis by contacting our academy director.  

Following evaluations players who are selected will be invited to join an ACADEMY team.  Players who require further development are referred to our Development Academy and undergo continued evaluation.
