What is the BRSC Academy? The BRSC Academy is committed to bringing more technical expertise into the U7, U8, and U9 programs by creating a curriculum of instruction specific to developmental needs at each age group level. The BRSC Academy curriculum follows a progressive model based on key developmental needs that have been identified for each age group. The BRSC Academy trains in age-appropriate training pools throughout the week. However, teams will still compete in local BRSC leagues.
BRSC Academy Mission The BRSC Academy is… An alternative to the traditional recreational team program. It offers boys and girls age 6-8 years old the opportunity for advanced development in soccer through a progressive and sophisticated curriculum and unique academy structure. Structured so that players train in age group pools instead of teams. The unique pool training structure provides maximum opportunity for players to develop solid fundamentals as individuals before progressing into a team environment. As players progress through the Academy age groups the focus of the pool training moves from individual development to group and team training. Committed to providing the correct environment and structure to create a well-rounded, competition-ready player. The BRSC Academy follows a training curriculum that is innovative, challenging, and FUN. The unique structure of the Academy and the distinctive nature of the curriculum is conducive to optimum player development.
