ACADEMY OVERVIEW

The BUSC Soccer Academy offers a program specifically designed for young players (U5/U6 Coed) to develop a love for the beautiful game. Through a fun and inclusive atmosphere with occasional parent involvement, we introduce them to the basics of soccer (futbol!).

For our pre-competitive Junior Hammers & Lady Hammers U7/U8 teams, the academy builds upon the foundation laid at Little Hammers and Lady Hammers U5/U6.  These programs prepare players for potential future involvement in our competitive teams.  Our experienced coaches provide "travel team" level instruction in a technically sound way, focusing on fun and skill development without the travel or expense of a competitive program. By keeping team sizes small, coaches can offer personalized feedback, reinforcing core skills, soccer terminology, and the essential fundamentals of the game.
