Program Description: The BRSC Academy is designed for the player that is looking for a highly structured environment.  All sessions are conducted by professional Academy Coaches that are follow the Academy Pathway and Curriculum.  

Training Format: Players are loosely divided by birth year for training day allocation.  Within each age group the players will be divided into training "pools" based on numerous factors.  Throughout the course of the season, pools will be created based on tiered (ability), parity, RAE, and bio-banding.  Our coaches adhere to a strict coaching paradigm created so that every child, regardless of ability, is facing an appropriate level of challenge.  Each season's training format will begin with 3 weeks of training in technical stations, followed by 3 weeks of whole-part-whole method, 4 weeks of Academy Session, and 2 weeks of “let them play” SSG’s.

Competitions:  All Intra-Squad Games (ISG)  will be played on Wednesday's 5:00-6:15 or 6:15-7:30pm (if needed).  These games are small-sided where we can manipulate the number of players, size of field, and conditions/restrictions of the games in order to highlight the Principles of Play that we want to focus on. 

Play Days/Festival (U9 - 2010 birth year) are a collaborative effort with Mandeville and Cajun Soccer Club in order to bring local Academy type programs together for competition. We use these play days as a stepping stone for the U10 program. There is little travel involved, with an opportunity for the directors of the programs to control the level of competition for each of the teams/pools. Festivals are informal tournament play. They are a collaborative effort with MSC and CSC; however, they are open to all programs in the area that would be interested in attending. All games will be round robin play with no playoffs. 

Player Kit: Academy players train in an all-black kit that can be purchased at Third Coast Soccer on Perkins.  All players will wear the kit for training and competitions.  It is advised that you purchase more than one jersey.
