Academy Program

The T&C Soccer Academy is the second step on the Player Development Pathway at T&C Soccer, it forms a bridge between the Recreational and Select programs.

Academy (U8 - U10)

Our Academy program is the second step on the Player Development Pathway at T&C Soccer. It forms a bridge between the Recreational and Select programs. This program has grown season over season since the Fall of 2021.

The program is built upon a player centric model where individual development is our primary focus. We teach the players the technique and tactics they require to enjoy the beautiful game in a competitive, developmental environment.

Our coaches work from the US Soccer Training & Planning Curriculum in order to make sure the players are being taught the appropriate information for their age, all sessions are built around the four pillars of the game; technical, tactical, physical and mental.

Children participating in the Academy will be placed on teams according to their skill level. Teams are be formed during the first week of practice and coached by paid/professional coaches. Academy games are played at T&C Sports complex and potentially within the greater Austin area.
