Academy Overview

 
Academy level soccer in Georgia is considered to be one step up from recreational level soccer and provides a good introduction to the player and family commitment required by Select soccer.

Our Academy program is designed to develop players (9U-12U) in a more structured and professional environment to give them the technical and tactical skills to prepare them for higher level competitive programs. Our aim is to develop individual players for the long term and not compromise for victories in the short term. For example, some coaches (and a great many parents) encourage younger players to play a long ball game because they are uncomfortable with their players under pressure at their own end of the field. This "long ball" philosophy is counterproductive to long term development. At Chiefs FC we allow our players to play from the back in order to keep possession. They will occasionally give up the ball and more goals may be scored on them in the short term, but they will be comfortable with the ball and technically more competent in the long term. Soccer is a game of mistakes, we will allow our players to make them and learn from them. This is a vital part of development.

All teams practice two nights per week and players may participate in the weekly supplemental technical training, speed and agility training and goalkeeping training offered by Chiefs FC to its members. The Academy typically plays matches on Saturdays during each season against Academy teams from other clubs in Metro Atlanta. A balance of home and away matches are played. Most teams will play two matches on game day.

Academy coaches specialize in developing the youngest players and sharing their love of the game. All head coaches hold youth coaching licenses and are compensated by Chiefs FC.

Chiefs FC strongly believes that the Academy Program is the best development option for children leaving recreational level programs. The training program is unmatched for preparing the youth player for higher level competitive programs.

Fees for the Academy Program are similar to those for a Select program and they reflect the higher level of commitment, training, and coaching provided to these promising players. The Chiefs FC fees include registration, uniforms, coaching fees, athletic training fee, referee fees and field usage. Players must also pay team fees in the spring and fall, which include variable team-specific costs such as tournament fees and travel reimbursements for the coach.

Chiefs FC also has a documented Academy Philosophy and Academy Curriculum, to read please click here: The Chiefs Way Academy We recommend all parents read these documents as they contains valuable information and outlines our proven Academy structure.
