TFA Willamette's U9-U10 Pre-Competitive Academy teams train in Albany, OR, and compete regionally against other soccer clubs from Corvallis, Eugene, Salem, and Bend to give our players their first experience against outside competition.
This 8-month commitment for our U9-U10 teams includes two 8-game league seasons (Mid July-Mid Nov. & Feb.-May) with 2 practices per week as well as possible friendly games and tournaments during these timeframes.
Our U9-U10 Academy players will also have the opportunity to train and play up with our U11 team through TFA Willamette's "Open Play" program to get a taste of what the next step of their soccer journey will be like.
TFA Willamette is the only full service youth soccer club in Albany, Oregon and the greater Willamette Valley that utilizes an integrated club model which requires the use of standardized curriculums, coaching methodologies, and style of play. This creates a clear path and progression for all of our players from 5 years old through to our high school-aged and senior-level teams.
These curriculums and methodologies also happen to be time-tested and proven at La Masia, Barcelona FC's world renowned youth soccer academy in Spain, and set the standard for both child development and player development.
We are always looking for players who have a passion for the game, a great work ethic, and a competitive nature. All dedicated players are welcome on our U9 & U10 Pre-Competitive Academy Teams. If you are interested please contact the Director of Coaching, Logan Hoffman, at Logan@TFAWillamette.com.
