TFA Cascades's U9-U10 Pre-Competitive Academy teams compete regionally in the OYSA Valley Academy League against other soccer clubs from Corvallis, Eugene, Salem, and Bend to give our players their first experience against outside competition.
This 6-month commitment for our U9-U10 teams includes two 8-game league seasons (August 1 - October 31 & February 1 - April 30) with 2 team practices per week at our Crawfordsville Facility as well as opportunities to train in Albany through our optional Striker School, GK Training, and Fitness Friday sessions.
Our U9-U10 Academy players will also have the opportunity to train and play up with our U11 teams through TFA's "Open Play" program to get a taste of what the next step of their soccer journey will be like.
Total Futbol Academy is the only full service youth soccer club in Linn County, 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.
Want to experience a whole new level of competition and soccer training that will push you to be the best player you can be? Mark your calendar for Tryouts in May 2019!
