Charlotte Soccer Academy - Palmetto

Palmetto - Youth Development Academy U8-U9

Palmetto – Youth Development Academy 

Program Description:  The Charlotte United-Palmetto Youth Development Academy is an exciting new program for young players who are looking for a more advanced soccer experience. The program focuses on individual player development in a fun and dynamic atmosphere. 

Why?  Kids will get more enjoyment from the game, continue to play soccer longer and are more likely to reach their potential if they are in a fun but challenging player-first atmosphere.


·  CUPFC Youth Development Academy Program uses an innovative curriculum that is continually improved and includes the best strategies from multiple coaching philosophies. 

·  The program’s goals are to develop:
(1)   Advanced Technical Skills
(2)   Individual Creativity
(3)   Soccer Savvy (the ability to outthink an opponent) 

Program Structure:

·   Players will attend a pre-season assessment

·   Players will train and play within a “player-pool” model rather than being placed on permanent teams.  This accounts for the fact that all players are maturing emotionally, growing physically and advancing skill-wise throughout the year at different rates and need to have flexibility in their development program. Training groups and game rosters are dynamic and could change from session to session at the coaching staff’s discretion.

·   The Youth Academy will be led by experienced coaches with coaching certifications from nationally-accredited organizations.

·    All players born in 2008 & 2009 (U8-U9) are eligible for the 2016-17 Academy Program.

Training & Play Dates:

·   Players will be expected to train twice each week during the season and will have additional training opportunities throughout the year.

·   Games/Play Dates will be scheduled on most Saturdays during the season.  The Youth Academy will play against groups from other Charlotte-area soccer clubs in a state association-endorsed festival format.  No scores or standings will be kept.

·  Charlotte United-Palmetto players will also have the opportunity to take part in optional festival, camp and event activities throughout the year.

·  Game formats will vary including 3v3, 4v4 and 6v6 (with goal keeper).

·  Training sites will initially include the Palisades Soccer Complex and a variety of Ft. Mill-area fields
