Gorge Academy

Gorge Soccer is excited to announce our 2017 Winter Academy program.

What is it? Winter Soccer Academy is a skill based program for youth soccer players U9 – U12.  A combination of staff and team coaches work with young players combining drills and small-sided games to develop skill and game sense. 

Who can participate? Winter Academy is open to all registered Gorge players U9 – U12.  Participation in the Fall program is not required to register for the Winter session.
