What is the Academy Program?
The Academy Program is a full year old program that will provide the opportunity for athletes to train above the currently existing recreational program level. The Academy focuses at the U9 - U14 ages. Gorge considers the Academy as an important new level of training that will create a stronger pathway for athletes who may aspire to the “next level of play”. The Academy also increases program offerings from the Club and will make Gorge more competitive and attractive to both players and coaches.
The primary focus of our Fall program will be on individual technical skills and small sided games. Players will be grouped with like-minded and like-skilled peers. The Gorge Technical Director and the coaches from each age group will be coaching these sessions.
This program is targeted at the u9-u13 out players. Gorge will also address the development needs of the younger (u7/u8) players; older (u13-u18) players and keepers through other club-operated programs.
The structure of the Academy also requires qualified coaches; Gorge is committed to providing access to development and ongoing training for coaches within the Academy program. Additional training will ensure our culture is focused on developing individual player performance and a coach’s ability to identify and modify player technique. Furthermore, an ability to mentor is imperative to ensure our players and coaches reach their full potential.
