Incoming U10s (2012) and U11s (2011) - Age Group Academies


We will run an Age Group Academy on either Monday (boys) or Tuesday (girls) for all players interested in travel for the fall of 2021 and spring of 2022.

We will offer all parents an opportunity to take part in a virtual town hall on Wednesday April 14th, starting at 730PM. During this townhall we will explain the process in place that helps form our travel teams in these 2 age groups. We strongly encourage parents to take part in the call to get a better understanding of the process in place.
 

Current travel players:

All current travel players are expected to take part in their weekly practice session. No additional registration is required.
 

Non travel player:

All non-travel players interested in travel need to sign up for the program: Register Here for the Age Group Academy
 

Over the course of the 8 weeks all teams / groups will be exposed to different coaches to be assessed/evaluated. The curriculum used will be based on the key concepts that the players need to have a good understanding of at this age. This set up will allow us to gather important data/information, to help place all players accordingly.

In addition to the academy evaluations, we will also ask the head coach and professional coach for each team to fill out a player evaluation. These evaluations are also part of the decision-making process. For Intercounty players, we will solicit evaluations from our Intercounty trainers. 
 

Please do note that the program set up will align with our return to play protocols. As part of these protocols we require every player to complete an online health questionnaire before every session. This must be completed on the day and prior to arriving at the field. Here is the link.
