Academy Program Summary

FC NOVA Academy Program is designed for boys and girls falling into the U10, U11 and U12 age groups. FC NOVA's Director's of Coaching and the Director of Academy directs the program in accordance with NOVA competitive developmental program standards. The NOVA Academy program is the focal period to competitive soccer programming and offers players the opportunity to learn all aspects of the game from state and nationally licensed coaches. These players and coaches will be provided with professional training from the Director of Academy and assigned Academy Technical Staff coaches.

The licensed assigned individual age group team/pool coach/staff conducts additional practices outside of the Academy Technical Staff schedule. Players in the Academy play a FC NOVA U10, U11 or U12 IYSA league game schedule, along with other inter-league (vElite) and tournament (in and out of state - minimal) opportunities as assessed. There are not "tryouts/cuts" for U10-U12 Academy as there is a varying range of physical and mental growth points for players at this age.

Completion of the FC NOVA Academy program, the players will have developed the skills and insight necessary to have opportunities in the FC NOVA U13-U19 levels of play.
