West-Mont's Futures Academy aims to create a fun, friendly, challenging environment that helps develop creative young soccer players and instills a passion for the love of the game of soccer. Academy players are immersed into an environment where the primary focus is on learning and developing each players fundamental soccer skills, such as dribbling skills, 1v1 abilities, passing & receiving and shooting & finishing.
Players will work on and develop the skills necessary to take their game to the next level. Training sessions will be fun and competitive to improve the skill level of the player.
The Academy is a year-long program that starts in the fall and runs through the spring. Each player will receive seasonal, weekly professional training sessions; all 1 hour in length. Players will participate in 2-3 club festivals/ play-date events in the fall and spring seasons.
For the 2023-24 season, we provide U7- U8 (born 2016 & 2017) players the opportunity to continue participating in our Intramural program, while having the advantage of supplemental, technical training provided by West-Mont professional coaching staff. Players have the opportunity to move up to the West-Mont Travel teams when they reach the U9 age group.
