2022-23 Penhold Soccer Academy Enrolment
For the 2022-23 Academy year we will be accepting students born 2017 and older. The Academy year runs parallel to the school year. The Academy starts when children go back to school in September 2022 and continues throughout the year until they finish school in June 2023. The Academy operates both outdoor and indoor based on time of year and there are scheduled breaks that coincide with the school year schedule. Spaces at the Academy are very limited due to facility constraints and our philosophy of ensuring that every player at the Academy receives the same high level of coaching and instruction.
Players can join the Academy at anytime during the year as long as there are spaces available for the players gender and group. To find out if there is a space currently available for your player please complete any of the Inquiry forms on this page and we will check if we have space and send you the Academy Information Package to review.
The Academy Approach
We offer a principle based curriculum for grade school age players we help players improve their individual technical skills and at the same time learn how to play the game in a fun and motivating environment. All players are afforded the same high level of coaching/instruction and get an equal number of sessions and are coached by all of our Academy coaches. Come learn How to play in a fun, fluid and competitive program. If you want more than recreational level instruction but without the high cost and commitment of travel teams then we are a great choice for your player.

Our Player Development Model
Developing young soccer players is a complex task and there are many factors outside of the curriculum and activities that are used to teach the game. At United Soccer Academies, we have detailed all the factors that affect and influence a player’s development and we have put this into our own player development model. The different factors are dialled up or down depending on which stage of development an individual player as at and what they need to help them keep progressing. What we have found is that the coaches & curriculum only play a limited part in a player’s development. At the younger ages it’s actually all the other factors and we combine them – that helps development and keeps players in the game.

Please be advised that we do NOT hold tryouts in order to select players for the Academy or for any of our Travel teams. We do not reserve spaces they are allocated on a first come first served basis.
Academy Stages Not Ages
At our Academies players progress through 3 different stages based on their technical ability and tactical understanding of the game. This is a far better method than simply grouping players strictly by year of birth. As the players learn, improve and progress, the curriculum and what we teach changes and progresses too. Our curriculum starts out with a focus on technical ability and getting players comfortable with the ball. As soon as they demonstrate they have a good level of competency, they move straight into learning about the principles of the game and how to play.
