The Club X Academy had some exciting changes that were implemented during the Spring 2017 season to very positive reviews form the parents and players! The Academy Director is Shawn Woods and the Academy Technical Director is Jim Lamb and they're back for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 seasons.

The Club X Academy is a small-sided developmental soccer league designed specifically for U4-U9 boys and girls. The Academy provides training opportunities not always available in rec programs. In addition, the players get to acquire their skills in small-sided games, with small fields, and small goals. This provides a lot of touches on the ball and the inability to 'hide' during a game.
Here is what one mom recently sent us: "I just wanted to let you and the other members of the Academy Staff know that my son is learning so much. He has gotten so much better and is having a lot of fun. Are you going to do the training this fall? They don't do any training where our son was playing at before. We will be back in the Fall. If my son chooses soccer as his sport, then the Academy will give him the opportunity to move on to the next level."
