Pride is excited to announce our new Pre-Academy Training Program. This program is for Pride Recreational players born in 2017 and 2016 that are looking for additional training focused on technical, tactical, physical and psychological individual development.

Limited spots are available.



About the Program

The Pride Pre-Academy is a training program for Pride Recreational players born in 2017 and 2016 interested in additional training geared toward preparing players for the demands of the Junior Academy and Competitive programs. The goal of the Pre-Academy is to develop competitive, confident, technically-sound players through a structured training environment. The development of our players comes through age-specific curriculum which focuses on technical, tactical, physical and psychological training.

Players in the Pre-Academy program must also be on a Pride Recreational team and will practice and play games with their Recreational team.

“They always say, “it takes a village to raise a child”, and I wholeheartedly believe that. The Pride Family has helped shape my daughter through the love and concern shown by the coaches, the game, and the team concept. Thank you Pride family!”
