Tri-County Junior Academy Program


  • What

    The Tri-County Junior Academy program (U7/U8 age group) is geared towards developing and improving a player's technical and tactical skills in a safe and fun environment. Games will be against teams in the Southern MD Tri-County area. The program is run by licensed adult coaches with volunteer assistant coaches. There are typically two academy style practices during the week limited to those in this program along with competition style matches on weekends (Weather Permitting).

  • When

    Players will meet for practice(s) during the week based on availability of licensed coaches. You will be contacted by your player's coach or a league representative at least a week prior to the regular season beginning with your player's practice location/day(s)/time. Coaches will inform team of game schedule once released. Games are usually held on Saturdays and/or Sunday afternoons (weather permitting).
