U7 / U8 Winter Soccer Academy Session 2017

Updated Tuesday December 20, 2016 by Soccer.

At Buckingham United, we recognize that there are many talented and dedicated U8 and U7 (born in 2009 and 2010) players playing CBAA Soccer.  With our Academy, Buckingham United offers a dedicated soccer environment to continue to nurture player development and prepare them for a higher-level soccer. 

Buckingham United aligns with the US Soccer mandated age group changes and player development initiatives and therefore encourages U7 and U8 players to commit to training at a recreational level.  Our Academy training offers players a supplemental training to their recreational teams.  Academy offers the opportunity to accelerate the technical development of players to prepare them to participate in U9 travel when they are eligible.  In addition, Academy provides U7 and U8 players the opportunity to train with Buckingham United Director of Coaching and Technical Directors.
