ALL GIRLS ACADEMY
The All Girls Academy (AGA) is an intermediate program emphasizing fundamental technical skills and tactics. The curriculum is age-appropriate and instruction is provided by qualified coaches under the guidance of the Academy director.
AGA is comprised of two different age groups: U9/10 and U11/12, though players outside of those age ranges may still play after an evaluation. The first week of the season is reserved for an evaluation period, after which, girls will be placed on teams based on evaluated skill level. There will be two practice sessions each week. The first of these sessions will include all AGA players, and the second session will be age group specific and team specific.
The goal of having all the girls practice together once a week is three fold:
- Give the girls confidence in their abilities
- Give the underdeveloped player a chance to get better by competing with players outside of their skill level
- Give the girls a chance to create friendships with other girls in the local community with similar interests.
Teams may change each season to enable the girls to ensure the teams are balanced and remain competitive.This league promotes local competitive play among teams within AGA, and all games are played at the YSI Sports Complex. There are two seasons: fall and spring. Player fees do not include uniforms. Uniforms must be purchased from SKV.
