The VanU Academy is open to all players U9-U15. These programs are geared to those players who are interested in a competitive and tiered development program. The Academy philosophy is to place like-minded and like-skilled players together, allowing players to train and develop in an environment suitable to their current ability. 

Training sessions focus on skill development, teamwork and age-appropriate tactical play. The programs are offered by Vancouver United FC and is run and administered by the Technical Director in 3 separate phases: Fall, Winter and Spring. 

Note: All players participating in the Academy must be registered in our regular season soccer program. The Academy is a supplementary training program and does not replace our regular season play.
