vanu fc academy programs
VanU FC Academy (players born in 2009 to 2005)
The VanU FC Academy is open to all current Vancouver United FC players U9-U13. Players must be participating in the regular season to register for our Academy. For insurance reasons, players must be registered to play in the 2017-2018 season.
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. We do not take requests for players to be in the same group as friends.
Training sessions focus on skill development, teamwork and age-appropriate tactical play. The programs are offered by Vancouver United FC and are run and administered by the Academy Director.
This year, the Academy will run on Monday evenings for all boys and girls aged U9-U13*
* If there aren't enough registrations in the U13 age group, we will make U12/U13 combination groups.
