VanU Academy - Fall

The Academy is VanU’s professional coaching arm.  It is responsible for program, player and coach training and development for all youth players, teams and coaches. The Academy also develops and operates additional training programs for those players wanting enhanced skills and tactical training. It operates under the oversight of the Technical Committee which reports through the chair to the Board of Directors. It is run by the Technical Director who reports to the Executive Director.  The Technical Director hires professional Technical Lead coaches and staff coaches to develop and operate its programs.  The Academy supplies professional staff to assist in the operation of First Kicks and Divisional teams. The Academy attempts to offer extra training programs for all levels of play if there is sufficient demand.  These programs are offered in the evenings during the week while in season.  It also offers week long daytime mid-term break and summer camps.

The VanU FC Fall Academy is open to all U9-U13 VanU FC players (born between 2011 to 2007). For insurance purposes, players must be participating in the regular season to register for our Academy.


  • Please note that we do not take requests for players to be in the same group as friends.
  • U11-U13 boys and girls VanU Plus teams DO NOT need to register as Fall Academy is already included in their registration fee.
