U9/U10 Academy

How it works: The DMSC Academy Program is a professionally managed developmental "pre-select" program for young players that are ready for the next step beyond rec soccer. At DMSC, we have developed a season curriculum, coaching methodology, and long term developmental plan, which is executed by US Soccer grassroots licensed coaches under the guidance of our Academy Director, Matt Ream.

Those participating in the Academy will train in one group 2-3 times per week and will be placed on game rosters for weekend games. Emphasis is learning to train, learning to be a good person and teammate, and HAVE FUN!

The Academy Program is the bridge between recreational soccer and select soccer for U9 & U10 players. There are no try-outs. Anyone who signs up can play. However, this tends to be a program for kids who like to play soccer at a higher level.
