Spring Academy Programs
SPRING ACADEMY PROGRAMS
Surrey United Soccer Club prides itself on its focus on player development, enjoyment, and advancement. Our academy programming provides accessibility to players of all skill levels and experience in the sport. The objective of our academy programs includes a personalized skill development approach, that sets out to boost and maximize each participant’s self-confidence, enjoyment, technical skills, vision, and awareness, and overall understanding of the game.
Our academy training curriculums include a broad range of both technical
and tactical drills and skill development, speed and agility training, shooting
and finishing, techniques of defending, creative attacking scrimmage and game
opportunities, and more. Each program includes a curriculum developed from the
guidelines of the Learn to Play pathway and Canada Soccer’s Youth and Children’s
License philosophies and are tailored to meet the needs of each participant.
Our academies are led by our top technical team led by our Technical Director
Jeff Clarke and Assistant Technical Directors Ari Adams and Ronan Kelly.
Graduating academy players include both WCFC residency players and REX
players: Aleisha Ganief, Mikayla Tupper, Daniella Ramirez, Amanda Clauzel, Ireland Cox, & Keira Martin, Matteo Campagna, Jay Herdman, Joel Demian and Simon Colyn (17 years-old who has gone on to play with the Whitecaps FC MLS team), Christopher Torressan, Jordan Fehlhaber, and AJ Twells.
In addition to making all programs accessible to all, the Surrey United Academy Programs are extremely affordable in comparison to many other soccer academy programs and training programs in other sports. The SUSC executive is proud to be able to support the members of the SUSC academy in this way and strives to ensure that all interested players in the community have a chance to participate.
