The SA Athletic FC MICRO ACADEMY is an introductory club-level training program for boys and girls, in the <U6 age groups, who want to have fun learning soccer fundamentals and playing the game of soccer, no matter their initial skill level.
We are focused on the long-term development of each player by preparing players to learn and sparking imagination, and creativity, and emphasizing lots of application to individual ball control, technique, coordination, agility, and balance.
The program is designed to be a great experience for new players looking to learn and start their journey through their personal development process in the most positive and creative training environment.
We look to develop soccer players that become lifelong supporters of the game and tomorrow’s future leaders by encouraging our core values.
Each game allows the players to have fun while trying out new skills and allowing them to express themselves in a healthy, friendly, and challenging environment.
