Fondy Phoenix Academy: WYSA SECL Academy League Play

Academy League

The Fond du Lac Soccer Association is a WYSA accredited academy program and is part of the WYSA SECL Academy League for U9 (Born 2014) and U10 (Born 2013).  These teams will participate in regional academy league games in the fall and spring (6 games) and participate in 1-2 tournaments each season (fall and spring). Regular fall season schedules are typically available mid-August from WYSA and it is up to each team/coach what nights and times they practice based on what works best for that team and conclude in late October. In the spring the season begins mid-April and concludes mid-June. 

The cost to participate for the fall season for academy league is approx $200 per season plus the cost of a uniform (approx $125). If you have a uniform from last season, you should not need to purchase a new one. For those new to the program, this fee includes all player and team fees from the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association, East Central District, Referee Fees, League and Tournament Fees, and coach, training, field, and equipment fees. If you opt to play in the spring as well, the fee will be reduced based on one-time costs from the state and district for player and team fees. Registration for spring season will begin after the fall season is complete.

Training will begin for Academy in early August twice per week with 6 regular season games (typically on a Saturday or Sunday) in September and October. Each team will also play 1-2 tournaments in the fall. Each player will also have the opportunity to attend our Pre-Season Training Camp August 1-4 at the Fond du Lac Soccer Complex ($150). 

We hope you consider registering to play in the Fond du Lac Youth Soccer Academy League! If you have any specific questions, please reach out to me at anytime.

Academy Training

The Fond du Lac Soccer Association "Phoenix Academy" is a program available to girls and boys in the U9 and U10 Age Groups based on Birth Year. Soccer Academy programs are designed to bridge the gap between recreation league and select (competitive) league play focusing on player development from professional coaching to create the best possible environment for our youth soccer players to excel once they reach the select level at U11. 

The Phoenix Academy  focuses on these key areas: Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychosocial.
