Kickers (U6-U7)

Kickers are our oldest pre-schoolers. Kicker sessions meet once per week for an hour with UK Elite trainers. Sessions consist of lots of touches on the ball and continued development of fundamental skills, followed by 30 minutes of scrimmage.

Kickers have one weekday practice and one weekend game.

Academy (U8)

The Academy program is the last age grouping leading into Cougar Travel Teams. Our Academy players (age 8) continue to build on the fundamentals of the game. They meet with UK Elite trainers twice a week for one hour training sessions. They play modified, small sided games against other Academy teams on one weekend day. The players are introduced to rules, positions and real game play. Sportsmanship and team play are emphasized. The games are refereed by the same trainers the players practice with during the week, and supervised by volunteer parent coaches.

Academy boys and girls have two weekday practices and one weekend game.
