Welcome to the Weston Soccer Development Academy (“Academy”), your child’s first step into competitive soccer
representing the town of Weston. The Weston Soccer Club, Inc., (“WSC”) is pleased that you have chosen to participate in
our program, and we hope that you and your child will enjoy the experience and gain valuable knowledge about the game.
WSC believes that the establishment of a strong training program with a formal curriculum for young players is the
necessary first step in ensuring that all of our players learn the skills they need to be successful on the soccer field.
The creation of the Academy mirrors on a smaller scale the efforts of the U.S. Soccer Federation, which recently appointed
Claudio Reyna to the post of national Youth Technical Director with the directive of creating curricula for young players.
The concept behind the Academy is also reflective of youth academies that have been established by major professional
clubs around the world.
The Academy will span your child’s U9 and U10 years and is designed to help develop the individual soccer
player by building confidence through a fun and challenging environment. Before this season starts, please be aware that
winning is NOT everything, and the only GOALS that count are the individual goals set by the coach. Like all youth
academies around the world, the Weston Soccer Development Academy emphasizes development of the individual player’s
skills and confidence with the ball.
Once again, welcome to Weston Soccer Club and its Development Academy, and we hope that you enjoy many years of
happy soccer in Weston.
