Rising Talent Program


The Rising Talent Program follows our Recreational Player Development Pathway and is designed to support FCVA players in the U8-U10 age groups.

The mission of the RTP Program is to continue to support players who desire to improve in their individual and small group soccer skills but that are not ready to make the jump into our competitive pathway (U8 Academy and TSJFCV Travel Program) but aspire to reach the competitive level by U11.  

It is important for us as a club to understand and embrace that not every player is ready for the time commitment and not every family is ready for the financial commitment of competitive soccer at U8, U9 & U10.  The RTP program is our commitment to our members that you have a partner in your son or daughters soccer development.

The RTP model mirrors that of the U7 Academy in that it is a supplemental training program that works in conjunction with the FCVA Recreational Program.  Participants must registered as part of the FCVA U8, U9 or U10 recreational leagues to be eligible to participate.

Participation in the RTP Program is by invitation only.  Players will need to participate in one of our FREE Talent ID Sessions or be recommended by their Recreational coach or a member of the FCVA Technical Staff.

To request an ID Session please contact the Academy Director, Adam Baumgardner at:
