The U7 Academy is the entry level program within our new player development pathway which gives players the opportunity to begin working with the FC Virginia professional coaching staff in a supplemental training environment while also allowing players the opportunity to play recreational soccer with their friends!  Please note that there is NO game play for the U7 Academy program.  We highly recommend signing up for the U6  or U8 Recreational Soccer League (click here for information)

The U7 Academy is a supplemental training program that is offered year-round and introduces players to structured technical and small group training but is designed specifically to develop the individual players skills and comfort level with the ball.  

Participation in this program requires the participant to be registered in the FC Virginia Recreational League.  Players must also be invited to participate in this program either through our FREE Player ID Sessions or by recommendation by their Recreational coach or the FC Virginia Technical Staff.
