U8 Academy

Registration is now open for WSA’s U8 Academy Program which will run from November through June and provides U8 players with a transitional pathway between the WSA grassroots recreation program and WSA’s more competitive travel program.

The U8 Academy includes practice sessions with a focus on technical development and tactical awareness. It also includes opportunities for game and tournament play.
