Academy Program

Bridge to Academy Program


  • The bridge to academy program is a developmental program to help players transition for recreation soccer to academy soccer. 
  • The bridge to academy program will include boys and girls that are U7s and U8s. For Fall 2021 these players will be born in 2014 and 2015. 
  • The bridge to academy players training sessions will be focused on technical development (1v1 dribbling, passing and receiving, finishing, and defending) with tactical understanding (keeping a team shape, understanding their position on the field.)
  • Training is performed by trainers under the direction of the AFC Lightning Griffin Club's Director of Coaching.
  • Bridge to academy teams will be placed in divisions that will challenge them to grow while promoting success. 
  • Most teams will play in our in-house leagues, some may possibly play in our area U10 league.
  • Bridge to Academy tryouts will be held on May 13 from 6-7pm at Tyus Park field 4.
  • The fee for the Bridge to Academy program is $190 per season plus uniform.
