Registration for  Fall 2018 Recreational soccer is open online June 1-August 6. More information is available in the article on the front page of our website. Players must participate in our recreational program in order to participate in the extra Academy training program. 

Changes to US Youth Soccer beginning with the Fall 2016 season

The Academy is designed to develop young soccer players through their formative years and to give them all of the ingredients they need to succeed in the game at the highest level. Players from an early age need to acquire the technical ability to master the ball and be proficient with both sides of their body. Players are placed into age and ability groups to train with expert professional staff, in addition to their core team. The coaches and staff of JFC will teach and develop these players to have the confidence, and the technical ability to enjoy the game and be successful at which ever level they find themselves upon their graduation from the Academy.


Through guided discovery teaching methods, the Academy program challenges each player to creatively solve problems that only the game itself can provide. It is the Academy's primary aim to make soccer FUN so that the vital ingredient of enjoyment is achieved at all times.

You may register online for the JFC Academy program thru our website. The cost is only $50 for the 6 training sessions run by the JFC Academy staff. The player must play within the JFC recreational program to be eligible to participate in the JFC Academy program. Registration information about our recreational program is available on the front page of the website.
