Fall 2023 Programs
Pre-Academy (Birth Years - 2021-2018)
Our Pre-Academy program is a professionally designed and coached program delivered via our partnership with Mighty Kicks Southern Kentucky. As a key part of the SKY Player Pathway the Pre-Academy program is for our youngest players, and provides kids a fun, positive, first soccer experience that progresses players each season and year to prepare them technically and mentally for our YDP program. Players are taught skills and life lessons, while developing a love for the game under a player-first development framework, in alignment with the U.S. Soccer player development framework.
Our Pre-Academy GOAL MORNINGS Program (weekdays 9am-11am) (Birth Years - 2021-2018) is the same age and developmentally appropriate curriculum as the Pre-Academy Program, it just meets during the week in the morning (sessions are usually between 9am and 11am) rather than evenings and weekends. Goal Mornings participants are not divided into "teams", rather they practice as a group.
The Junior Academy Youth Development Program (YDP) (Birth Years - 2017-2016) is a bridge from Pre-Academy to our SKY Academy with all three programs developed and delivered by professionally licensed coaches. Following the SKY Player Pathway, players are pushed to reach their individual potential through technical training, a competitive playing environment, and opportunities to compete at the highest levels available to players in the region. SKY Academy prepares players to be successful scholar-athletes in high school and college through education on healthy lifestyle choices, the college recruiting process, and serving the community we live in.
Our Recreational soccer program (Birth Years - 2017-2005) is the largest in the state and our nearly 200 volunteer coaches foster teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play for kids of all ages and abilities. Our programs are not just for the player with high school, college or professional aspirations. SKY Soccer Club utilizes the beautiful game of soccer to provide rewarding and fun experiences for all players.
