Water Cities Soccer Club Academy Soccer!

Spring 2024 Session

Registration for Fall 2024 Academy Program is NOW OPEN!

Water Cities Academy is for kids who desire to take a step up from recreational soccer programs.  Our previous fall session had more kids/teams than ever and we're hoping for even more this session! 

Academy soccer is for the following age groups:

  • 8U Kids (Boys and Girls) born in 2016 and 2017
  • 10U Kids (Boys and Girls) born in 2014 and 2015

PRACTICES: We hold two practices per week.  They will be on TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS from 5:15-6:30  at Winnebago County Park starting April 9th (weather and field conditions permitting).


GAMES: Games will be scheduled each Saturday between April 27 and June 22 (except Memorial Day weekend).  All teams in our academy will play at the same location.  We won't receive an official schedule until just before the season begins, but you can expect most games to have a start time between 8:00am and 12:30pm. 

  • U8 plays 4 vs 4 games with no Goal Keeper
  • U10 plays 6 vs 6 games with an added Goal Keeper (7 vs 7)

Games will follow the US Soccer Small Sided Game Guidelines. You can read more about those guidelines HERE 

Our Academy Fee is a very reasonable $75/session until 3/24/24

The cost for families to participate in our Youth Academy is the best around.  Our small fee is for the entire spring season and includes a player jersey for all new players. The fee covers WYSA Insurance, referee and game fees, field painting and mowing, jersey cost, etc. Players will need to purchase navy socks (we sell them for $5 for those that need them) and get their own black shorts, soccer cleats and shin guards. 

What is the purpose of our Youth Academy?

  • Provide soccer players an avenue to test and enhance their skills.
  • Provide soccer players an opportunity to train regularly as well as play in competitive games.
  • Provide soccer players an outlet to increase their level of play against challenging competition.

Sign up now! PLEASE REGISTER BY 3/24/24 for $75 to lock in a roster spot for the Spring 2024 season! 

(After that our fees go up to $90 if space is still available. We cannot guarantee there will openings after March 24).
