ABOUT

CFC Academy will offer three options as part of our Player Development Program (PDP) this summer. Ball Mastery, Strength & Conditioning, Shooting & Finishing, and 5v5 Play Dates. All Summer Training will take place at Grimes Soccer Complex or Highland Park Commons.

We recognize summer schedules include a lot of family activities and times when you are out of town. These sessions are designed and priced with that in mind. If you are unavailable that is always okay.

WHAT TO WEAR

All players will wear navy training shorts, light blue training socks, and the gray Nike Dri-Fit shirt received at CFC Academy Tryouts. If you are joining the Summer PDP after tryouts or not a current member of CFC Academy, you will purchase the Nike Dri-Fit shirt at registration checkout.
