Youth Academy (Ages 3-7)


The Youth Academy is for children birth year 2017 (U4)-birth year 2013 (U8) and is part of Southwest MO Rush.  It is open to players of any ability. Professional directors Bruce Deaton (Evangel Women's Coach) and Hakim Tahiri (RUSH) oversee the volunteer and paid coaches who provide training 1-2 times per week, depending on the child's age. Teams will participate in 6-8 Lake Country Soccer league games mostly on Saturdays. Team shirts will be provided and medals given at the end of the season. We have fun while focusing on each player's development! Practices will be held on Tuesdays and we start August 18.

Fall and Spring seasons are both offered and players re-register for each season.
