We offer a co-ed league for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten and 1st grade! The sessions, which are held primarily on Sundays, follow a unique format that emphasizes fun and learning! The “Juniors” first receive 24 minutes of professional training from Elite FT and then put what they learned into a 24 minute game against another team.

Recreational League | 2nd - 8th Grade

The Sports Academy offers indoor youth leagues to three distinct skill levels:

  • Premier - Jan/Feb (Formerly known as Competitive #2) – Designed specifically for teams that play Select/Club soccer. We strive to have 2 divisions in age groups when enough teams register as this division will have all club teams: top, middle and bottom level

  • Competitive - Nov/Dec (formerly known as Competitive #1) – Designed for teams competing in middle to lower level select leagues as well as top recreational teams looking for a challenge.

  • Recreational #1 (Nov/Dec) and Recreational #2 (Feb/Mar/Apr) – The recreational division is exclusively for recreational teams.  No club affiliated teams should sign up for this league regardless of record or time spent as a team in a select club.

Designed for area Park and Rec teams. Club/select teams belong in our Competitive division. We reserve the right to move you from this league to Competitive if necessary. We create the two youth leagues to ensure even skill and competitive games for all teams.

High School League

The High School League is competitive league for soccer players looking to focus on fitness and improve skill during their off-season. To protect the integrity of the league, special rules have been created in the High School Division. We are no longer offering a 'fun' high school division. All teams must represent a club or high school. If you're not sure whether or not your team fits in, please email info@thesportsacademy.net and ask. Teams who do not ask and are not a soccer team and represent a club or high school and cause problems may be removed without a refund. Safety is always first at TSA.
