The Sunrise SC Academy Program: Where we lay the Groundwork
The Sunrise SC Academy Program is for all players from u9-u12 (born between 2005 and 2008).
The Sunrise SC Academy Program is a vital factor in our club’s growing success. It provides us with the infrastructure that stabilizes teams as they move into the 11v11 system. Our Academy Program is where our players learn the technical intricacies of the game and gain the love of the game. The program focuses heavily on ball mastery, and thoughtfully designed training sessions that begin to lay the groundwork for our athletes.
To be a part of the Sunrise SC Academy Program, every player goes through an annual tryout process in the month of May/June for the following annual season. Players are selected onto teams based on their appropriate skill level and in some instances are double rostered onto teams within their appropriate age groups to accommodate the growth of development. Our goal is to not turn away any child that is willing to be a part of this program. We may have multiple teams in an age group to help further every player’s development.
The Sunrise SC Academy Program is run by Coach Gui Gui and a staff of highly experienced coaches. The Academy staff prepares each training session following the training curriculum developed by club directors. The greatest development is believed to occur between the ages of 9 years old to 12 years old, which is why ALL of our Academy teams train at least 3 days a week.
