The Youth Academy program offers advanced recreational players and aspiring elite players the opportunity to discover a deeper passion to play and learn the game. Players will benefit from the fact that all training and games are conducted by a licensed FCD coach following our proven player development curriculum as well as entry into the Red Raider Academy.

The goal is to place each player in an environment that is suitably challenging but allows opportunity for success and confidence building.
