For the Spring 22 season, we will be offering two separate programs for 2014 birth years.  These programs will be separated into two 3 week blocks.

Program 1 will be open to all 2014 birth year players.  Players that are interested in playing at the Copa Academy level should definitely participate.  These programs are used to help identify players ready for the next level of play and commitment.

Program 2 will be in a league play format and invite only.  Players can be invited into this program by different avenues, e.g. participation in previous programs (priority), being observed during regular season games and coach feedback.  Teams will be formed randomly and can change from week to week.  The emphasis of the league is to place similar minded and ability players together in preparation for the Copa Academy program and  ID Days.  The culmination of the program will include players invited to an end of season tournament over Memorial weekend.

Both of these programs will be managed by Dan Cheeseman, Copa Academy Director of Coaching and Barry Mantle, Competitive Technical Director.
