This very popular and successful program is entering its fourth year.  United’s Jr Copa Academy program is for players born in the year 2012 only.   This program is designed to provide opportunities for like minded players to train separately from their regular teams in preparation for United’s advanced programs when they become available in the fall of 2020.

The training’s focus will include improving all technical aspects of dribbling, passing, receiving, ball striking, 1v1 and 3v1 possession.

The training is conducted by United’s Nike Academy and Academy Directors of Coaching Barry Mantle and Felipe Quiroga.  The club will monitor the development of the players to help assist with player placement for future teams and programs.
