Introducing Competitive Rep at the Academy!
We have exciting news to share! For the first time, the Academy will host Competitive Rep teams during the 2023-24 season. The Competitive Rep program will be powered by Under Armour! Please read below Rep program details and information, including development strategy and general season outlook, followed by our Rep tryout schedule and registration details.
Our Competitive Rep program is focused on providing our athletes with a positive and encouraging environment where they can learn, develop, and compete at an optimal level. Each team will focus on fundamental player skill development as well as building a modern offensive strategy and defensive tactics which will form the foundation for our teams. Additionally, Competitive Rep teams are guided by principals of team play facilitated through a strong work ethic and being great teammates. We will strive for each team to be led by a Head Coach, an Assistant Coach, and a Team Manager.
