ECU 8U Academy Program

Eau Claire United is offering a new program for 2015 and 2016 birth year players (8U) designed to provide technical training and playing opportunities in a safe and engaging atmosphere. The skills gained through this full-year program can be used within inter- and intraclub games as well as in the AYSO environment.

Season Plan

Players will train at the Soccer Park on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:45 pm for the Fall and Spring/Summer seasons, as well as Wednesday evenings indoors (location tbd) from December-March.  All trainings will be co-ed.

Additionally, weekly games will be arranged for Saturdays or Sundays during the Fall and Spring/Summer seasons. Minimal travel will be required, with only a few single dates with 'away' games within the region.
