The Illinois Fusion Academy is designed with the latest youth development research from across the globe in mind. Our professional staff strives to create a positive environment where boys and girls can learn and experiment with new soccer skills in various activities and competitive match settings.
We accept new Academy players throughout the season. Please contact us for further information on how to get your player registered at firstname.lastname@example.org
Academy players will train twice a week for 1 hour and 30 minutes each session. Training will focus on teaching players the correct techniques to perform individual skills (dribbling, passing, shooting). Activities are designed to challenge the players to improve by allowing them to compete at a level appropriate for each player. In addition, we offer one optional Technical Training session per week too
Academy players will have a variety of opportunities to test their skills in competition. Illinois Fusion is part of the Central Illinois Youth Soccer League and will compete with teams in the league for both Friendlies and Festivals. CIYSL members include cities like: Peoria, Springfield, Champaign, and Decatur. Here is a further description of the types of competition in which Academy players will participate:
Festivals - Three to four times a season, Academy players will play against other multiple CIYSL clubs for 2 games on a Sunday afternoon. Games will be 4v4 or 7v7 for 25 minute halves. Teams are split by gender.
Friendlies - Players are divided into teams to play against another CIYSL club. Game format can be decided between the two clubs, but will not be bigger than 7v7.
Tournament - Players are divided into teams to compete for at least 3 games over the course of a weekend. Our first choice tournament will be the Illinois Fusion Spring Shootout, but other options may be considered.
We normally offer one additional tournament in the fall and one additional tournament in the spring
Play Days - On weekends void of other competition, coaches may arrange a time when players can come to fields to play pick-up games amongst themselves. This is often one of the most enjoyed forms of competition we offer!
We will have a parent meeting in the Fall/Spring to go over all the information you need.
