Blount United Academy

Overview

The Blount United Soccer Academy program focuses on setting the basic foundations of skill and technical play.  Practices are fun, engaging, and geared towards preparing players for our Boys and competitive soccer program.

This program allows young children to learn the game of soccer from paid, licensed coaches and volunteers. Our club provides a higher level of instruction than they would normally experience on a parent-coached recreation team. Academy athletes are introduced to soccer in a fun, inclusive, and technically sound way, and they receive "travel team" coaching without the travel or expense.  Two, one-hour practices per week (attendance at both is encouraged, not required): one focused on skills and one with age-appropriate games.

If you would like more info on our Academy Program or would like to visit one of our practices, please email our club at info@blountunited.com.
