  Gunner Academy:
The primary objective of our Academy program is to enable players to learn the game of soccer in a fun and stimulating environment. The focus is on developing their skills to help them be the best soccer players they can be, while maintaining a healthy and positive environment our Academy is offered in two formats Junior and Senior Gunners, see details below.
  Junior Academy:
The Junior. Academy Program is our grassroot first step developmental training program for players ages 4 to 7. Our Academy Director focuses on building the foundation for the future. Players have one training session per week and one match day. Match day is small sided games 3v3 or 4v4 to small goals to enable all the players to be engaged and always playing. We constantly strive to put players into appropriate player groupings to keep them challenged and have fun. 
Senior Academy:
The Senior Academy is the next level in our Academy program. This is for players ages 8-12 and provides two training sessions and a match day. At this age it is extremely important for players to master the skills and fundamentals needed to progress towards Challenge and Classic soccer at the older ages. Winning games is not the focus of the Senior Academy and while games will be played, no standings will be kept.

Challenge Soccer is our next level of play after Gunner Academy. This program is for players ages 9 -19 who want to improve to the next level of play and start playing against other clubs in the area. Challenge soccer is a one year commitment (both fall and spring) provides two training sessions and one match per week during season.
Classic Soccer is our travel program for those boys and girls ages 10-19 who want a more rigorous schedule and competitive game schedule than challenge (advanced soccer) and recreational soccer options. Classic soccer is a one year commitment (both fall and spring) provides two training sessions and two tournaments.
