Fusion’s Academy Program is for boys and girls ages U7-U10. This program is for players interested in development/training that will prepare them for the Select Program, and consequently has a higher level of commitment than the Recreational program. Teams practice twice a week during the spring and fall seasons, and play in the WYSA WDA (10 games per season), plus they have the opportunity to participate in tournament play. This Program also includes indoor practices during winter (1 per week). Sessions of winter indoor games are also available for an extra fee.

The Academy Program is designed to develop specific age-appropriate skills in young soccer players. To further this goal, a written evaluation of each player will be performed periodically (at least once per program year) by the coach and shared with the parents and player. The objective of the evaluation is to clearly communicate the progress of your player, and also provide an opportunity for dialog with your coach. Our current evaluation form shows what you can expect from the coach, and also illustrates the skills that we seek to instill in each player during their time in the Fusion Academy Program.

The registration fee for U7 and U8 Academy is $600. This fee includes a uniform and a ball.

The registration fee for U9 and U10 Academy is $800. This fee includes a uniform, a ball and a practice shirt.

Academy players are encouraged to participate in our summer camp hosted by the Chicago Fire.
