What is the Jr. Academy?  

The WNY Flash Jr. Academy is a soccer training program for young players, who were born 2010-2013, which offers the building blocks of technical proficiency and basic tactical understanding. The Jr. Academy curriculum is designed to encourage a love for the game, positive training habits and teamwork skills needed to progress through all levels of youth soccer while having fun. The training environment is structured to create small, fast-paced scenarios that develop the critical thinking and decision making needed to play soccer at a higher level. Games on the weekend follow US Soccer Guidelines, using small-sided fields and small goals to maximize skill development and the amount of touches each player gets in a competitive environment.



All training and games for the Fall Outdoor sessions will be held at West Seneca Soccer Complex.

The training and games for the Winter sessions will now have two locations:  Southtowns Location - Sahlen's Sports Park and Northtowns Location - Epic Fun Center.


Training Uniform:

Players will be required to wear a Flash Academy training uniform like our older Flash Academy teams.  You can find the uniform package by clicking 'Uniform Ordering' under the 'JR ACADEMY' tab.
