Brilla Futures/Academy (D2)

Brilla Academy Program Fall 2017

The Brilla Academy program is designed to help develop players that are currently playing Recreational (D3) soccer within the CSA organization. The goal is for the players in this system to develop faster individually and have a more focused intent towards the game. These players will train with professional coaching staff from Brilla FC and play games against other organizations that are set up in a similar manner. The players who choose to participate will have an additional training session during the week that will not conflict with their Recreational (D3) responsibilities.  Brilla Academy is compromised of two components: 


•     Brilla Futures: Provides professional, individual instruction and skills training to our U7 - U8 player pool.

•     Brilla Academy:  Provides professional instruction and next level playing opportunities in a team environment.  Players interested in this option tryout for the Academy team in their age group and train and play as a team.  This year we will hold tryouts for teams in our U8 - U12 age groups ('06, '07, '08, ‘09, ‘10 birth years)



U7-U8 Boys and Girls - Brilla Futures

▪ Brilla Futures is designed to provide individual, professional skills training and instruction to players seeking to improve in the game.  U7-U8 Boys and Girls participating in Brilla Futures will have an additional training session once a week immediately following their recreational practice.

▪ Cost for U7-U8 Boys and Girls is $50, and participants MUST register online to participate. Participants will receive a Brilla Futures jersey and 8-10 training sessions.

U8-U12 Boys and Girls - Brilla Academy


In addition to recreational soccer, we offer our Brilla Academy option for those players seeking professional training AND competitive playing opportunities.  Quality coaching and quality competition are key drivers in player development and our Brilla Academy option can deliver both.

Our Academy program continues to evolve each year this year we have expanded our Brilla Academy to include players from U8 - U12. 

We will hold observations / tryouts for our Brilla Academy teams.  All interested players currently registered in our CFC U8 - U12 Boys and Girls recreational age groups ( '06, '07, '08, ‘09, ‘10 birth years) are eligible to tryout.   After the tryouts, we will select a team, or teams if we have the players to support it, in each age group.

Each team will be assigned a professional coach and will train once a week in addition to their recreational soccer commitments.   We will also play games inter-club, versus other organizations, and also play in some tournaments.  Games and tournaments will be local.

If selected for one of our Brilla Academy teams, there will be a $60 fee per player each month the team is active.  We anticipate that will be 3 months in the Fall (September - October) and 4 months in the Spring (February - May) .   This monthly fee will cover training fees, referee fees for friendly games, and tournament entry fees. 

In addition, there will be an Nike Brilla Academy uniform which will consist of a pair of socks, shorts, and two jerseys.  The uniform kit costs $60.  If you participated in Brilla Academy last year and still have your uniform, you can use it again this year and are not required to purchase a new one.    The uniform fee is not covered in the monthly fee structure and is due once the uniform is delivered to you.

Last year, we had a very successful Academy program as evidenced by the significant improvement of our players and the success of our Academy teams.  We had several teams win tournaments and one team, our U9 Brilla Academy Boys, win the MSA Presidents Cup State Championship. 

If you are interested in going to the next level in soccer, I strongly encourage you to come to the tryouts for our Brilla Academy teams.  There is no cost to tryout.  The tryout schedule is as follows:

U9 - U12 Boys and Girls (Birth years ‘06, ‘07, ‘08, & ‘09)
