Academy Program

Welcome to Tampa Bay United Rowdies Academy Program

What is the Academy Program?
Academy programs have emerged as a 21st century alternative to the frustrating shortfalls in soccer development displayed by most pre-teens. This void is heavily influenced by coaching quality and the pressures to win at critical periods in the development process.

Academy programs seek to improve individual player development, satisfaction and retention, and to build a less pressured youth soccer environment for coaches, adult spectators, and match officials. 

Program Mission:
The mission of the Tampa Bay United Rowdies Academy is to provide the best possible coaching and instruction for our young players to ensure proper development of individual skill and technique and to introduce the team concepts involved in the game. The Academy’s experienced coaching staff emphasizes technical, tactical and physical development while encouraging individual creativity and expression.

Why choose the Academy?

  • Experienced Staff: Our Coaching Staff possess extensive soccer knowledge, coaching and playing experience.
  • Highest Emphasis Placed on Player Development: Tampa Bay United Rowdies players develop individual skills and an understanding of the team game, in an enjoyable format. Players are trained using proven coaching methods found in the United States Soccer Coaching Curriculum and will compete in a league chosen to stretch their abilities.
  • Technique & Skill Are Emphasized; Tactics & Teamwork Are Introduced: The structure (but not the content) of our Academy training sessions will be similar to that of our older players. The main component of the Academy sessions will emphasize technical training. However, at these ages, a child’s capacity to solve problems increases significantly. Players will begin working on self-solving basic, dynamic tactical scenarios through small-sided games, in addition to improving his/her individual skills and technique.
