Academy

The Chesapeake United Academy Program is a preparatory soccer program that focuses on various aspects of individual player development. The objective of the Academy is to provide an appropriate intermediate curriculum to maximize technical development and basic tactical understanding in a training and game environment that will prepare players for the Competitive Program. All players will receive instruction from professional, licensed coaching staff. Through quality coaching and a well-developed curriculum, the Academy seeks to develop a strong foundation in each player which will best prepare them for the Competitive Program beginning at U9.
