Total Soccer Academy will be launching a year-round academy for the boys 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 age groups in May of 2024.
Leading up to the launch, our coaches will be scouting talent all over Utah. To do that, we will be running group training sessions where players will have the opportunity to come train in our environment and be seen for a chance to be invited to the academy in May.
These sessions are by application or invite only and will be free of charge.
FAQ's About the Academy
What is the goal of the Academy?
We have long term and we have short term goals. In the short term, we hope to develop the most elite players Utah has to offer in these age groups. In the long term, we hope to be able to provide players with collegiate and professional pathways and playing opportunities.
How many players will be accepted on each team?
For the 2012 team, we will be rostering around 14-16 players. For the 2013 team, we will be rostering around 12-14 players. Those who are accepted into the Academy are always guaranteed a spot in the training environment, but never playing time in games or tournaments. We reserve the right to reward game minutes to those we see fit.
What age groups will this cover?
For 2024, we will be taking three boys teams - born in 2012, 2013 & 2014. Eventually we hope to serve all age groups, boys and girls.
Will we train in winter?
Yes, part of the appeal of an Academy is to be able to train 4 times a week all year. In winter, we will train outside when weather permits, and inside when there's too much snow on the ground. **We will take one month off in December for the holiday schedule.
Can we play club and academy?
Yes; some players will choose to be full-time with the Academy while others may choose to be part-time and still prioritize club soccer. We respect each person's decision and think club soccer still has a lot to offer. We will, however, be training and playing in games & tournaments year round.
How often will we train?
The Academy will provide 4 supplemental training sessions a week for 1.5 hours each session. These are supplemental to your club trainings.
When will we know if we've been accepted to the Academy?
We have a goal to launch May of 2024. We will be holding private group sessions to scout top talent over the next few months. We will also be holding a combine/try-out for invited players sometime in the Spring to finalize rosters and make official invites.
What should we do if we don't get in?
Total Soccer Academy provides other services that replicate the model of the Academy at a smaller scale. We provide private training, camps, team training as well as other training opportunities that can be found on our website.
