Our Academy Program is now FULL!
The Sachem Slammers Academy was created to help bridge the gap between Intramural Soccer and Travel Soccer. The Academy provides a professionally trained environment all year.
The Sachem Slammers Academy is a great head start program that was started as a way to bridge the gap between the Intramural and Travel programs. The Academy targets players at the pre travel age of U7 and U8 (travel begins at U9). The Academy is aimed at providing players exposure to professional formalized trainers throughout the year. The Academy has proved a popular option for those looking for a more structured environment as well as a great club developmental tool to prepare our future travel players and programs as they develop into the many opportunities the Slammers offer.
The Academy has three sessions, Fall, Winter and Spring. All three sessions practice twice a week. The Fall and Spring session include weekend games. The cost for each session is separate.
