The aim of these informational meetings is to review the academy model being created and address all concerns regarding CVUSC House/Rep soccer and VIPL commitments. At this time we will be defining and explaining the age groups, outlining the skill-based model for assessment of the players, as well as address the program content and goals.

Our goal will be to form the following groups for the 2015 Spring Academy:
