20/21 Season Information
The SJEB Junior Academy (JA) program is for 2013 & 2014 (U7 & U8) players in the US Soccer Zone 1.  SJEB 20/21 Junior Academy will be for Boys & Girls born in 2013 & 2014.  We are pleased to offer FREE training for Girls & Boys as an introduction to our club and the beautiful game of soccer.

During the JA practices players are taught ball mastery skills, turns and 1v1 moves, then put into small sided 1v1, 2v2 games to find their own way to use them on the field. Fewer players in small sided games ensures each player gets more touches on the ball, and has a bigger part of the game. Coaches will follow a curriculum so players are learning new skills each week, in the small sided games there is limited coaching - players are given the opportunity to experiment, try things, and find out what works.  There are also no referees, and players keep score (or not), with an emphasis on trying new skills rather than winning.  In addition, parents and supporters are kept back from the side of the field to create less of a gallery feel.
- FREE Program.
- More touches.
- Less pressure from coaches & parents.
- Individual technique taught within enjoyable games and exercises.
- Creativity is encouraged in an environment where players can develop and execute new skills with confidence.

Spread The Word
The program is affordable and open to any player in South Jersey area, the more players the better the games and training sessions. Please spread the word in your communities, to your friends, family, neighbors, school friends, church groups, etc. Bring along any player who likes to play soccer. Have the parent fill out the registration form

7v7 Teams at U8 & U9
The purpose of our Junior Academy is to get a large pool of players from which we can form our U8 teams when players begin playing 7v7. Throughout the year we will evaluate all players who attend the training sessions so that we can form teams for the 7v7 (U8) season.
