Description
The FC Thunder Academy Program is designed for players in the U7-U10 age groups. (Currently birth years 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013) interested in developing their ability by receiving coaching from experienced, licensed, professional trainers in a fun, learning environment. 

Our Academy trainers hold licenses from the US Soccer Federation (USSF), National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), and even the English Football Association (FA) with experience in coaching U7-U10 Academy age players.

FC Thunder Academy players follow a club curriculum to develop technical ability and independent decision-making, both on and off the ball, in individual and group attacking and defending situations.

FC Thunder competes in the prestigious SA-PDF league that includes the top clubs in the San Antonio area such as SA City, Classics Elite, Lions FC, SA United, River City Premier and Alamo Heights. Academy Directors from these clubs have come together to develop a player-centered league dedicated to development, quality competition and organization.

The season consists of 8-10 games, beginning in September in the Fall and February in the Spring. Games are held every Saturday at a host location from one of the SA-PDF teams. 

Players are not required to try-out, but will be placed with a group of players of a similar ability and interest in the game, to set teams up for a successful season.
