What is Academy?
SCOR Academy is a developmental program for players in first grade through fourth grade trained by Team Excel professional coaches.

Tryouts
There will be NO tryouts for the SCOR Academy Program. All age appropriate players willing to make the commitment are welcome to participate in the program. Experience from prior season and/or preseason practice will assist the professional staff with placing the players on equally balanced teams within their gender league.


Safety
All players must wear proper equipment, including soccer cleats (no football or baseball which have a toe cleat) and properly sized shin guards. No jewelry is permitted; earrings are not allowed to be taped and must be removed for practice and play. The only exceptions are medical bracelets and necklaces which are required for player safety. In these cases, the bracelet or necklace must be secured (taped) to prevent injuries. Please see the SCOR No Jewelry Policy for full details.
