JUSC's academy program is operated by Sporting Iowa.  Academy soccer strengthens 9U-10U players’ technical foundations and prepares them for select soccer.  Academy soccer allows players to play with and against players of similar ability and at a level where they will experience the most success and have the most fun playing the sport.  It follows a set of player development guidelines that include following a training curriculum, mixing training groups, mixing teams after each playing season, maintaining small roster sizes, mandatory coach education for academy coaches, parent education and most importantly a focus on the individual player, not on the team.  While there are no tryouts, players considering the academy program should exhibit sound technical skills, demonstrate good agility, and possess a high level of focus and concentration.  Academy programming is available for both fall and spring seasons.
