Our year round soccer league is all about giving children the opportunity to touch the soccer ball many times in a pressure free game situation. Our Academy League coaches are skilled in teaching children the preliminaries of competitive soccer, sportsmanship and team play. We offer children the experience of playing on a team, whilst keeping the focus on player development and keeping it fun. Each team player will receive one weekday training practice session and one league game on Saturday morning. All of our practices and games make it easy for children to continually learn what it means to play competitive soccer in a relaxed and easy to understand atmosphere.
Having access to indoor and outdoor facilities, the seasonal weather is never a problem. To make sure our players stay fit and active year round, we provide indoor sessions during the harsh winter. During the spring, summer and fall, we take advantage of our outdoor fields.
Each child is placed on an age appropriate team, and will remain on that team for the duration of the season. Saturday morning games will all be held outdoors at the soccer fields of Lakeshore Park located at 6410 S Northsore Drive, Knoxville, TN 37919. Our league players are officially part of our Knox Crush Academy League. They play only against each other cutting travel time for parents as well as creating lasting friendships for our players.
Enrol now for the KNOXCRUSH Summer Academy League which begins June 1st and runs through July 25th. To register, click on the register button above. You can now conveniently pay all registration fees online via our website.
