Team America is pleased to announce the formation of the Team America Player Development Academy. As part of our effort to meet our goal and provide quality choices to our players, especially in these changing times. The Academy will be focused primarily on the under 9 through under 12 age groups at the travel level and under 7 through under 12 for our recreational player development programs. For this fall we will have academy teams in the 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2005 age groups. We will bring in additional coaches to the academy as the growth of players and teams may require. Alex Pinto has joined the club to coach with Luis Meneses in the coordination of the academy. We will also have the services of previous coaches like Brian Petitt and others to help with specialized training including goal keeping. For additional information on the Academy Coaching Staff.
