Academy

Elmbrook United offers an Academy Soccer Program which includes U8, U9 and U10 soccer teams.

The EBU Academy program will offer players the opportunity to learn the game from a licensed coach and to play for EBU against other local community teams participating in the new Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) Academy program.  This program will provide a higher level of player development for players interested in an advanced development model.  Team play dates with other clubs will be coordinated through WYSA.

EBU will be holding an Open-House for all players interested in playing for EBU’s Academy Program. Starting in the fall for the 2017/2018 soccer season, EBU’s Academy Program will include 2008-2011 boys and girls. The Open-House allows EBU’s staff coaches an opportunity to identify players that may be a good fit for EBU’s Academy Program. We have scheduled the following dates for 2008-2011 boys and girls to come together for one night of small sided soccer. Player’s will play several games of 4v4 (2011/2010), or 7v7 (2009/2008) depending on which age they fall.

The NEW Elmbrook United Academy will hold its Open House for ALL current and non-Academy players.  The Open House is set for June 5-8, 5:30-7:00 PM at Voigt Soccer Park, Field TBD.  Below you will find the Academy Open House Schedule.
