Twins Youth Academy gets season underway !
After a summer full of camps, 3v3 tournaments, and vacationing the Twins Youth Academy is excited to be back on the fields for another exciting year. The season has already gotten off to a great start with 4 teams participating in the Twin City Classic here at BB&T Soccer Park. Please see how the teams finished up on the weekend below:
U10B - 2 wins & 1 loss
U9B - 1 win & 2 losses
U10G - Tournament Champions with a 4-0 record

Over 100 parents attended our first Parent Meetings of the season on Monday & Tuesday of this week. Discussed in the meeting were Youth Academy philosophies, key player development areas, coaches behavior, and parents sideline behavior. This power point will be available to look over on the Twins website by the end of the week.
Lastly, our Youth Academy Staff will be focusing on certain areas of Character Development this fall with the players. We will be working in conjunction with Youth Soccer Month. Please see the themes for each month below and hope you all have a great fall season !
