We consider The Academy Program to be the foundation of a players competitive playing experience. It is intended to bridge the gap for both boys and girls between a recreational environment and our Competitive programs. We believe in a progressive approach to development. Our goal is to provide the highest quality training environment for players U8-U10, while reducing the travel commitment from our youngest teams. The Academy program is our introduction to the Butte United philosophy, style of play, and system. Our curriculum will focus on technical ball mastery and introduce functional team concepts. The 7v7 model allows our staff to address the technical and tactical building blocks which help our players prepare for the 11v11 game. These players will compete in a schedule of scrimmages and tournaments in a low-stress fun experience. the Academy program offers a variety of training and playing opportunities in the form of; scrimmages, team camps, clinics, guest playing opportunities, and tournament play.
This program will be led by our Director of Coaching, Enrique Tadeo. Enrique holds a USSF National B License, USSF National Youth License, and is currently a Physical Education Teacher with Orland Unified School District.
