Lehi, Utah – Michael Chesler, UAFC Technical Director, announced today that UAFC will be launching its Mini's Academy starting this March with registration open now.

This is the perfect gateway for boys and girls between the ages of 4 - 12 yrs. that are looking for a higher level or supplemental training to recreational soccer. Academy play is focused and structured, yet still kid friendly as we want to teach players to enjoy soccer.

It has taken over a year to make sure we have the correct people in place, curriculum planned out, locations, and partnerships to make this benefit the kids we are working with. The goal of the academy is to not only help build a strong technical foundation for our players but to really help develop an enjoyment for the game of soccer."
