Team Formation

Fee Structure

Players will register for a recreational team during the registration period and pay the current recreational fee.

Players will also register separately for the Pre-Academy Program.

The Pre-Academy fee is $105 per season. 

The registration fee is used to cover the costs of licensed staff coaches, training equipment, and field usage fees.


The most important benefit to participating in the U-8 Pre-Academy is the professional training and guidance they will receive from the Shreveport United Soccer Club staff.

The focus will be on the development of technical skills with an introduction to fundamental tactics to prepare players to enter our U-9 Academy.

Pre-Academy training is a seven week program in the Fall and in the Spring.

Players will train 2 days per week. It is important that players attend training sessions on a regular basis. This program is designed for players looking to dedicate a significant amount of time to training and development of their soccer skills.


U-8 Pre-Academy players will compete with their recreational teams on the weekends.
