Junior Academy

The Junior Academy (JA) is Braintree Travel Soccer's development program for our U8 players who are not yet old enough to play competitive travel soccer. U8 is the designation for players aged 8 and under. We follow the USYSA age grouping for travel soccer. Generally, the U8s are 1st and 2nd graders.

This is the BEST DEAL IN TOWN! The fee includes indoor training during the winter with professional instructors, full uniform, competitive games in April and May at East Middle School and a Season Ending Jamboree. Please note, there are no sibling discounts for Junior Academy.

JA begins with indoor training in February and March. Training sessions are usually divided into 1 hour time slots, by school and by gender. The final schedule for these dates will be available in early February after we have a more accurate count of players.

The outdoor season runs on Sundays from late March/early April through May. It concludes the first weekend in June with the very popular World Cup Soccer Jamboree.

While the Junior Academy is a program run by Braintree Travel Soccer, all training takes place in Braintree school gyms and games are played on Sundays in Braintree against other Braintree JA Teams. There is no travel involved at this level.

Volunteers are needed. Please consider volunteering as a coach, assistant coach or field crew.
