Hive 7U/8U Academy

This program is for children born in 2012 (7U) and 2011 (8U). Teams are formed based loosely on school attending. Parent coaches conduct one training session per week with the assistance of the Hive Director and professional staff.  Teams play one 4v4 game (no goalkeepers) each weekend (Saturdays/Sundays). Games consist of two, 20 minute halves.

All 7U/8U players are also given the option to participate in the Coerver® Center of Excellence in addition to the Hive programming. All CoE sessions are conducted by club coaches who have been trained in the Coerver® Coaching Method. CoE sessions will be held on Fridays from 5:30-6:45 pm. More information

Location: All games and training sessions are held at Elkhorn Training Camp (ETC) in Elkhorn.  CoE sessions are held at the James P. McNeil Soccer Complex.

Jerseys/Uniforms:  A red adidas jersey can be purchased at Soccer Internationale (2541 S 132nd St).  All players must have a jersey to wear for games.
