U9-U10 Academy

The Des Moines Menace's U9-U10 Academy program is designed to allow players at this age level an opportunity to increase their development in the game of soccer.

The Menace participates in the U9-U10 Iowa Soccer Academy League and follows the state association's developmental guidelines, which include:

a set training curriculum with mixed training groups  mixing teams after each playing season  • small roster sizes 

mandatory coach education and parent education  •  a focus on the individual player, not on the team

The U9-U10 program is a bridge into select soccer, but it does follow some fundamental recreational principles, including 50% playing time in matches.  With the guidance of professional coaches and licensed parent coaches, the emphasis of the program is on individual player development.
