Seattle United offers year-round U8 and U9 teams through our Junior Academy Program. Long-term player development and a life-long love for the game is our goal.

Below are the 2022 SU Boys and Girls Junior Academy Zoom Recordings. If you have questions about Seattle United or the coming Juniors tryout process, reach out to georgev@seattleunited.com.

Supplemental Tryout due to Spring Break Conflicts:
Tuesday, May 3rd, Shoreline A, 5:00-6:15

The Seattle United U8-U9 Junior Academy will have a strong and clear curriculum that aims to produce technically proficient and confident players in a FUN and enriching environment.  This program will also foster player autonomy and allow players to play without the fear of failure.  We strive for a holistic approach that develops players’ technical foundation, game understanding, physical literacy and mindset.  We also place importance on parent education. The Seattle United U8-U9 Junior Sounders program incorporates Sounders Academy methodology, curricula and best practices, as well as providing the players of Seattle United with the best soccer foundation in the local area and the first step in a clear long-term soccer development pathway.
