What does it mean to play for RED Academy?

RED Academy teams provide a elite training above the rep level. We prioritize a fun and competitive environment for the players to learn and develop. We ensure a holistic, nurturing home for players to also grow as people. Teams are coached by experienced, knowledgeable, and qualified coaches.

When are tryouts?

RED Academy holds Open Assessments in the fall of each year. Players always welcome to come in and be assessed during the course of the season.

The next round of Open Assessments will be held in September 2022.

Where do RED Academy teams play?

As a member of Ontario Soccer, RED Academy teams play out of the Southwest Soccer district. Teams have the opportunity to win promotion to the Western Regional Soccer League at U14.

When and where do teams train and play games?

Our program runs for 10 months from October to August. All teams train 2-3 times per week throughout the winter, and 3+ sessions in the spring/summer. Our leagues begin in May and run until the end of August. 

Our teams practice at a number of indoor facilities in the Waterloo Region including RIM Park, Bechtel, UW Field House, and Marden. Outdoor training will be held in Waterloo at RIM Park or Westmount Sports Fields.
