The Indie Chicas Academy is a true "academy" experience for the female player.  Focusing on U5-U10 girls, the Chicas Academy provides consistent and fun instruction, focused on the development of individual players and Chicas teams.  Unlike the "recreational leagues" common to larger clubs, the Chicas Academy provides consistent advanced training that is reinforced in game environments.  Academy players will begin their development and soccer journey, building lifelong friendships with their Chicas teammates and Chicas Staff.  Kids will learn how to play the beautiful game in a safe, fun and challenging environment resulting in confident, skillful and intelligent players.  Work. Love. Share. Develop.  We are the Chicas!
