Coppell Academy

Coppell Academy launched in the Fall of 2013. This program partners CYSA recreational players with professional coaches from Challenger Sports. Coppell Academy is an opportunity for talented players to enjoy advanced training right here in Coppell. Our teams will compete in neighboring Academy playing leagues against club Academy teams from across DFW within the North TexasAcademy League concept.

Participation in Coppell Academy will be in addition to the players’ obligation to their recreational team. Coppell Academy players will be expected to attend at least one recreational team practice and one Coppell Academy team practice per week with one recreational game on Saturday and one Coppell Academygame on Sunday. The Coppell Academy teams will be comprised of current U7-U10 registered recreational players who will be selected via open sessions.

The purpose of the Coppell Youth Soccer Association (“CYSA” or the “Association”) is to foster and advance youth soccer and to look out for the interests of its members. The program promotes the idea of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and courage through organized athletic competition. The CYSA goal is to keep the soccer program exciting and concentrate on developing skills, teaching the game rules, cultivating team spirit, instilling respect for the officials, and preparing our players for the next level.

In terms of looking out for its members, CYSA has sought to offer a program to provide its members with an exciting local opportunity to continue their development in the game all within the CYSA ethos of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and courage. The CYSA recreational league is sure to thrive through this set up, with the standard of overall play improving by keepingCoppell’s finest talent within the program.

Some facts:

- The Challenger Sports Coach will be at all the team’s Academy games (in case of conflicts then another Challenger coach will substitute)

- Teams will enter local Academy playing leagues so as to limit travel
