Junior Academy League is our introductory level programming for players that are new to soccer or looking for less of a time commitment.

Junior academy training focuses on individual ball mastery, technical skills training and fun, small sided games to introduce players to the game of soccer.



Our Junior Academy programming is for players aged U5 to U10. Players in the Junior Academy program train one night per week and play one game per week.  Training sessions are held on a Friday evening starting at 5pm and games are played on Sunday afternoon. All training sessions and games are run by professional, fully licensed GFI Academy coaches and follow our GFI methodology centered on the individual development of players. 

Registration for Junior Academy is open to any players and does not require attendance at a tryout or player ID event.

We offer two seasons of Junior Academy at both our Spring Branch location and our Location in The Woodlands:

  • Fall season begins the week after Labor Day and runs until Thanksgiving.
  • Spring season begins the second week of February and runs until the end of April.

Fees are paid for each season in Junior Academy and they are $200 at our Spring Branch location and $225 at our location in The Woodlands.  Uniforms are not included in the fees. A uniform package costs $120 and will last until May 2025.
