Middle Valley Soccer

Middle Valley Soccer Academy is an enhanced developmental program for youth players and is modeled after the highly successful FC Alliance Academy (Knoxville). Our fields are located at 1900 Crabtree Rd in Hixson (FIELD LAYOUT).

Our Academy Basic program is open to any U3-U16 player looking to play soccer in a quality learning environment with more structure than traditional recreational systems. Participation costs start at only $60 per season. Academy Plus is an accelerated developmental program for U6-U12 players wanting exposure to higher-level competition and more intense training from licensed coaches. Academy Plus is a strong alternative to select soccer but without the extreme financial commitments and travel demands.

Contact Christi Hendricks at soccerpresident@mvya.net with any general questions about MVS, or contact Travis Markum at mvsacademy@gmail.com regarding the developmental Academy program.
