What parents are saying.....
I have had 3 of my children be a part of the GulfSouth Soccer Academy. I fell that the soccer skills they are taught through the Academy are better than then can learn in any other local program. GulfSouth Soccer Academy is fun for the kids, fun as a partent to watch, and also prepares them to play at the club level. I have 1 child still participating and the other two have finished the Academy program and gone on to play competitive soccer for GulfSouth.
The GulfSouth Academy is an awesome way for kids interested in soccer to have fun and gain the fundamental skills and confidence to prepare them for team play. The GulfSouth staff provides a fun environment for kids to learn soccer via simple drills and scrimmages. The Academy is great for both the kids and parents to learn the fundamentals of soccer and become part of the GulfSouth Soccer Club.
