HOW IS METAMINIS different THAN ACADEMY?
MetaSport FC Academy is a full year, team-based program for kids born between 2011 and 2008. Academy teams play in the region leagues representing MetaSport FC
MetaMinis 2017-2018 is an individual based training program for players born between 2010-2012. This is a great introduction to structured training without the longer-term commitment.
so, there aren't metaminis teams?
Based on feedback from parents, we molded the MetaMinis program into individual training. This allows parents the flexibility to independently sign up their player for their hometown recreation league and also register for MetaMinis for specialized training.
