Are you ready to get involved with the OK Rangers Junior Academy?
Players born in 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014 can play for our academy.
Players can also dual roster on both recreational and academy teams.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find a session or to ask questions.
The goal will be to schedule games, leagues and tournaments that have a balance to challenge & encourage our players.
Training will consist of exercises, drills, free play, games, and homework. We emphasize the importance of the player being comfortable, confident, and happy with the ball at their feet. Building technical ability and confidence on the ball will be the focus throughout the players’ time in the Academy. We understand the importance of soccer starting at home. Whether it’s playing with family, focusing on technical skills, or practicing new technical challenges, a huge part of your child’s success in soccer will be their commitment to training outside of scheduled practices
Each player’s development path will be different. Coaches will do their best to meet each player where they are at, evaluate their individual needs, and challenge them to improve in the identified areas. We will train in teams and small groups to facilitate each player’s ability and development. There will be times a player may be asked to play up, to get an additional challenge, or play down, to gain some much-needed success and confidence.
The central goal in our junior academy is technical development. Although we understand the importance of competition and a competitive mindset within the process, we will not emphasize winning at the expense of player development. We believe that development and learning happen through both success and failure. We will teach our players to embrace the process and never be afraid to try new things. We will consistently guide our players with this in mind, knowing that in the long term, this will lead to success.
The academy program consists of $100 registration due on sign up and the 2nd installment of $100 due 1/30/2024. Training fees $650 and are broken into 10 monthly installments due on the 15th of the month for convenience.

There will be circumstances where a player due to their ability will play up a year. This decision will be coach driven and must be the right decision for the individual. The Director of Coaching will be involved in any decision regarding players playing up. Players must start off in their birth year and will be placed accordingly by the coaching staff, after an evaluation period. Younger players may NOT play up on a second team. We want anyone playing up to be top 5 on the top team. Formal requests may be made to the staff regarding playing but again, the decision will be coach driven with the players best interests at the forefront.
2014 & 2015 age groups will play 7v7 & introduction to 9v9. We will play games in house, and in the Metro Academy Games Platform with ESC, NOKC, Norman, & MWC. We also set up festival weekends with like-minded Clubs from out of town (Tulsa, Dallas)
2016 & 2017 age groups will play 4v4 & some introduction to 7v7. We will play games in house, and in the Metro Academy Games Platform with ESC, NOKC, Norman, & MWC. We also set up festival weekends with like-minded Clubs from out of town (Tulsa, Dallas)
Teams will be formed based on ability. Players may move from one team to the next based on their progress. This evaluation and movement will be up to the coaches working in that age group.
