DJCT will be the exclusive Jr Academy program at HCI; U8-U10 program to run all training sessions at top indoor facility in Bee Cave, TX
4/7/17 - DJCT and Hill Country Indoor (HCI) Sports and Fitness, a brand-new 140,000 square foot, state-of-the-art indoor sports and fitness facility in Bee Cave, TX, have reached an agreement that will have DJCT run its Under-8 to Under-10 Jr Academy program exclusively out of the first-of-its kind facility in West Austin starting in the Fall 2017.
HCI, which will have their grand opening during the summer of 2017, has an indoor turf field (185' by 85') that all DJCT players born in 2010, 2009 and 2008 (Under-8 to Under-10) will use for team practices at the indoor facility. The partnership will ensure that DJCT does not lose practice sessions due to rainouts and will allow parents to take advantage of the many amenities that HCI has to offer during their child's practice.* Starting in May, HCI will be scheduling tours of the facility. DJCT members will be eligible for discounted gym memberships as part of the agreement.
"Partnering with Hill Country Indoor will immediately elevate our Under-8 to Under-10 Jr Academy program as this will provide DJCT with the top training facility in Austin for our players," says DJCT Director of Coaching Tim Chestney. "Coaching and facilities are two of the critical pillars in having a successful club and Hill Country Indoor puts us right at the top in regards to training environments. The 8-10 age range is especially important for the technical development of a player, and, along with an excellent Jr Academy coaching staff, that includes UEFA B-licensed Jr Academy Director, Matteo Curioni, HCI's facilities will put DJCT at the forefront of all the Jr Academy programs in the area. From a parent's standpoint, they'll have the option to drop their kids off for practice and then take a fitness class, run the indoor track, hit the cardio/weight machines or simply grab a bite to eat."
DJCT will have player opportunity events (POE's) for any players (boys & girls) born in 2010, 2009 or 2008 on Thursday, April 20, April 27, May 4 and May 11 from 5:00-6:15pm at Field of Dreams (FOD #3). The POE's will allow players and parents to get a feel for the training done by the DJCT coaches prior to Jr Academy team formation for the Fall 2017 season.
DJCT's Jr Academy Observation/Team formation for Fall 2017 teams will take place on Tuesday, May 23 from 5:00-6:15pm (girls) and 6:30-7:45 (boys) at FOD #3.
