U8, U9 and U10
BIRTH YEAR: 2011, 2010 AND 2009
Community programs offer a comprehensive soccer experience for players of all ages and skill levels. Our focus is to create an atmosphere and environment in training and competition where players are challenged to be creative and solve problems. The priority is on the individual player and the development of technically superior soccer players in a fun, rewarding setting. Great importance is placed on age appropriate activities and creating a child-centered learning environment where building the player comes first, then the team. Players will practice twice a week (on average) throughout the season in an academy style format which US Soccer determined as a “Best Practice.” We implement and replicate many of the highest standards required by U.S. Soccer.
