Boys and Girls ages 6 through 19 are trained by professional coaches to develop, enhance, and explore their soccer talents as well as their physical fitness, self confidence, positive personality, and teamwork. We understand that children learn in different ways during different stages of their lives and training sessions need to be adapted to their age. For example a 9 year old will not be trained in the same way a 13 year old is trained. Below are some of the explanations of guidelines and principals of our age specific player training.
Our focus is progressive development from year to year. Currently teams are formed according to school years (in most cases). However, beginning in 2016, The United States Soccer Federation will mandate the teams are to be formed by birth year- regardless of school grade.
