YOUTH DEVELOPMENT Phase Boys & Girls Programs

Entering now into the full, 11-a-side game, the U13 & U14 years build on the technical excellence and deepen the tactical understanding of the game through a curriculum that encourages an assertive, dominant, and connected style of play.


All teams are encouraged to play an attractive brand of soccer, with a balance of organization and discipline, mixed with creativity and flair.

The overall aim of this phase is to help our players acquire the technical ability, tactical knowledge, and personal skills needed as they enter into the College Prep and/or Performance Phase.
