College Prep Phase Boys & Girls Programs

In the College Prep Phase, an increased emphasis is placed upon collective problem solving – not teaching an individual player a solution to a problem, but teaching the squad how to discern and communicate game situations and creatively come to team solutions. The Steel City player is dominant, assertive, and connected... qualities that are valuable in future teams, as well as the classroom and workplace.

In addition to the on-field sessions, Steel City U15-U19 players have our community of support in sports performance, mental health, nutrition, and college recruitment.

As each player looks at their goals and aspirations, we aid in both the player and family in finding the right fit and level for their future – both on and off the pitch.
