U11-U14 (2009-2012) Program
Our goal is to provide competitive playing opportunities for children who are enthusiastic about the game, who desire to develop skills to a higher level, and want to have fun while doing so with paid, certified/licensed coaches. The program is aimed at the achievement of excellence, toward everyone playing their best, and further developing an appreciation for competition and sportsmanship. The U11-U14 program focuses on the development of individual players born 2009-2012, with an emphasis on:
Technical Skills and Body Mechanics
Tactical Knowledge and Decision Making
Teamwork and Competition
Discipline and Fun
Teams hold formal tryouts for the each season in the first week of May with each age-group's tryout schedule including two days of observation. Players will receive their number and be divided up into cohorts where they will be evaluated by our coaching staff to assess your player's skills, decision making, physiological/psychological aspects of their play. Players will be notified following tryouts by our coaching staff if we think they will be a good fit on one of our teams.
If you are interested in joining mid-season, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to connect with the head coach of the age-group. If there are any spots currently available, your player will be invited to attend one of the team's regular training sessions to see if it is a good fit. You must register for "tryouts," pay the $25 fee and sign all waivers before attending the session. If the coach would like to offer your player a spot, you will be sent the official team invite and will be able to register for the season. Club membership rates will be prorated based on date of first official practice.
