Junior Development Phase (U11-12)

About Junior Development

The Junior Development Phase is designed for the young player looking to build on his or her skills and to play soccer in a fun and challenging developmental environment.

​The main focus of our Junior Development Phase is to improve players' technical skills while beginning to develop tactical understanding of the game through competitive soccer. Player development is always the main goal - not results.

Program Details

​Players will participate in NCYSA or US Club leagues, attend carefully selected tournaments throughout the course of the season and play in scrimmages against high-level competitive Development Academy and ECNL teams.

​Players will have 3 practice sessions per week and play in league games most weekends, and play a minimum of 4 tournaments per year.
