JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT PHASE (U11-12)
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.
Players will participate in sanctioned leagues, attend carefully selected tournaments throughout the course of the season and play in scrimmages against high-level competitive Development Academy teams.
Players will have 3 practice sessions per week and play in league games most weekends, playing a minimum of 4 tournaments per year.
From season 2020-21, Carolina Velocity FC will operate its Junior Development Phase program out of two locations. Each location will receive the same professional coaching and adhere to the same philosophy. Each location will be overseen by Director of Soccer, Andy Thompson.
Carolina Velocity FC Raleigh
XL Soccer World, 5600 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27606

CEDA Academy Fields, 6112 Rex Rd, Holly Springs, NC 27540
