Program Information

The goal of the Competitive program is to align and develop each player along with his or her own age, talent, and commitment level, to ensure a positive and fulfilling soccer experience, growing a love for the game and promoting player retention. Focus will shift from the more individual-focused development of the Youth Academy to a more individual and team focused on the development of the Competitive Programs. The Competitive Program is a step below our National Programs. Players that are not quite ready for a National Program level are given a chance to continue to develop while still in a competitive environment. Teams will compete in regional state leagues as well as tournaments.
