K.I.N.G.S U5-U6 (2016-2015 birth years)

K.I.N.G.S. (Kicking Is Not Good Soccer); What do you mean kicking is not good soccer? Soccer is a game of ball control. In this entry-level program for our U5-U6 age groups, we teach the players the FUNdamentals of ball control including dribbling, advancing with the ball in control and beginning work on passing. Learning ball control at an early age sets the player up for future success as their game and skill advances.  In K.I.N.G.S. we focus on a few things; first having fun, second, fostering a love for this great game, and finally delivering a great experience in a safe environment. This is the first step in our Player Pathways and the foundational beginning of what we call The Independence Way, a proven successful method for developing soccer players of all ages and all skill levels.

Youth Development Program U7-U8 (2014-2013 birth years)*

Youth Development Program (YDP); Our Youth Development Program (YDP) serves as step two in our Player Pathways and also serves as a bridge between our Recreational programs and our Competitive programs.  The YDP's deliver an environment for the players to learn at a greater depth. With licensed professional coaches, we follow a curriculum designed to develop and improve the technical playing ability of each player. Players will develop comfort and greater confidence with the ball. The knowledge and technical ability gained will be applied to scrimmages and games. Lessons learned in YDP will be applied in competitive situations. Check below to see locations this program is offered!
