The Juniors Program (JP) is an inclusive environment aimed at providing a platform for our U9 and U10 Boys and Girls (7v7) who are looking for more than recreational soccer. In an aim to provide an atmosphere that is player-centered, allowing players to grow their technical and tactical skills, we feel that we can provide a fantastic experience for each and every soccer player looking for more at this pivotal age in their soccer careers. The JP prepares players to progress at the Representative Program and beyond through a dedicated coaching staff that provides quality, and age appropriate instruction at these key age groups. At these age groups our focus is on players playing local competition on a weekly basis and playing in local tournaments to minimize travel for families.
