UPDATED FOR FALL 2021
A3 Soccer is offering Futures Soccer to players born between 2015 (U07) and 2018 (U04).
Our Europa League is for players born in 2018 (U04). Its purpose is to establish a skill foundation based on fundamentals through a clinic environment.
The Champions League is for players born 2017 (U05). The Champions League will allow our young players to get an introduction to the world's favorite sport.
Our own version of the World Cup, for players born between 2016 (U06) and 2015 (U07), will introduce players to regular fields, referees, goals, and positions.
All parts of the program will emphasize learning, development, and fun!
A clinic based league for 2018 players.
Our league allows our U04 (born 2018) players to be introduced to the game in a total clinic environment (no games) which will focus on teaching players to develop basic motor skills such as walking, running and changing directions.
A recreational league for 2017 players.
As many of you know, due to feedback from parents and coaches, we restructured the Champions League to incorporate more professional training. This was done to improve the skill-building experience for all players. We are confident this new approach has enhanced the experience for parents, coaches, and players. The teams conduct their clinics and games every Saturday morning. The clinic runs 35-40 minutes and immediately transitions into a ~20 minute game with teams matched up against each other. The clinic is conducted by a professional trainer who demonstrates "games" for the teams. Coaches are expected to learn the games so they can reinforce the lessons learned during practices. The new format allows inexperienced coaches the opportunity to develop coaching skills on the field. This will enable both the coaches and players a fun, interactive time with their teams with a high level of instruction. The players and coaches will stay together throughout the session. Teams will be provided team jerseys to represent their Champions League team - Manchester, Inter, Liverpool, Real, etc.
A recreational soccer league for 2016 amd 2015 players.
Games and practices are at Bell Branch - 2400 Davidsonville Road. Practices are one night a week and games are on the weekend (Saturday morning). The season will last approximately 9 weeks. League play features recreational soccer with games played on a short-sided field, 5v5, and referees. Game scores and statistics are not kept. The emphasis is on fun and transitioning to county/premier soccer. Teams will be provided team jerseys to represent their international World Cup team - USA, England, Germany, Spain, etc.
