2020/2021 Micro-Elite Program
The Micro-Elite program is a competitive development program for boys and girls ages 6 through 10 (birth years 2010 to 2014). This is a minimal-to-no travel program focused on taking players through age-appropriate development of soccer skills, etiquette, fair play and team dynamics, designed to help further their love and understanding of the game as we prepare them for the transition to competitive travel soccer.
There will be emphasis on skills that will allow for valuable participation, understanding and contributions on a team at all positions, while at the same time bolstering the ability to enjoy playing soccer. Above all, our goal is to have fun and help players embrace the spirit of the game.
