Advanced League Teams

Age Groups:
  • u11 (birth years 2011-2012)
  • u14 (birth years 2008-2009)
  • HS boys (birth years 2003-2007)

Intermediate Stage - 13 to 15 Years
First two years playing 11v11. The fundamental area of focus here is developing tactical concepts of the game while continuing to develop technical abilities. Players should know the rules of the game, and should be encouraged to understand the "grey area" of the rules, the etiquette of the game, and the gamesmanship of the game. This is usually accomplished by watching the game being played at very high levels, both in person and on television. 

Players will continue to work on the development of fundamental and advanced individual skills. They will also receive more in-depth tactical instructions, particularly around understanding and playing different positions. Players will continue to experience different positions on the field but may begin to settle into a primary position.  as they receive more in-depth tactical guidance and learn different systems of play.

Advanced Stage - 14 to 18 Years

The final phase of preparation for competitive youth players aims to maximize player performance in all aspects of the game. A player's capacities are becoming fully established while training to peak for major competitions.

Training is characterized by high intensity and relatively high volume with frequent periods of rest. Team tactics form a significant part of practice sessions. Positional training is important, and players should be prepared for a primary position. Physical conditioning is also important for all players and training should be tailored to the physical demands of their position on the field.
