Advanced League - Program Information

Intermediate Stage - 13 to 15 Years
First two years playing 11v11. 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.  Markers of the stage:

  • The pace of development quickens at this level due to the acceleration of physical and mental maturation
  • The demands of skill-training should like-wise increase
  •  Awareness within an 11-a side game becomes an important part of the practice

Advanced Stage - 16 Years and Up
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.  The game can become very physical at this age, and playing within the exact rules of the game can put players at a disadvantage.  Teaching players to deal with the physical side of the game can help ensure the players' safety. 
 
  • Conforming to adult standards
  • Sound understanding of the game’s principles and concepts
  • Mastery of basic skills
  • Emotional stability when confronted with pressure situations
  • Preparation for playing at the collegiate level
