The U11-U14 Select Program of AFC Union offers a competitive, comprehensive program, designed to provide the best player development environment for its players. Designed to assist our players in reaching their ODP, high school, collegiate and personal goals, the AFC Union program and our coaches are committed to providing the necessary programs and training to foster success.
U11-U12 Age Group
At our U11/ U12 age groups, a try-out process is used to evaluate players and form a Premier team(s) and select local teams (North/South) at each of the U11 and U12 age groups. Based on the assessments of teams by the Director of Player Development and coaches, teams are enrolled in the appropriate competitive state or regional league. The focus of training at these ages is heavily technical in nature, but tactical soccer concepts and theories are introduced and taught by our coaches.
U13-14 Age Group
At our U13-U14 age group, the training focus begins to shift from technical to tactical development. Tactical training becomes more focused and proper play is emphasized. Technical training will still take place, but often it occurs within a tactical session and coaches emphasize increasing a player’s technical speed and the speed of play.
