U9-U12 Program Information
The AFC Lightning U9-U12 program is designed to help players who are interested in developing the skills needed to succeed in soccer at the highest levels. We have developed our U9-U12 program as a way to provide our young players with the opportunity to receive focused professional training from our qualified staff coaches. It is the U9-U12 program’s primary aim to keep soccer enjoyable, while simultaneously preparing players for the older select ages, U13-U19.
At the U9-U12 level, players will be grouped into teams to play in games against teams from other area programs. The selection process will be guided by player’s attitude towards the staff and fellow players and by performance in all games and training sessions. This will be decided at the coach’s discretion and can change from week to week.
It is club’s aim to have all players who graduate from our U9-U12 Program be ready to play at a level where they are competent and composed with the technical element of the game, and understand the basic mechanics of how a soccer team operates on the field in a competitive environment.
