Boys' Program Overview
Our boys' program is widely regarded as one of the region's best-run and most successful. We have multiple teams in every age group from U-7 through to U-19 that cater to players of all abilities. Each one of these teams is trained and coached by two members of the professional coaching staff who conduct all training sessions and are at all games. We do not have any volunteer parents working with any team at any level.
All of the boys' coaching staff follow and implement a dynamic, player-centered curriculum that connects all players and teams within the club. The competitive program is geared towards developing great teams by developing great players. SC del Sol is proud of the fact that our competitive players are superbly prepared in all areas.
The majority of our boys' teams practice three times a week in the north Phoenix/Scottsdale area and participate in top-level leagues and tournaments both in and out of state. All of our teams, irrespective of the level, participate in a healthy mix of training, league games, and tournament play. See below for a brief description of all of our player platforms.
