Our competitive program is widely regarded as being one of the best run and most successful in the region. We have multiple boys and girls teams in every age group from U7 - U18. 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 coaching staff follow and implement a cutting edge player-centered curriculum that is designed to create the complete player. The competitive program is geared towards player and team development and characterized by excellence.
SC del Sol teams participate in a challenging schedule of training, league games and tournament play. Our training curriculum seamlessly connects all of the coaches and players in the Club irrespective of age and ability. The curriculum focuses upon the five components of soccer: technique, tactics, physical preparation, mental preparation and nutrition. SC del Sol is proud of the fact that our competitive players are superbly prepared in all areas.
The majority of our teams practice three times a week in the north Phoenix area and participate in top-level leagues and tournaments both in and out of state. Our main commitment is to the Arizona Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) of which we are a long standing member. Depending upon age, our teams will participate in AYSA's Premier League, AYSA's State League, AYSA's Port of Subs League, AYSA's Presidents' Cup and AYSA's State Cup. In addition to league play our teams will participate in respected tournaments in-state and out-of-state throughout the season.
Throughout the years our teams have participated in prestigious tournaments such as Dallas Cup (TX), Surf Cup (CA), Blues Cup (CA), North Huntington Beach (CA), Presidents Day (AZ), PDA (New Jersey), Disney Soccer Showcase (FL). This commitment to elite tournaments will continue as it provides our players with the unique opportunity to compete against the best clubs in the U.S. while showcasing their talents in front of the top college coaches in the country.
The newest development at SC del Sol has been the acceptance in to U.S. Soccer's Girls' Development Academy. We are one of 68 elite soccer clubs in the U.S. that have been invited to participate and we are the only club in Arizona that has Academy status. The Development Academy will serve as the elite player development model throughout the country. This environment will provide our players with the highest level of competition in the country and enable them to showcase their talents in front of hundreds of College coaches and National Team coaches.
