Our Elite program consists of a diversified group of players boys and girls ages U11-U19; each player having a different need but all looking to improve their overall development.

Creating this team provides players the opportunity to challenge themselves physically and mentally while maintaining a high level of technical standard amongst players. The Puma Kings will play in the ISL division. This will be a benefit as players will receive opportunities through games and training to test their skills and take their soccer education to the next level.

Creating this team provides players the opportunity to challenge themselves physically and mentally while maintaining a similar technical standard amongst players. The Puma Select will play in the ISL division. This will be a benefit as players will receive opportunities through games and training to test their skills and take their soccer education to the next level.

THE FUN PHASE

The fascination for playing and the thrill of scoring goals provides the launching pad.  The joy and pleasure of the game are best nurtured by encouraging freedom of expression and organizing children’s play in small groups. Our focus is on FUNdamentals and improving technique.  At this stage, players do not understand tactics or collective play. We keep it FUN and ENJOYABLE to foster a desire to play while learning basic skills.

ALL TEAMS WILL BE BALANCED. THERE WILL NOT BE ACADEMY AND/OR ELITE LEVEL TEAMS IN THIS AGE DIVISION. ROSTERS WILL BE STRUCTURED TO ASSURE MORE PLAYING TIME AND MORE TOUCHES ON THE BALL DURING THEIR LEAGUE GAMES.
