The Developmental Phase is U11-U14 age groups (2010-07 birth years).
The Developmental age groups are building on the skills from the Foundational Phase. The focus is on learning to apply individual skills to the team environment.
Team formation is select at this age group, with players being set on developmentally appropriate teams. The club tries to give additional opportunities to play on multiple teams throughout the season to learn through a variety of challenges & teammates.
Teams Practice as an age group 2 x per week in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Age group training aims to grow the entire player pool & give opportunities for multiple challenges during training.
Teams will play in developmentally appropriate divisions for leagues & tournaments. Specific tournaments and travel will be determined on a team-by-team basis. We continue to keep an eye on limiting costs, but also want to give fun experiences of tournament play & seeing new types of competition.
