The Jr Phantoms program focuses on the complete development of each player. The main goal is to promote players development over team development in a child centered environment.

The academy format seeks individual player development, satisfaction and retention, and to build a less pressured youth soccer retention for coaches, adult spectators, and referees.

Junior Phantoms Program Details:

  • Academy Coaches are licensed coaches specialized in the ages U9 – U10
  • Developmentally appropriate curriculum for U9 – U10 ages

Pool Training & Rostering:

  • Pool training and rostering allows players to be challenged at their own individually developmentally appropriate levels.

Training environment:

  • Players participate in pool training format (players are matched up developmentally in smaller groups with a prefer ratio of 14 players to each qualified coach
  • Players may not participate in more than three practices per week

How This Works?

  • Gives the coaches and programs the freedom to structure teams and move players so that all games are competitive with no blow outs in the final scores.
  • If a player is dominating a game and not challenged he/she can be moved to a game where they are with other players of the same ability, size, and speed
  • If a player is not engaged and cannot compete with the other players the player can be  moved to another game with other players of the same ability, size, and speed

Games & Tournaments:

  • Alabama Soccer Association (ASA) will set play two dates per season. Specific dates and locations of these play dates will be determined by ASA as we near the season this fall 2017.
