The goal of CFSC’s Developmental Program is to welcome new players to the game. Focus is on developing the technical fundamentals of the game and introducing the basics of soccer tactics and strategy while keeping soccer fun. The program is administered by professionally licensed, club coaches who know and love the game. In the Competitive Program, our younger players continue to learn the technical and tactical aspects of the game in a more competitive environment. Coaches are professionally licensed and competition is generated through local and regional leagues, as well as local tournaments. CFSC’s Academy Program is for our U13 and older players. Two Academy options allow our most committed players to take their skills to the highest level. All aspects of the game and player profile are taught and competition is at the Premier league and Showcase level.
