ELITE 12-19 YRS
Fort Lauderdale FC’s competitive program has been one of the fastest growing in South Florida. Our teams compete at the local, state, regional and national levels. We are dedicated to developing our players to compete at all levels with an emphasis on individual player and team growth on and off the field.We offer professional coaching and training for boys and girls ages U13 to U19. Our teams play in the South Florida United Youth Soccer League, Florida State Premier League, Region III Premier League, as well as tournaments throughout the State and Country. The season for the competitive program runs from August through May. Teams in the Elite Competitive Program train a minimum of 3 times during the week with possible additional training activities or game(s) on weekends.Depending on the number of qualified players who try out, we may have multiple teams in an age group. If there are two teams the players will be divided into a blue team (more advanced players) and a white team (the developmental team). Coaches will decide on which players play on each team, and a roster spot on a particular team will not guaranteed. It is common for coaches to shuffle players between the top team and their developmental team to give players experience at different levels of play. It is also common to have advanced players occasionally play in an older age group (“play up”) based upon their skills and the needs of the team.
