This program is aimed at increasing the training and playing contacts and provide a committed environment for those players who are looking to explore more soccer. The Foundation program creates a more flexible and inclusive environment that aims to reduce travel and cost of participation.
We believe that looking at our players from 12-13 years old as our Competitive Foundations Phase, will help to create a clarity about what the objective is within this programming range and allow us to focus clearly on building teams that are inclusive and balanced, providing all players with more equal opportunities to develop and continue their growth as players.
For 2023, U13 players are born 2010 and 2011.
