WINDERMERE COMPETITIVE PROGRAM
The Competitive program is designed to allow any player the opportunity to play a higher-level competition. This program is for those athletes whose desire, natural ability, commitment and passion for the game make them want to develop their ability to the highest level they can achieve. The program is divided into three divisions:
Rising Stars Academy – Ages (8-12 years old)
Junior Academy – Ages (13-15 years old)
Senior Academy – Ages (16-19 years old)
On the Competitive program, all players are coached by professional coaches. Players submit for player placements (tryouts) at the beginning of the season and are placed on teams. At this level, players have made a decision to play competitive soccer and are placed based upon their passion and ability in order to maximize their potential. All players have the opportunity throughout the program to move up or down a level of play, based on their development. In this case, player movement is possible between teams throughout the year.
