The All-Star Program is open to all players who played on a fall 2019 Recreational soccer team.
The objective of the All-Star Program is to provide a competitive, club soccer experience for recreational players and families who are interested in continuing to play soccer beyond the fall recreational season. The All-Star Program also provides a sample of what players could expect from the PRFC Youth Soccer Competitive Program.
One key difference between Recreational teams and All-Star/competitive club soccer teams is the age group parameters. Rec teams are formed by school grade whereas all competitive club teams, including our All-Star teams, are formed by birth year. This means a player may, or may not, try out in the same age group as other players from his/her Rec team.
All-Star Team Information:
- These teams will be formed via a tryout process conducted by our professional coaching staff. Not every player who tries out will make a team. Tryouts will be held on the Sunday 24th November at Cochise Elementary School. Each age group tryout lasts 75-90 minutes.
- Teams will be formed for Boys and Girls born in 2010 (Under-10), 2011 (Under-9), 2012 (Under-8) & 2013 (Under-7).
- Each team is coached by a professional trainer and will practice twice per week.
- Teams will play in the Arizona Soccer Association (ASA) Youth Academy League. The season comprises 5-6 Saturday league games from early January 2020 through late February 2020. Each team will also play in one tournament held over a weekend.
- The cost for this program includes: league games, one tournament (3-4 games), professional coaching during games and training during two practices per week, league and AYSA fees, tournament entry fees, uniforms, referees, and administration. The cost is $395 per player.
- Each team will also be invited to partake in some in-house events that are held locally.
- Home games are played in Scottsdale at Chaparral Park. Away games are played in the Greater Phoenix area.
