This is the second level of the club’s developmental process. Structured for players that are seeking higher competition and are ready to venture into a deeper commitment in the game. Teams are trained by a professional coach assigned by the club. These teams will continue to participate in the local Presidio League, with the intention of gaining promotion into the San Diego Developmental Academy, at the appropriate time.
While player development continues to be the focus, competition becomes more relevant as the level of play is elevated and there are greater demands on the player and family. Teams at this level will train a minimum of twice per week plus some activity in the weekend. Also, attendance to the club’s Summer camp as well as attendance to weekly Friday clinics is highly encouraged to ensure progress. Tournament play now expands outside San Diego county, as part of the player’s development. These tournaments will mainly take place, but are not limited to the San Diego and Los Angeles areas. State Cup at the end of the season is now a required part of the developmental experience.
