About
An age and stage related program that places players into our Performance Player Pathway. The Phoenix Program has shifted over the past few seasons with a renewed focus on the development of young players and coaches. With a player centred approach, we are better able to address the needs of young players with greater efficiency and effectiveness. We provide a Long-Term Player Development inspired program that will include a holistic curriculum and plan with purposeful training and growth opportunities for the passionate player and coach.

Program Entry

It is fundamental & vital that parents and athletes recognize the high level of commitment required to be a Phoenix player.  There is a selection and placement process that includes an independent group of assessors working alongside the coaching staff to ensure the process is athlete centred. Additionally, in-season assessments as well as in season coach's reports will be key criteria in the placement process.  The Technical Department will be involved in all selections & placements to ensure the best interest of the player and the SPDSA.  Our goal is that every athlete is placed in the most appropriate environment based on a holistic four corner approach - Technical, Physical, Mental, and Social aspects.

Coaching
Qualified volunteer coaches are appointed on a yearly basis to lead the team and are assisted and supported throughout the season by the SPDSA Technical Department.

  • U15 to U17 Tier I and Tier II Program - Qualified Technical Leads are appointed to deliver, manage, and lead the program assisted and supported by volunteer development coaches
  • U15 to U17 Tier III Program - Volunteer coaches will be appointed to our Tier III teams, and will be supported by our Technical Staff upon request at an additional cost to the team. 

The best qualities of a coach for this stage of player are

  • Enthusiastic and encouraging
  • Demands standards
  • Knows the subject and the players
  • Technical and tactical knowledge of the game, and ability to communicate this to the players in a clear and simple manner
  • Appreciation for creativity and independent thinking players

Game and Tournament Play

Teams will be placed in appropriate league play.   Our philosophy is to provide players the best opportunity to develop with age and stage appropriate competition that enhances game understanding and passion for play with the focus on individual player development.  Coaches are supported by the Technical Department and are provided ongoing coaching development opportunities. 

Days of Play - To be determined by competition organization

Games Format 11 v 11 (10 v 10 plus goalkeepers) with offside in effect and unlimited substitutions

Tournament play is possible at the discretion of the team with approval of Technical Department

A Strength & Conditioning component will be added to the curriculum, for the U15 to U17 Tier I and Tier II age groups.  This will address both movement quality and strength/power deficits through which faulty movement patterns are corrected that cause injury and maximize performance gains.   Training sessions are based off the needs of the soccer players but also that of a well-rounded, properly balanced, efficiently moving athlete.    Sessions may be scheduled and will take place in conjunction with one of the Technical sessions.  Sessions will be run by the Bridge for the U15T1/TII and U17 T1/TII.    Teams that wish to have more than the allotted amount for each age group, are welcome to book them directly with the Bridge for an additional cost.  

Tier III teams that wish to have a Strength & Conditioning component, are welcome to book directly with either the Bridge or Firstline or their choice of Training Facility.
