The most notable benefit of this program is the pooling of players, i.e. matching players with other players of similar ability. This creates a competitive training environment where players challenge one another and develop in the process. Registering the various teams with the most suitable leagues is an important part of this process from a player-parent satisfaction point of view.
Our Competitive program starts at U11 and runs through U19. At U13 our Premier pathway is introduced. This program is designed for players looking to play at a regional/national level and with interests in collegiate play in the future. Teams for each will be formed through try-outs. Sporting Nebraska FC will provide training facilities for these teams. In addition to seasonal training, the select player will participate in winter training at one of the Sporting Nebraska FC official training centers. The winter training program will address technical improvement and tactical awareness within small-sided games.
Our Competitive program starts at U11 and goes through U19. There will be 1-3 teams in each age group - Elite, Gold, and possibly a Navy.
