U11-U12 Juniors

Ages  9-12 are the most critical development years of a soccer player’s career. It is at these ages where the basic fundamental skills of soccer are mastered that allow players to compete and be successful as soccer players at the next level of play and where they develop a true love for the game. 

The PVU Juniors Program is designed for players ages 11-12 years old who have completed our Academy Program and also for players who have a higher level of ability, commitment, and interest level in soccer. 

This program includes:

  • 3 Seasons: Fall, Winter, and Summer.

  • Tryouts in July are for Fall

  • Winter Program is by sign-up and focuses solely on technical development.

  • Tryouts in February are for the Summer season.

  • We hold different tryouts to ensure we're placing players at the appropriate skill/development level

  • Families can choose to participate in 1, 2, or all 3 seasons.
