Advanced Program for Competitive Players
Our Advanced Program (U11-U14) is the competitive portion of Mountain Rush. We will challenge players to grow technically, tactically, and mentally. We foster a very competitive environment within training to allow players to compete and raise their level of play. We want players and teams moving up the ladder in a very progressive manner and understanding the challenges and demands needed to play soccer as they advance.
Players will compete for a spot on advanced teams, and the emphasis in training will be on developing players that want to move on to competitive play throughout their time in High School. The focus is team play, strategy, higher level individual skill development, and higher level soccer.
All players in the advanced program will work with paid coaches and/or Directors . These coaches have experience in competitive play and certifications in coaching and training players. Advanced players will have more weekly training than recreational teams, and they will play at home and away, competing against teams around the Front Range and in Evergreen.
Players will develop along personal goals, and we expect players to have a sense of their strengths and weaknesses, what positions they prefer and excel in, and areas they want to develop within their training. They should also be ready to advance in a team environment, learning how to better work with others to improve play.
Coaches will increase the level of competitiveness in this arena, encouraging players to develop their abilities to succeed in an environment where another player may covet their spot on the field.
Within the Advanced Program there is a very detailed curriculum that standardizes the development of the players at these ages and prepares the players for competitive High School Programs. Players come into the Advanced program at U11 ready to learn the 9v9 game and start competing at higher levels. Players in the program will finish at U14 ready for High School tryouts. We encourage the mindset and focus that will carry players to eventually play on college teams and beyond. We will work to condition players to compete and to understand what they need to give to the sport if they are going to continue to succeed.
The Advanced Program offers many layers of additional training as part of the program which include: 3 training sessions, Goalie training, Advanced Training Program, Functional Training, and leadership training.
