Youth Academy

Phoenix Rush Academy 2018 - 2019


During the season, academy pool players can move freely between teams to continue to develop each player.


Did you ever wonder why we play with small goals, small fields and games that feature less players then a traditional game? The answer is quite simple. Studies have shown that small sided games are most beneficial to young kids. Some points that support small sided games are as follows:

  • The game is the great teacher. The game is age-appropriate, easy to learn, and FUN. This provides an environment where the players can develop their soccer skills
  • The fewer players on the field, the more possible times a player will come in contact with the ball. In fact, players will find they have no choice; the ball will quickly find them!
  • We want our young soccer players to touch and play the ball more often and become more skillful with it!
  • Less players on the field = less complicated decisions.
  • Players need to feel worthy…they need to feel important!
  • More opportunity to solve problems that only the game can present.
  • More exposure to attacking and defending situations...
  • The smaller field size and fewer players will foster more goals.
