Winnipeg Phoenix Football Club!
Developmental Soccer is a level of soccer that exposes players, aged 9 through to 12 years old, to an environment that focuses on skill development, game sense, and individual and team achievement. This program is not simply for players who demonstrate a high level of skill or talent, but is intended for those players who have a passion for the game, are committed to practicing, and want to play in an environment that fosters skill development and achievement. Other characteristics for placement onto a team will be an athlete’s willingness to learn, drive, determination, and their commitment to always try their best for their team and for their personal development
How to get onto a Winnipeg Phoenix FC (WPFC) Developmental team?
In order to be placed on a Developmental team potential players must register for the Outdoor program in February. After registration, new players will be invited attend team sessions in order to be assessed, which is the vehicle that the Winnipeg Phoenix FC forms balanced teams at each gender and age group.
Registration for the 2013 Outdoor season is now available on the
Winnipeg Phoenix FC website, www.phoenixsoccer.ca.
Commitment Levels for Developmental Soccer
The time commitment for Developmental soccer is greater than what would be expected for recreational soccer players. Developmental players can expect to practice at least twice a week and play a game a week. This is a requirement of the Club. They will also be expected to participate in local tournaments as well as out-of-Province tournaments. A high level of commitment is expected from developmental players.
The Outdoor season for developmental players will run from the first week of May (practices will likely begin in late March or early April) through to the second week of July when they will break until after the August long weekend. The season continues through to the end of September.
In relation to playing time, Winnipeg Phoenix FC supports fair play guidelines. This being conditional on a player’s participation in all team scheduled events. i.e.: you practice-you play
WPFC Training Center
In the Developmental program we see Academy participation as a necessary part of every player’s development. Not only will it place them in front of our Technical Staff on a regular basis, but it will also allow each player to be grouped accordingly and thereby work with players of a like skill set. To that end, we thereby incorporate our “Spring (May and June) Academy” fees into the registration cost of our Outdoor Season Developmental League registration fees.
Winnipeg Phoenix FC (WPFC) Premier and Premier-Development Programs
The Premier program provides training and competition to our high performance male and female athletes. Premier teams participate in the Premier League of the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA), in tournaments and in the Manitoba provincial Cup which leads to nationals. The Winnipeg Phoenix FC program encompasses the Under-13 to the Under-18 divisions.
Players may be selected from this program to participate with the Manitoba Provincial “All Star” Program and those who excel at this level may be offered an opportunity to participate in the Regional and National Training Centres. Ultimately, these players could be invited to represent Canada at the National Soccer level.
Winnipeg Phoenix FC offers both Premier and Premier Developmental teams for players between the age of 13 and 18. Prior to the season kick-off, the Winnipeg Phoenix FC will choose the top available 16 to 20 players who will form a Premier team in each gender/age category. Depending on the remaining number of qualified players available, the Club will form a Premier Developmental team (a reserve team pool). Once formed, these teams will compete against other Premier and Premier Developmental (reserve) teams within Manitoba.
The Winnipeg Phoenix FC Premier Development program participates in the WYSA Premier Development League (PDL). The PDL is the springboard to the Premier program by providing a foundation for players that aspire to reach the highest levels of the game. The PDL program is for boys and girls participating in the Under-13 to Under-18 divisions.
In order to be placed on a Premier or Premier Developmental team potential players must register with the Winnipeg Phoenix FC, in early February, and new players will attend a trial in order for Winnipeg Phoenix FC to select and register teams for the upcoming season.
A high level of talent and skill are not the only requirements to play for Winnipeg Phoenix FC. Team coach feedback and Winnipeg Phoenix FC Technical Staff observation will also provide the other indicators for placement on a team. These indicators will be the athletes’ willingness to learn, drive, determination, and commitment to always provide their best efforts for their team and for their personal development.
While every attempt is made to identify capable athletes, a player most certainly can be moved between Premier or Premier Developmental if their commitment, attitude, effort, willingness to learn or skill-set changes. The Winnipeg Phoenix FC recommends and supports player progression.
Players will be provided the opportunity to “move up and move-down” relative to their abilities. Progression and improvement are our focus. Winnipeg Phoenix FC’s premier player philosophy is that a player is constantly expected to earn their spot on the team.
When does the season start and end?
Teams will start pre-season training and preparations at the end of March or early April. The WYSA outdoor season begins the last weekend of April of each year (weather depending). Teams will break the second week of July, resume play in August and continue with playoffs and finals throughout September.
What is the commitment with a Premier or Premier Developmental team?
A greater time and financial commitment is expected from Premier players. Premier players can expect to meet about four times per week, while Premier Developmental teams can expect to meet three times per week. This does not include preparation and participation in the various local and out-of towntournaments. Tournament participation will be approved by our Technical Staff relative to each team’s abilities. However, a minimum of one out-of-town travel tournament (and fund raising) should be expected for each team.
In relation to playing time, Winnipeg Phoenix FC supports the WYSA fair play guidelines, conditional on a player’s participation in all team scheduled events. i.e.: you practice-you show respect-you play….
