Utah Avalanche ~ Soccer Programs
At Utah Avalanche Soccer Club we have a variety of soccer programs for youths. From Recreation Soccer to top-tier ECNL, we have a soccer program to fit almost every age and ability.
We provide two Recreational Programs depending on the area that you live in. The first is based on the South Davis County Area for kids from age 4 to Seniors in High School. Our other program is in partnership with Sandy City Recreation where we help train and develop the 5 - 8 year olds within their city recreational league. We run Sandy City's 8 week Tiny Tots program in the fall and spring.
Step Up is a development program for kids U6 to U8 (ages 6-8). For players at this age, the focus should be all about the player. Players will develop from learning and gain experience through playing the game. Working with Utah Avalanche licensed coaches will help players develop a love for “The World’s Game” and also the freedom of thought, play, and fun that comes in an environment where kids feel happy and confident to try new moves, turns and tricks!
Avalanche Juniors is designed as a fun instruction-based environment for 5 to 12-year-olds at both the recreational and competitive levels. Our program combines learning in a fun and positive environment, and the excitement of game day through small-sided games. The program operates under the simple philosophy that kids learn by playing. Everyone plays virtually 100% of the time, in both practice and games. There will be no lines and lots of touches on the ball.
Utah Avalanche Competitive Programs (U13 - U19) are the premier option for growing, learning, and developing in youth soccer. Our competitive program participates in the UYSA (Utah Youth Soccer Association) league as well as DPL (Desert Premier League – run by US Youth Soccer). Our Competitive Program builds on the foundation players have learned throughout their time with Utah Avalanche Juniors programs, including philosophy, the Avalanche curriculum, and The Avalanche Way.
The ECNL was founded in 2009 as a challenge to the status quo of youth soccer, with a vision to be better. In its first years, the league supported only girl's programming, but in 2017, the landscape again demanded more and the ECNL Boys was founded, setting the stage for an amazing period of rapid growth, increasing quality, and further change in youth soccer.
