GENERAL INFO ON QUEEN CITY FC 2002-2006 HIGH SCHOOL BOYS ACADEMY
Queen City FC had tryouts in July for the 2002-2006 High School Boys Academy. Those interested in play at this level with Queen City FC should be more committed to soccer and have the ability to compete at a level with a general knowledge of the game and preferably have had prior technical skill training. We use our evaluations during tryouts to make team decisions on players in attendance.
While we remain committed to our mission of being a flexible club that is affordable for families and is accepting of the multi-sport athlete, our expectation is that communication of absences is essential.
Due to high numbers in our High School aged group players, we are evolving with other area clubs as is what is best practice now for these age groups in terms of HS skill development by creating a pool training environment. During the 2019/2020 winter/spring season, we had experimented with this in training and saw success. We will pool training with our 2 or 3 high school aged teams and during the tournament season and with our spring games we will seperate into appropriate level teams dependent upon number. This will help us have sufficient training numbers and allow us to create a proper training environment, while challenging our players in games with the appropriate competition. Once final team selections are made in late winter players will be placed on one roster as their primary roster. The team groupings will look something like this:
U16 Division 2 team (predominantly 2005s and 2006s)
U19 Division 2 team (predominantly older 05s and younger 04s)
U19 Division 1 team (predominantly 02s-higher level 04s)
Our training sessions are 90 minutes for this age group and are consistent with the four stage curriculum as laid out by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).
