Training/Curriculum

Phoenix Premier FC Academy Program has one focus and that is to develop a player technically. We have built a proven model that will provide players the technical training to be able to succeed in soccer.

Players in the Academy Program will work towards mastering a technical training curriculum that will prepare them for 4v4, 7v 7, 9v9 games and eventually the 11v11 games played by older age groups. The Premier Academy Curriculum is specifically designed to be consistent with the Phoenix Premier FC competitive program.
