Elite Academy

Phoenix Premier FC Boys Program is a proud member of the Elite Academy League (EA).

The Elite Academy League is composed of member clubs that represent Elite competitive clubs in their market and have shown to be of the standard and will benefit from being part of this platform. By unifying clubs from within the conferences, we have maintained the defining standards of previous elite platforms with a collective approach to making sure the platform sits atop the youth landscape.

EA Mission: 

"The Elite Academy League has a mission to provide a National platform with a standards based league giving clubs the ability to provide full developmental model and pathway with top competition and exposure."

EA Vision: 

"Our vision is to sit atop the youth landscape providing Elite Academy clubs and leaders the opportunity to guide the league and have autonomy to develop the game in the US.
This league will serve to provide a seamless elite pathway for clubs and players to excel in the competitive landscape."

Phoenix Premier FC EA fields boys teams in the U13-U14 age groups for 2024-2025, and U13-U19 in 2025-2026, competing on a regional and national scale as a member of the South-West Desert Conference.
