Since 1979, San Tan Soccer Club has been working with kids creating a path for players to develop, beginning with their first experience in soccer to their fullest potential as athletes. San Tan Youth Soccer Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We have an administrative staff and professional trainers; however, our organization is run primarily by volunteers.
San Tan Soccer Club has over 3000 kids playing in the recreational program and nearly 500 playing in the competitive program. San Tan Soccer Club offers good sized programs for kids of all skill levels from ages 4 to 18. While Chandler is home-town to most of the players, our sought after program pulls from all neighboring cities.
What programs does San Tan Soccer Club provide?
The ACADEMY program is for boys and girls, ages 4-7, of all abilities. The Academy program is part of the recreational youth development and is staffed with our professional coaches. The players will establish a love of the game through exciting soccer activities. These activities emphasize involvement, fun and the development of the childs motor skills.
The RECREATIONAL program focuses on teaching fundamental ball skills in a fun, positive atmosphere. All players play a minimum of 50% of each game. Coaching is primarily performed by volunteer parents. Professional trainers are available for recreational teams, at no additional cost.
The EXCEL program is the bridge between the Recreational Program and the Competitive ‘Legacy” program. These teams play in the Recreational league but are coached by the San Tan professional coaching staff. Our Excel program is open to all Boys and Girls in the U6 to U11 age groups that are looking for a competitive atmosphere in which to increase their playing ability.
The LEGACY program is our competitive side. The emphasis in the Legacy program is on individual skills development and team-building. Winning is important, but it is not the focus of play in the program. We are developing strong teams and strong soccer players. Players are introduced to a high level of play and coaching at a young age. Legacy teams play in a league against other soccer clubs throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area and sometimes further away. Legacy teams also play in a number of tournaments throughout the state, and sometimes out-of-state.
At San Tan Soccer Club there is a level of play available for all skill levels.
