The Excel program is the bridge between the Recreational Program and the Competitive "Legacy” program. These Excel teams will play in the Recreational league but are coached by the San Tan Soccer Club professional coaching staff. Our Excel teams will play in their own age groups in a flighted age bracket within our recreational league. During the Fall and Winter seasons, the Excel U7-U11 teams will play in our club sponsored Tournaments; Holiday Classic (December) and Ostrich Tournament (March). For our Spring Excel season the Excel teams play only in the Recreational league and end their season at the end of the Recreational league season in May. There are no San Tan Soccer Club sponsored Tournaments in the spring. Although these teams differ from our competitive Legacy teams (Legacy teams are formed in May) they give players a chance to play on a team that has the same support program the competitive Legacy teams have including the Legacy coaching staff.
