Is my child guaranteed a place on an SDFC team?
No one is guaranteed a place on an SDFC travel team. Based upon the number of players at the appropriate level or showing a certain level of potential, SDFC may offer more than 1 team per age group. SDFC will NOT create teams just for the sake of having teams. SDFC are only looking for certain attributes that are befitting of the SDFC program and will ensure individual growth.

What is the commitment?
All teams that are u14 and younger will compete in the fall, winter & spring.  Training will also be offered in the summer.  All teams that are u15 and older will compete in the late fall, winter & spring.  Training will also be offered in the fall.  Most players in the senior age groups will play high school soccer in the fall in addition to playing with SDFC.A players development will be reflected in their commitment to train. SDFC understands that conflicts do arise. Therefore, all players are given the opportunity to make up sessions with other teams in such cases.

What if my child wants to do more?

Are scholarships available?

What if my child does NOT make it into an SDFC team?
SDFC and SDA (Soccer Domain Academy) run programs to cater for each and every player’s development needs. Following the tryout, the SDFC Director of Coaching will contact families once evaluations are made regarding our immediate recommendation for your child.
