U8 - U19 Competitive Youth Club Teams in Boys and Girls Division
Our youth club teams compete is MOSSL, Buckeye Premier, or OSSL depending on age and ability. These teams compete in the Fall and Spring club season. Our teams are coached by our talented and experienced staff, which train players to make their own decision by helping them calibrate their intuition based on context.
Physical, Technical, Tactical, Psychological/Socio-Cultural
From U8-U12 our developmental focus is the Technical and Physical components
From U13 - U15 our developmental focus begins to more intentionally integrate the Tactical component to player development
From U16 - U19 our developmental focus tries to bring all the developmental components together to breed confidence through success, achievement, and outstanding team play.
At all stages of player development we acknowledge and emphasize psychological development as the key to sustaining and building on success. In addition the socio-cultural implications of playing on a team require players to broaden their view of the world to allow for them to reach their full potential within the context of a collective.
Located at 4395 Weaver Court in HIlliard, FC Columbus youth club players have the huge advantage of having their own indoor facility to use for team and individual training especially during the cold winter months (or days when weather closes the fields). The ability to have your own controlled environment in order to continue and build on the progress from the Fall is invaluable.
