The cornerstone of each CE Premier team experience is the Academy’s age group specific curriculum which features a comprehensive list of Target Competencies© which create a developmental pathway for players from U6 to U19.  Target Competencies© are defined as the technical skills and game principles players are required to possess in order to be successful both now and in the future. We are in this together!  Classics Eagles promises to engage players and parents in the developmental process through team, academy level, and club wide communication efforts as well as one of kind CE Education Program for Players, Parents and Coaches.  We look forward to serving your family through the game of soccer during the next year!  


The Classics Eagles Premier Development Academy (PDA) includes both U11 & U12 boys and girls teams playing in the 9v9 game format. The PDA’s player-first development emphasis demonstrates a strong commitment to the technical advancement of each player without the short-term pressures of game results.  Classics Eagles directors and staff will nurture and guide in a healthy, age-appropriate manner, a child’s competitive spirit and desire to “win” games.  That said game results are not permanent. What becomes permanent through hard work, sacrifice and patience is a life-long love for training and believing that development is a process!  Consistent standards set forth by CE Professional Directors allow coaches to provide a learning environment that will challenge the young players to become independent, creative, problem solving thinkers on the field. Through the PDA’s year-long curriculum, Target Competencies©, and professional coaching staff, players will

 

  • Enhance the technical skills previously learnt in the Youth Development Academy
  • Gain exposure to new skills needed to manage the game’s demands and expectations in 9v9 format
  • Expand tactical awareness and aptitude of small group concepts in preparation for 11v11 game format
  • Learn value of being physically ready to perform; healthy, athletic lifestyle (SAQ and CE Education)
  • Develop tools that improve confidence and in-game performance; sport psychology & sportsmanship

 

Game results do not define a player’s value or success, or how good he/she is as a soccer player.  Rather, a successful PDA player will feel comfortable in possession of the soccer ball, demonstrate good decision making and exhibit great sportsmanship on and off the field.  Our teams play to win but the developmental process and the manner in which we play determines if we are winning and losing.
