Competitive Soccer Program (ages 11 through 18)

Sereno Soccer Club is the #1 Soccer Club in Arizona and is perennially ranked as one of the top clubs both regionally and nationally.  We are the only club in Arizona and one of four clubs in the United States to be recognized as an Official Football Development Parner with Chelsea FC of the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League.  In addition, we are one of the few clubs across the country who are considered a Priority Club Partner with Adidas.  Our affiliation with excellence is one of the reasons we are the best.

Our competitive program has a track record of success for over 30 years.  We have a history of developing our athletes, not only as soccer players but as quality people.  We put a plan in place for every component of the game (technical, tactical, psychological and physical), at every age group (u6 through u18) and for each gender (boys and girls).  Through our camps and clinics program, players can attend extra sessions based on individual needs, to maximize their growth and development.  All of this preperation is supplemented in our older age groups with additional guidance targeted at maximizing opportunities to attend college, achieve scholarships and play at higher levels.  Sereno continually stays on the forefront of the game due to our staff’s relationship with leaders of the sport in collegiate and professional programs as well as state, regional and national teams.  We bring this information to the players and are always on the cutting edge of player development.

The competitive program is broken down into 3 phases, based on age of the player:

Each phase has established teaching objectives, as developed by our Directors of Coaching.  Training sessions are filled with creative, dynamic and enjoyable activities which ensure growth and development for every player and success for every team.  Games and Events continually put our players in challenging, yet achievable environments.  Our framework instills character, self-esteem, confidence and sportsmanship within each player.

We offer the competitive program in 3 regions:

  • North
  • SouthEast
  • Nogales

The regionalization of our program acknowledges the demand for the excellence that Sereno brings to the soccer community.  This geographic diversification of our programs allows more players to experience the excellence that the club offers without the impact of extensive travel, especially at the younger ages. 

We look forward to the continued success of our players and teams and having you as a part of the club.
