The Thunder Program is a competitive program devoted to developing young athletes. Thunder provides the most competitive environment with highly qualified pro staff and a curriculum built to improve young athletes in the four components of the game: physically, technically, tactically and psychologically. Thunder’s age appropriate curriculum is inspired by U.S Soccer and is designed to prepare young athletes with the necessary skills to pursue soccer opportunities such as high school, Olympic development program, college, and the professional level. Our teams strive to represent the core values of The Arizona Soccer Club with passion, respect, integrity, discipline and excellence. (P.R.I.D.E)
Thunder's programs are designed to offer each level of player an opportunity to learn and compete while focusing on the overall development of the total player. Our goal is to develop and give each player the tools to thrive at the next level using their knowledge of systems of play, positions, and game concepts using the number system. The Thunder style of play is possession and transition and is represented at all ages throughout the club. We desire our kids to understand the attacking and defensive principles of the game while also having the technical ability to influence games individually. We will provide opportunities to promote healthy living, good sportsmanship,and leadership skills.
