The Competitive program is the next step for Academy players seeking to continue their competitive soccer journey beyond the age of eleven. Please note that the creation of competitive teams for ages 11 and 12 is contingent upon player availability and desire among the Academy Program participants. The Competitive program continues to focus on developmental aspects of soccer, but by nature has a greater emphasis on strategies and winning and has increased travel and fees.
Competitive soccer is a league in which travel is required. The travel will range across the state on any given weekend. Laurel Storm will host several games throughout the season. The competition experience of scheduled teams is more advanced and is broken into two primary classifications: Classic and Premier. Competitive play requires a higher level of commitment from coaches, players, and parents. Financial obligations including additional uniform requirements and additional coaching fees may apply.
In the event Coed teams are formed, the teams must play in the boys divisions. It is our intent to avoid formation of Coed teams, however, this can only be avoided by registration of individual gender specific players. If we are unable to register enough gender specific athletes, the club either has to form coed teams or accept that certain gender and age specific groups may not have teams to play on.
