Player Development Program
The Utah Storm Soccer Club is a player development organization. Key to our plans is the development of Youth Soccer Players to support our local High School teams and to give those interested a chance to compete for ODP and College soccer opportunities. To meet this objective, the Utah Storm offers a variety of player development resources.
Team Training During the Spring and Fall Soccer Seasons, our teams will have access to one of our highly expereinced "peak trainers". These trainers will meet with teams to run sessions, assist coaches in running sessions, and evaluate during games.
Coaches Education/Training Each of our club coaches will have access to training put on by our Director of Coaching staff, which consists of 2 USSF A licensed coaches and 2 USSF B licensed coaches.
Club Academy The Utah Storm Academy programs offer kids a challenging and exciting environment to learn and grow in the sport of Soccer. For players age pre-K through High School our programs helps develop skills, confidence and fitness to fulfill their soccer dreams. Our Grass Roots, Development and Premier Academies are designed to give players additional training and development opportunities.
