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, all of our teams train together every week. Depending on the age and level of the team, training sessions may be once a week, twice a week or more.
Summer Camps As part of your membership in the Utah Storm Soccer club each team is given a one-week summer camp. These camps are generally 5 days long and run for 2 hours per day. During the camp players work as a team on to develop skills and conditioning. The real benefit of these camps is that the players are working together with their teammates who will be playing with them during the competition seasons.
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. For more information about these programs, please visit our Academy and Camps page.
