The Classic Program is designed for players who have desire a higher level of ability within their age group and gender and who have expressed a commitment to play the game of soccer. The commitment for Classic program is less than the Elite program however; it is more than Rec program. The program will continue to foster growth in skills and desire for further development. Playing time is not equal however everyone is guaranteed playing time. We understand there are multisport athletes; if you play other sports please contact your coach to discuss.
Classic teams will practice year-round however generally there may be downtime in November, December and July. Practices will include coach/club training, goal keeper training and strength and agility training. Training will be both indoor & outdoor held at Grignon Park or Kaukauna area school facilities.
