"New" Evolution Program Details

Evolution Program - Why?

Livermore Fusion Soccer Club has fielded questions and survey comments in regards to improving the player development pathway from Recreational Soccer to Premier Soccer. 

In the past the jump was too big for those players looking to progress into Premier Soccer at the older age groups or the players at the younger ages, key ages, did not receive the coaching and attention they needed to build a foundation of soccer ability. 

The Evolution Program is designed to do what is states, help players and parents evolve with Club and Professional Coach support throughout the ages U9 thru U15. 

 

OVERVIEW

Introduction

The NEW Fusion Evolution program (formerly Select) has been designed for players who want to take the next step towards raising their competitive level, without playing year round. The Evolution program runs only in the Fall season, which starts the first week in August and ends mid-November.

U9 Thru U12

  • Every player must tryout. This is not optional. Tryout information will be posted once the Club has a better idea of when we can return to the fields based on state mandates.
  • Teams will be fully coached by our Professional Fusion Premier staff with up to two selected parent volunteer assistant coaches. Teams will practice twice per week and participate in 8-10 league games during the season with their professional coach.

U13 thru U15

  • Every player must tryout. This is not optional. Tryout information will be posted once the Club has a better idea of when we can return to the fields based on state mandates. The reason for tryouts at these ages is to ensure rosters are built up of the best players who register for the age group. If we have 20 sign up, but are looking for a roster of 16, we will take the best 16 players.
  • Teams will be coached by a selected parent volunteer and will also receive 16+ professionally coached training sessions from a Fusion professional coach during the season. Teams practice at least twice per week, once with the professional coach, and a minimum of once with the parent coach. 

U16 thru U19

  • Tryouts will not be held for these age groups.
     
  • These teams will participate in a traveling Fall Regional Soccer league under NorCal Premier at the level of Nickel or Bronze. 
     
  • Players in these age groups must CLICK HERE to register

Tryouts - Every player within the U9-U15 age groups must tryout for the Evolution program. Tryout information to be announced.

Evolution is an AGE pure program offered to Boys and Girls within the U9 > U15 age groups. There is no limit to the amount of teams in the program but each team will be made up of approximately 11-12 players for the U9 and U10 teams, approximately 12-13 players for the U11 and U12 teams, and 16-18 players for the U13+ teams. 

Teams within the program will play under NorCal Premier at the level of Silver or below. As the teams are formed, Fusion will determine the appropriate level of play for each team, and register them appropriately for each team's level.

The NEW Evolution program will have 1-3 teams per age group/gender depending on enrollment and skill level.
