Age Group: U11 (Born 2012) thru U19 (Born 2004) Boys and Girls
Offered: Fall (7-9 Weeks) and Spring (7-9 Weeks) with Summer + Winter Training
Starting at the U11 age group (and older), Fondy Phoenix Select teams play against teams from other select clubs in the region and are a part of the Southeastern Soccer District Classic League (SECL) or the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association State League. Travel to games (7-9 each season) are required with half of the games scheduled here at the Fond du Lac soccer complex. Game are played on Saturdays and/or Sundays. Fall League games run typically early September to end of October and Spring Season league games typically run mid-April to mid-June. All teams are are led by WYSA approved licensed coaches.
Select teams for boys and girls at the U11 and older levels are formed by a tryout process. Not everyone who tries out is guaranteed a spot on a Fondy Phoenix Select team, though we will make every effort to place as many players as possible on appropriate teams based on skill level (including contacting other clubs if there are not enough spots in a particular age group). Tryouts are held each year, in mid June. Teams are formed each year, and new players are always welcome to try out. If you are not currently on an Fondy Phoenix Select team or move to the area in mid-season, please contact the Club and we will try our best to find you an appropriate spot.
Eligibility for the seasonal year (Fall & Spring) is determined by the player's age on birth year (see chart on our tryouts page).
U11 and U12 teams play in 9v9 format, U13 and older teams play 11v11, with proportionately larger rosters. U11 through U14 teams play in the Fall and Spring, U16 and older teams play only Fall (Girls) or Spring (Boys) due to the high school soccer season.
The cost to participate in travel differs based on age level. Annual fees range between $500 - $525 and includes all regular season games for fall and spring, 1 tournament each season (2 total), referee fees, state fees, coaching, admin, and field expenses. Additional costs include a uniform (approx $125) which the current uniform is good for this year and will be replaced with a new design coming for Fall 2023. Multi-month payment plans are available and also financial assistance for those in need. We strive to make it an all-inclusive experience so families are not surprised by costs along the way. This annual fee runs from August to July. For the High School, the fee is reduced as they only play one season.
