Youth Leadership Program

Age 12 & up, please contact for more information about being a referee or trainer.

As kids get to middle school/high school statistics show that 75% drop out of sports. ABSC is all about teaching kids skills to live a life-long, healthy lifestyle. Our youth leadership and development program mentors our older players to be referees and trainers, so when their lives become too busy to play club soccer then can still be involved in their soccer community. Also, our program helps them learn necessary life-skills (leadership, organization, conflict resolution, responsibility…) as they prepare for college.

Again, contact for further details.
