About the SuperLiga Program

Our U9 and U10 SuperLiga Academy Program (2012-2013 birth year), is open to boys and girls. The SuperLiga program will serve as a preparatory program for the Gulf Coast Texans Select Division in U11. The focus will be on establishing the correct foundation of skills and decision making needed to make the transition to Select Level play at U11. Players will receive professional coaching twice a week and experience a number of different game play formats to facilitate and encourage player development.

The SuperLiga Academy hopes to attract the best young players in the area and provide the elite development program that they need to develop their game. It will also be a great option for the accomplished recreational player who now needs more than a traditional recreational program can offer, but doesn't carry the commitment of travel soccer. 

• Professional Coaching
• Elite Technical Training
• Focus on skills, fundamentals, foundational decision making
• Variety of game play formats
• Fun learning environment

Tournament Entry Fees

These are collected in August for fall events and January for spring events. These can vary from $100-400 for the entire season, depending on age group and events entered into. Discuss with team manager if questions. 


Q: Why the shift away from Travel Teams at U9/U10? 
A: We want to put the focus on the individual player at this age group and subject them to extensive technical training, fast paced small sided games, and basic decision making. We believe that putting the emphasis on an individuals' development, rather than a winning in a team format, will produce more accomplished players for the future.

Q: Does this mean that this program will be less competitive? 
A: Quite the opposite. Our staff are very motivated to produce creative soccer players, and intend to create a very demanding environment, while also keeping it fun. 

Q: When will they play games?..and what Format? 
A: In house friendlies and local friendlies as well as SNAP league. Local tournaments in Foley, Home, Perdido and possibly Destin. We aim to play 2 weekend events per month. Weekend events include a minimum of 2 games. 

U9/U10 is 7v7. 

Q: Can my player play other sports? 

Yes! Practices are Monday and Wednesday nights from 6-7:15pm. We understand there could be conflict in a practice or event and that's okay. Just communicate with the team manager. 

This sounds GREAT! How do I sign up? 
A: The season begins August 2. If you missed tryouts, please email Chrissy at secretary@gulfcoasttexans.com
