The CSA/AZSC Thunder Development program has a track record of success. We have a history of bridging athletes, teams and coaches who are looking for the next level and want to transition to competitive play, The goal of the program is to prepare players for future transition into the AZSC Thunder Program, and is aimed at ages U11 and up. We are always on the cutting edge of player development, and we put a plan in place for every component of the game (technical, tactical, psychological and physical), at every age group (u11 through u18) and for each gender (boys and girls). The Thunder Development Program is volunteer coached by licensed coaches who are dedicated to soccer and player development.
