PASS FC is a non-profit organization formed in 2001 to bring quality soccer to players in and around Grand Rapids, Michigan.
PASS offers 3 playing levels based on age and ability.
Select soccer is the entry level program in PASS FC for U7-U19. Tryouts are held in mid-June for the soccer year which includes the fall season (August-October) and the spring season (March-June). Both seasons are required for U7-U14. There are 2 practices per week, 8 games per season - 4 home and 4 away, with one 2-day tournament for U9-U14 and optional winter training, winter leagues and extra tournaments for U9-19. The player fee includes FREE Speed & Agility training with a fitness professional for U9 and up.
Academy soccer can begin as early as U9 and follows a Pre-Premier/Director's Academy training curriculum. Commitment increases at this level with 1-3 more tournaments, winter training and winter leagues. Academy soccer is for the Select player who desires a challenge and wishes to play more soccer than offered in our Select Program. Faster improvement is seen because of additional playing opportunities and training sessions.
PREMIER and DIRECTOR'S LEAGUE
Premier players play with and against the best players in the state beginning at the U11 age group (Director's League). This level encourages quicker decisions and more physical play on the field. The training is more advanced and coaches hold higher licenses. Tryouts for this level are more selective and players commit to year round training and additional tournaments.
PASS is a developmental soccer club.
The PASS Training curriculum includes the four components of soccer: tactical, technical, physical and psycho-social. It is structured to provide age appropriate activities and child-centered learning. Players are offered extra training programs and the opportunity to move to a developmentally suitable level as they progress.
