The player being close to KC is not an factor for who is selected to play in Tourneys and games, however attendance in training is. This Southampton Pro Academy is open to all soccer players from all clubs, from anywhere in Missouri and Kansas.
From the pool of players, coaches will choose ONLY those who deserve to travel with the team to each event. This will be based on performance at training. Once chosen, all players on the trip will play quality minutes for developmental purposes, but coaches and teams will be playing to win games. Developing a winning and competitive attitude is a key component of our program. Multiple age groups will travel to each event and parents are encouraged to participate in the trips.
