If your young soccer player shows promise, you may want to consider higher-level teams in the Lansing area. Local club teams offer experienced, licensed and paid coaches to develop young talent to its fullest. Club teams also offer a higher level of competition and more travel. There are three "premier" level clubs in the Lansing area:
Additionally, some Grand Ledge players have joined teams with the Grand Rapids club, Midwest United.
Tryouts for club teams usually are held in June of each year. Club teams will practice at least three times during the week and play one or two games on the weekends. Each season might consist of 8-10 league games and 1-2 tournaments. All "premier" level clubs provide some indoor, winter training and specialized training for goalkeepers. Players will be traveling throughout Michigan for games. Some tournaments may be played out-of-state. Costs can run from $1,000 - $2,500/year (both spring and fall seasons) depending on the number of tournaments and travel expenses.
Most club teams hold camps or training sessions during the year that allow non-club players to participate. You may want to try a camp or drop-in training session prior to trying out to assess the skill level of the players in the club and whether your child would be a good fit.
