Our U13-16 club teams offer a vital opportunity for players to continue to develop at a level that will allow them to be successful. When we evaluate a player, we look at their trajectory and where we think they will be at 18 years old. Is the player a good listener and willing learner? Will they be a loyal and contributing member of the club? If the answer is yes, we want to keep these players in the club and help nurture them, as everyone develops at a different rate technically, tactically, and physically.
Far Post provides the same curriculum & instruction to club players as they do to premier. The only difference is that our club teams do not compete in the VT State Cup and travel less out of state.

Most players are quite busy with their school teams at this time of year. For our U13/14 players, we offer in house fall training & matches at Far Post. Traditionally, we have created U13/14 Coed teams in the U14 Fall Vermont Soccer League, but we have found the level of play is not high enough for our players. We plan on creating our own internal league for all U13/14 players that are interested. Click for Fall Sign-up Link.
For our U15/16 players, we do not offer anything, as players are in high school and busier with high school teams.
This is our indoor season at our home base, the Robert E. Miller Centre North at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction. The only thing that is mandatory is the team training session, with a number of additional opportunities each week that most players take advantage of. This allows the most dedicated players the opportunity to play 3-4 times a week, while also allowing some flexibility for those that play other sports.
Boys: Team training on Sundays, rotating time. Skills session Saturday morning for U13/14 players, 10:30am-12pm. Futsal Games Monday evenings (optional, but encouraged for session 1 and 2, mandatory and included in fees for session 3)
Girls: Team training on Sundays, rotating time. Skills session Saturday morning for U13/14 players, 10:30am-12pm. Futsal Games Thursday evenings (optional, but encouraged for session 1 and 2, mandatory and included in fees for session 3)

This is our outdoor season, kicking off with our Spring Training Weekend at Golden Goal Park. Teams will have 2 training sessions a week beginning May 1, likely at Veterans Park in So. Burlington or Centennial Field in Burlington. We will also compete in the Vermont Soccer League. Each team will go to a minimum of 2 outdoor tournaments. Typically this age group competes over Memorial Day weekend in Massachusetts and Father's Day weekend in Maine. The third (extra expense) would be a March early-season tournament in the Boston area (if there's enough interest).
The season will conclude after the Father's Day Weekend tournament.
