Teams from u9’s up to u17’s perform at an elite level to ensure better quality games. This enables clubs to develop their own local players who can realistically progress all the way to their first team.
Entry criteria for clubs are tough. Focusing on quality over quantity, all clubs involved have to show their development plans for their players along with constant access to higher level coaches.
The league is aimed at clubs who want to develop their players through a ‘best with best’ ethos.
