Fifteen boys were selected to play on Temecula United’s U11 Academy Team. Into their third year as a team now, the B03 Academy team picks up six new players in preparation for the new 11v11 challenge.
Accepted into the 2014 San Diego Developmental Academy (SDDA), the team will be jumping up two flights of competition after winning the league last season and coming in second the year before.
The SDDA is quickly gaining the reputation as the most competitive youth soccer league in southern California. With only two flights of play and a strict acceptance policy, the boys are privileged to represent Temecula as the most northern club in the league.
“It is imperative that we continue to push ourselves as a team and seek out the best competition we can find. Promoting out of Presidio League and into the SDDA is a huge honor but will come with some very tough challenges. We know we have a lot of work to do over the next several months to prepare but we are confident we will compete well. Too often good teams do not leave their comfort zone and they quickly get out paced in the years to come.
This team will continue to challenge itself all the way to the top competition in California and beyond. With a 90 percent retention rate into our third season as a team, the chemistry of the squad is there, along with the addition of the six new extremely talented players we picked up at tryouts,” said coach Matt Sayers.
