      Desert Elite Developmental - For players willing to make a more significant commitment.  There are typically be 2 practices per week, and all teams play in a Valley-Wide League with usually 2 or more weekends dedicated to tournaments. There are additional fees for uniforms, training and tournaments.  Season starts in September and runs through February/March.

      Desert Elite Competitive - Our highest level of play for players U9 through U18, with all teams playing in a State-Wide League.  Includes multiple practices per week, additional fees for uniforms, coaching, training and tournaments.  Playing time is dependent on coach.  Typically 5 or more weekends dedicated to tournaments.  Season could run into March/April.  Out-of-State travel is likely for our most advanced teams.
