High School Premier Program
About this program
Eugene Metro FC seeks to provide an organized, meaningful, and exciting soccer experience for each of our high school age players and teams. We realize that each team will have different goals and means to reach those goals. For some players and teams, more significant out-of-state competition and traveling will be desired. For others, individual and team goals may be to improve individual technical skills and to be competitive in Oregon. The EMFC Director of Coaching will work with the Head Coaches to develop an appropriate season plan for each team.
EMFC teams will seek to compete at both a state and regional level. When appropriate and desired, Eugene Metro FC will assist and support each player as he/she begins to identify and potentially select possible college soccer programs. Eugene Metro FC supports strong academic achievement for high school players, including those students seeking future college-level soccer opportunities.
Players are expected to have strong technical skills previously covered in youth level soccer. U-15 through U-18 coaches will evaluate these technical skills immediately upon forming teams and determine an adequate training schedule to master all technical skills appropriate for competitive high school level soccer players.
