U9-U10 Staff

The paid coaches are a combination of collegiate soccer players, parents, as well as coaches who have been with Blackhawks for several years.

Player Evaluations

Players registered in Blackhawks developmental programs will be assessed mid-summer for fall placement and again during winter for the following summer team placement. These dual evaluations—unique to our club—ensure the best match between players and their programs. We encourage all interested players to attend, but attendance at evaluations is not necessary to register. Evaluations at this age are used to:

    • Place developmental-aged boys and girls on summer teams with players of similar skills and ability
    • Determine the number of teams to be registered at each level
    • Enable the Developmental Director to adjust the curriculum based on the players participating
