Black Level Teams

Development & Direction (Self-Select)

Our Goal
Manitou FC is committed to excellence and putting our players first. Our main goal at the Black Level is to focus on each individual player development.  Our focus will be to help each player track their personal goals, identify areas of needed development and to successfully move on to the next level of competition. At this level level Manitou FC will provide players with high level training and guidance, to gain the ability to sharpen their skills and accomplish their individual goals. Development varies greatly from player to player, and Manitou FC is committed to helping all players receive the appropriate training and competition to push them to the next level.  

  • Varying exposure to competition to best support individual player growth .
  • Player reviews twice a year based on the Ability Inventory for better tracking of progress
  • Zoom sessions will be offered for tactical training.
  • Constant monitoring of player development through ongoing communication between coaches at the Black and Orange Level.
  • Expectations that players on the Black Level will guest play throughout the year at the Orange Level to help challenge them and monitor their progress.
  • Primary focus on individual player development, secondary focus on team play.
  • Each player could have the opportunity to guest play on multiple teams to provide varying experiences and opportunities to growth and competition.
  • Placement at the Black Level will be a “self-select” process that the player and parent choose to fit their commitment and lifestyle needs.
