Why STEPS Elite Philly? What makes us different?
Philly STEPS Elite is different because of our community feel. We have a strong culture that promotes teamwork, hard work, humility, and family. Our players enjoy playing together and their friendships go beyond the field. We look for athletes who are willing to take risks, try new things, and have fun while giving their all.
We are determined to attract strong players on “both sides of the river,” we practice at centrally located Radnor High School in Radnor. We currently have girls from South Jersey to Lehigh Valley to Unionville and part of what makes STEPS different is this diversity.
We are committed to having one team per age group so that we can focus all of our attention on that one team with the strongest players and the strongest coaching team possible. We are committed to having two coaches per team, the same coaching team will work with the team at every practice and tournament during the season. Coaches will change teams each season though so the girls are exposed to different coaching styles and personalities.
Due to our affiliation with STEPS NJ we are invited to and participate in all the top tournaments.
Recruiting is an important part of the club team program and our recruiting process includes “how to get started” info sessions, college coaches panels, as well as one on one meetings with Brooke Fritz, our recruiting advisor. Brooke is available throughout the year for individual meetings and the cost is included in our registration fee.
We have one set price per year and you should not expect to be asked for additional funds throughout the seasons.
