Developmental Leagues: 10-week leagues that introduce children in grades K-2 to the basics of sports. We offer seasonal leagues for soccer, basketball and baseball. Outreach is conducted at public and charter schools in South Philadelphia and games and practices take place on weekday evenings at local recreation centers. The focus of this program is to develop fundamental skills and an understanding of rules of the game; to begin learning about teamwork, hustle, communication and playing with class; and to foster a lifelong appreciation of physical activity. Leagues are managed by Monarchs staff with assistance from parents and volunteers. Players who demonstrate significant interest in the sport, as well as some level of athletic competence and an ability to work well with coaches and peers, are frequently invited to join the Anderson Monarchs travel program.
Travel Teams: A year-round sports program that begins in 3rd grade. Players are selected based on interest and attitude. A cohort of 12-15 players stays together year-round, playing soccer, futsal (indoor soccer) basketball, and baseball together in city and suburban leagues. Our program focuses on both on-field and off-field success.
