CDA Slammers FC located in Orange, California is one of the most successful and highly respected youth soccer organizations in the United States. The program supports over 1,000 competitive players on over 50 teams from under 8 thru under 19 boys and girls as well as a recreational league. Players can begin in our recreational program at age four and continue developing as a player with us through the age of eighteen. There are few programs in Southern California where this process is possible. One of the many greatest achievements that the club can claim is the placement of hundreds of players into the top universities around the country.

Every player in CDA Slammers FC Orange is on a soccer development pathway designed to develop distinguished players, exemplary students and upstanding young adults.
Our program emphasizes skill, tactical awareness, confidence, determination, sportsmanship, team play, character development, and academic excellence. These aspirations are fostered by a professional coaching staff who is dedicated to each team and each player as they work together toward shared goals. Just like in any form of education, beginning this type of development in soccer now sets the players up for greater success throughout their soccer journey.
Our philosophy centers on the four corners of the game: Technical, Tactical, Physical and Psychological. Each player is challenged in a dynamic, competitive, and fun environment and is encouraged to make decisions under the guidance of a qualified coaching staff.
Players and coaches play within a structured player development model built upon enhancing each player and each team’s technical, tactical, physical, social and mental capabilities. Greater motor skill development (formation of new movements), supports improved technique (mastery and application), which leads to confidence in individual tactics (1v1 situations), followed by group tactics (combination of players) and ultimately team tactics.
Each player is a member of the CDA Slammers club and will benefit from all club resources. Our directors and coaches are connected at all levels operating under an integrated training philosophy and playing style. This creates a consistent learning environment for our players. The consistent use of club colors, logo, and style provides each member with a sense of belonging and we strive to promote and provide a family environment within the club and organize intra-club activities to create a family atmosphere.
