Age Specific Training:
Soccer development with emphasis on speed, agility, balance, coordination, and basic fundamentals of the game. Technical skill (how to properly touch the ball) and ball mastery (getting touches on the ball) is essential to become a better player and move forward with tactical team play, combination play, and positional and game awareness. Young players between the ages of 6-11 require thousands of touches on the ball. Dribbling, passing and receiving, and shooting are the focus at that age. These players also enjoy playing in game so allowing the players to play 4 vs 4 is very important. The game is where the players can express themselves. Be creative and show their personality. Players between the ages of 12-15 continue to develop their first touch through passing and receiving, but also transition into learning the tactics of the game through positioning, spacing, combination play, ball oriented defense, and systems of play. Leadership and communication on the field is important to be a good teammate, as well as understand their role and position on the field.
