Our curricula will help improve your child's soccer skills and knowledge in a safe, fun and educational environment.
When is 2nd grade in-town offered?
Fall and Spring. 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. Smith field
How is the program set up?
Players will also learn the basics of soccer match play via 3v3 tournaments focusing on positions, start of play and dead ball situations. The games and matches develop safe play, teamwork, communication and interest in soccer while still having lots of FUN! As players learn and grasp the basic fundamentals of soccer, focus can shift towards the WHEN WHERE and WHY in order to get a better understanding of the game of soccer. For example, the player will learn WHEN to dribble, WHERE to dribble and WHY we dribble. The coaches ensure that foot skills, passing and shooting are reinforced and developed through a variety of coaching activities. Conditioned games (4v4, 5v5 and 6v6) are used to focus on the WHEN, WHERE and WHY we perform certain skills. The players will also develop their positional sense and spacial awareness in a tournament played at the end of every session (if time allows). At the end of the spring we will try an put the children in "real" 6v6 matches to get them ready for travel soccer in the fall.
