Recreational players in age group U5 and U6 will participate in
our Soccer Academy. With many of you new to soccer, let us explain more....
This academy is designed to combine sessions of what we call footskills
with regular games. Footskills are exercises which help develop basic
techniques for children. Of course we make sure that these footskills are
lively, entertaining and appropriate for their age level. In our regular games
too, the rules are modified to allow a fast paced game with many goal scoring
opportunities. Most children like the thrill of scoring goals and this, soccer experts
have found, helps foster development of soccer skills too. We hire soccer players
and trainers to help run the drills and games. This is included in your registration
fee. But these trainers can not do it alone.... there has to be a coach (parent) to
volunteer to help with each team so be sure to sign up to help.
Footskills take place on Monday nights with the U5 players at 6:00pm
and the U6 players at 7:15. Then games are scheduled on Thursday
and/or Friday nights.
Our hope and “big goal” for this academy is to give young children and you
as parents/coaches the opportunity to learn about the wonderful game of soccer.
