The Developmental program builds on skills learned at First Touch. The program intends to produce independent thinkers who are confident and understand the basic technical and mental skills of the game. It is a great way to introduce a child unfamiliar with soccer to the sport or supplement the training of an existing player. Activities will concentrate on technique and fun and sessions will be group oriented.
Practice Sessions: Developmental players will be broken up into groups/pools and be trained at different stations – just like the First Touch Program. Those stations all focus on a higher level of skills such as ball control, touches, passing, dribbling, and simple fitness — all in a fun and age appropriate set up.
Games: All games will be played on Friday evenings at all sites, some nights may be a combination at one site. Matches are played to further player development under the direction of the professional staff. You will be sent an email the day before so you know what color jersey to wear to the games. Players are then divided up into teams on small sided fields. There is no goalkeeper.
After players have completed this program, they will then decide if they would like to play in the Competitive Recreational (CompRec) program or move into our PreSelect program where they will be placed on different skill leveled team.
