Fall Development

DEVELOPMENT SESSION DESCRIPTIONS

4v4 SESSION
The 4v4’s recreate, as much as possible, the playing environments in which the world’s greatest players first learned and then developed the skill required for top-level performance:

– Plenty of individual possession, ball control and touches
– Trying new skills without fear, ridicule, or recrimination
– Taking players on and challenging defenders
– Little or no pressure from significant others
– A vibrant, creative and fun atmosphere

Players will play in groups of 4 and rotate through 4 different field layouts, all designed to develop different areas of their game.

TECHNICAL SKILLS
These technical skills sessions are designed to improve your foot skills and technical ability in any situation on the field. The session will be broken down in to 4 sections;

– SAQ (Speed, Agility, Quickness)
– Ball mastery
– Core session
– SSG (Small Sided Games)

During our technical skills sessions our aim is to get at least 2000 positive touches on the ball.

GOAL KEEPER CLINIC
At these Goal Keeper sessions, players will learn the technical skills needed to be successful and tactically aware in goal. The sessions will be high intensity in a fun and challenging environment. We will practice in game-like situations and the players will have a lot of 1-1 guidance. These sessions are designed for players of all abilities interested in goal keeping, whether goal keeping is their favored position or they are looking to learn it as a new skill. We aim to grow players’ confidence in between the sticks as well as their competency.

INJURY PREVENTION (new!)

Our female and male players are more susceptible to different types of injuries. This clinic (for Grades 5-8) will target these and give players the tools to complete injury prevention and strengthening exercises to decrease the chance of injury and strengthen core and lower body muscles. Players will learn warm-up routines and culminate in game play to make this a truly valuable AND fun part of their soccer season.​
