Fall & Winter Clinics

We are excited to announce several player development options this fall and winter.  For the fall we are running 3 specialized clinics plus an after school option in partnership with Arlington Recreation, and for the winter we will once again be running ‘Street Soccer with Paige’.  Details and registration information are described below.

FALL DEVELOPMENT

4v4
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
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.

To sign up and register for any of the sessions above please login to your family account, as a Returning User, on our new development registration site here.

Note the fee is $25 for each 4 week block.
