Academy Mission Statement

Mission Statement: Academy Program will provide a player-centered Developmental program that focuses on creating a nurturing, educational soccer environment.

Objectives

  • Provide appropriate competition
  • Provide appropriate training to game ratio
  • Encourage creative freedom in training & in games
  • Create free player movement within age groups to ensure the top players can play up and be challenged
  • Reduce fear of failure by eliminating the pressure of winning games with more emphasis  on individual player development
  • Eliminate labeling players at such a young age by creating player pools instead of assigning them to “A”, “B” & “C” teams with the goal of developing a larger pool of talented players at the u8 and u9 age groups
  • Appropriate travel to play time ratio

Structure

  • Clubs will participate in one game per week
  • Game formats will be 7 v 7
  • Emphasis on players making decisions on the field by coaches limiting their coaching points to natural stoppages & ensuring the players learn to solve some problems on their own
  • Emphasis on keeping the games flowing by limiting number of time substitutions are made
  • Emphasis on setting technical goals to measure success, no scores/standings
