AGE GROUP TRAINING

These training sessions are open and free to all players in the 09 to 04 age groups for one hour of additional and optional training each week during the fall and spring seasons.  Our technical directors Gino Pucillo and Keith Lambert will focus on technical skill development during these sessions. It is acceptable to sign up and not be able to participate every week. The sign-ups and player availability will help the coaches to plan accordingly.

PRE-COMPETITIVE

Preschool Program for 3-4 Year Olds

This program is designed for 3-4 year olds getting to touch the ball in a playful soccer environment. The participants get to familiarize themselves with foot and ball skills. There is a lot of hands-on coaching and demonstration as well as manipulation to enhance muscle memory for ball managing skills. The coach and kids play a form of soccer at the end of each session. This is where the kids get exposed to the game concept as well as foster a healthy attitude toward competition.

Please note, the Academies are open to boys and girls.

The objective of our Academies is to gradually prepare our younger players to take their first steps towards competitive soccer beginning at the under 8 age group.  Training sessions will be two times per week with each session lasting 1 hour 15 minutes.  There will also be 4-5 intrasquad weekend games per season. Training curriculum will be centered upon developing coordination, agility and ball mastery, as these are the key building blocks required to play the game of soccer. Your child will learn how to interact with other children in the invaluable environment of team sports by means of fun, energetic and challenging activities and games specifically designed for this age group. The Academies are gender separated, except in Portola Valley, and they are coached by our professional coaches. We are confident that your child will enjoy a fun, exiting and rewarding experience learning how to play the world's “beautiful game.”
