U9 Soccer Academy Pilot Program Outline
For players born in 2014 and 2015.
This pilot program is an introduction to our game model in which players are grouped with others of similar demonstrated performance and move through specific curriculum for training. To deepen understanding of the game, players participate in a varied match-day experience, either playing in balanced or tiered games based on a periodization calendar. Players of all genders register for this program.
Players of all abilities and experience levels are welcome! After initial observations, players will be placed in similar training groups to improve coaching dynamics and competitiveness.
Our technical team will plan and oversee the overall program that includes the program philosophy, training methodology, game model, curriculum, and coach education. Qualified technical leads are appointed to deliver, manage, and lead the program with support from volunteer coaches. The idea is to build volunteer coach capacity to help build future programming.
Pilot session: Four weeks beginning September 12 and ending October 6.
Training day(s): Players choose either a one-day or two-day training experience with a choice of Tuesday and/or Thursday. Limited spots per day are available! Players are assigned to a training group of 12 to learn in a station-based environment led by a certified technical lead with support from volunteer coaches. *Please note session plans change on a weekly basis.
Match Day: Participants are assigned to a roster of up to 8 players and have a weekly match-day experience (4v4 format consisting of two, 20-minute halves). Technical leads and coaches will adapt rosters to diversify the match day experience for players. Match days are on weekends, either Saturday or Sunday and will be the weekends of September 17/18th and September 24/25th.
