Summer Soccer Training is here!
Coach Adam Ritchie (C License and ODP coach) will be offering a 5 week (10 session) summer soccer training program for players U11-U14 Boys and Girls and U15-18 Boys starting June 14th. The sessions are limited to 25 players that want to improve their soccer skills during the off season. After talking with many college and club coaches it has been expressed time and time again that players need to be playing in a structured environment throughout the summer in order to improve individual soccer development, along with pick-up games with friends, especially at this age. This program will focus on improving technical skills, small group tactical development, speed of play, and creativity. The topics covered in this program are areas where college coaches feel players are lacking when they attend College ID camps. Your son or daughter will start attending College ID camps within the next 2 years. The training they are involved in now will have a direct effect on how they are playing in 2 years! All training will be at Bissett Park in Radford.
Should my child participate in this program over a camp?
I would never recommend a player not to get as many touches on the ball as possible. The difference between a residential camp and this program is a camp lasts only 3+ days. After those 3 days what structured environment are the players training in? While this program is designed to give the player training opportunities over a 5 week period with sessions twice a week. We will set weekly technical training skills and fitness goals for the players, by doing this they will continue to train on their own.
All training is on Mondays and Wednesdays from
(1:30pm-3:00pm Boys/Girls U11-U14),
(3:00pm-4:30pm Boys/Girls U15 to U18).
All training will be held at Bissett Park in Radford.
*Age groups may be combined if low numbers.
