Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the goal of this program?

The goal of the program is to provide soccer training to all Community Club players at an affordable level. Building a better soccer foundation both in the player and the club they play for.

 

What does my soccer player have to have at the training session to participate?

Wear soccer/sports appropriate clothing. Shorts/Tee shirt or soccer shirt/proper footwear.

Size age-appropriate soccer ball (size 4) and water bottle.

 

What if we are on vacation and miss one week during the training is that an issue?

No not at all. 

What is the difference between this and all the soccer camps I see posted around?

Most of those camps are usually one week in duration where the players are exposed continually for 5 days to training. Here the lessons are spread over a 4-week time frame, giving the player time to try it out at home with friends and family. 

 

What if my child attends a camp but still wants to sign up for this program?

Yes, it will only enhance their soccer skill foundation. Like in school sometimes players gravitate to different coaching styles. The player feels more comfortable and learns more.

 

What if I coach a team and most of my players want to sign up for this program, will they train together?

If the age level and gender  works out yes.

 

What if we live in District “A” but District “B” works out for our family or travel reasons can we enroll there?

Yes, you can. We want this to work out for the players and families.
