Age Group Practices

Age Group Skills Sessions are designed to maximize the volunteerism of our community while ensuring a coaching standard.  As promulgated by the US soccer Small Sided Games Manual, the Director of Coaching and the cadre of trainers run sessions with parent coaches to teach both coaches and players the elements of the game and successful coaching practices.  The DOC and trainers develop the season plan focusing on games to promote repetition in foundational skills that are age appropriate.  Coach participation is critical to the transfer of coaching skills, coaches working together for the development of the children, and raising the standard for recreation coaching in our club.

Spring Age Group sessions will be at Burke School.
